Mechatronics – engineering „decathlon“

These interdisciplinary studies allow gaining knowledge and practical skills in mechanical, control, and computer engineering as well as apply them for problem-solving through a systems approach. The program provides a broad technical background, which is highly advantageous when opting for further graduate studies in mechatronics, mechanical engineering, control technologies, or other related fields.

Knowledge and skills

Multidisciplinary competences for creative problem solving

The modern industry faces an increasing shortage of versatile professionals, who possess a wide-ranging engineering skillset that is required when solving complex and diverse technical problems. In this program students are introduced to applied mechanical, electrical, electronics, and control engineering, gain knowledge in the design of structures and mechanisms through the application of conventional and smart materials as well as learn the design, programming, and implementation of mechatronic and robotic systems. The acquired multidisciplinary and team working skills enable the students of Mechatronics to become effective contributors in various collaborative projects related to the design, development, installation, or maintenance of complex machines and devices.


Mechatronic qualifications meet the needs of modern industry

The engineering industry is among the largest employers, therefore the students in Mechatronics have an ample selection when planning their carrier path. In Lithuania alone, there are about 2000 companies, where many job positions are related to mechatronics to some extent. Therefore, the graduates are successfully employed in nearly all manufacturing and service sectors, where they pursue careers as CAD designers and product developers, research analysts, automation and operation engineers, instrumentation and quality control engineers, maintenance and support engineers as well as sales engineers, technical consultants or project managers. Alternatively, the graduates may embark on a research path within the academia and R&D organizations or establish start-ups in order to develop and commercialize high-added-value mechatronic products.


Competitive advantage in the job market of today and tomorrow

Due to interdisciplinary knowledge and skills, the graduates of Mechatronics are valued by employees as being able to more rapidly adapt to specific requirements of a particular engineering-oriented job position. This professional flexibility facilitates the pursuit of various carrier paths within different manufacturing industries as well as within the technical service sector. Experts in mechatronics are crucial in highly innovative and internationally competing manufacturing companies, where process automation is inevitably based on mechatronic technologies. Mechatronics engineers are particularly welcome in industrial and R&D sectors of developed countries, where smart mechatronic systems are continually developed and implemented in advanced technological machinery, robotics, medical and testing devices, and aerospace and automotive equipment.


The most advanced mechatronics laboratories in Lithuania

KTU pioneered studies in mechatronics in Lithuania and has long-standing experience in the field as well as provides open access to a wide range of state-of-the-art educational and research facilities. As part of their curriculum, the students acquire useful hands-on experience in mechatronics and robotics.

Product and service development

Are you interested in creating real products and services while studying? It is now possible to test yourself by getting involved in a product development project (PDP). During the project, you will work in teams, collaborating with KTU researchers and social partners. While solving current, relevant problems you will improve your teamwork, project management, and problem-solving skills, deepen your professional knowledge and expand your career opportunities.

My professional experience shows that the graduates of Mechatronics program have valuable knowledge in application of smart materials, process modeling based on virtual systems, process automation, adaptive control systems as well as engineering project management. Strong competences in these and related Mechatronics domains are crucial nowadays when undertaking technical projects related with product development, analysis and upscaling of manufacturing. I would also note that these competences are indispensable in electronics industry, where we observe an obvious trend of shrinking system dimensions, increasing integration density as well as fusion of electronic and micromechanical components.
