Vehicle Engineering

Students have aspirations to associate own future with the automotive/transport sector learn how to design, manufacture vehicles and their systems and components, explore and plan transport systems and processes, and organize and manage traffic. By learning to creatively solve transport engineering problems, anticipate future transport challenges and explore and provide solutions, you will become a designer of vehicles and their components, a specialist in the integration of alternative energy sources into vehicles and systems, or a road and railway transport engineer.

Advanced learning methods


The university applies internationally recognized teaching methods and tools: you will be involved in exciting engineering team projects using modern diagnostic technologies and design environments – CATIA, ADAMS, SolidWorks, etc. –  used in the vehicle development industry.

Opportunities to unleash creativity

Creative activities

Your fellow students will not only be your friends, but also your motivating force. The programme is attended by advanced and ambitious individuals, and you will always be in a dynamic and creative environment full of like-minded people.

During your studies, you will be able to get involved in student projects such as the The Student Formula, Driving Simulator, Experimental Hybrid Car, Electric Car, Electric ATV, Karting, Buggie, etc.. You will also have the opportunity to gain experience at institutions abroad, such as the Munich University of Applied Sciences, the Technical University of Berlin (Germany), and the NASA Ames Research Center (USA).

Theory put into practice


The graduates will be able to apply the knowledge gained at the university almost immediately in the industry. Understanding of equipment design, solid knowledge in technology, and proficiency in a wide range of vehicle systems will enable the graduates to design, model, and develop conventional and hybrid vehicles, investigate and model engine operation and performance, and work with transport systems and traffic engineering.

Employers already on the lookout for your services


You will be able to build your career success story at ALTAS komercinis transportas UAB, Elinta UAB, Schmitz Cargobull Baltic UAB, Kautra UAB, Lithuanian Railways, Ford Motor Company (Germany), Olsbergs Motorsports Evolution (Sweden), Gronholm RX Team (Finland), Continental Automotive Lithuania UAB, public enterprise Transport Competence Agency, Lithuanian Road Administration (Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania), public company Lithuanian Airports, etc.

State-of-the-art learning facilities


You’ll work with the cutting-edge laboratory and specialized testing equipment. Specialized research equipment and software at the Transport and Mechatronic System Research and Aerodynamic Research Laboratories are used for the research under the projects conducted, including the wind tunnel, DL equipment for registration of vehicle movement dynamic parameters, TRITOP photogrammetry equipment for detection of deformation of vehicle structures, vehicle comfort and safety systems and ICEs with Common-Rail injection system and electronic control unit benches, BOSCH ESI-Tronic software, test bench for characteristics of suspension damping elements, defectoscopes for non-destructive control, vehicle control and steering equipment with fuel monitoring capability, magnetic and eddy current traffic flow modeling software VISSIM and VISUM.



Your knowledge and practical skills will enable you to:

  • design vehicles and the systems and components that support aircraft operation, and prepare technical documentation;
  • identify and analyze traffic organization and management issues and find the solutions by selecting appropriate methods and equipment;
  • investigate, assess, and assure the functionality of vehicles and vehicle systems;
  • work independently and as part of a multi-skilled team, interact with/outside the engineering community at national and international level;
  • develop and improve vehicles and vehicle systems by participating in upgrade projects and production.

You may become

The creatives who design energy-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles and the systems or components that support vehicle operation, by integrating design methodology, theory of motion, management and production technologies, and automated design and computer-aided analysis methods.

Experts involved in research and design activities for upgrading/development of vehicle and transport systems, assessing the impact of advanced green technologies on functionality, energy efficiency, and environmental impact.

Transport professionals who investigate and analyze the operational process of transport terminals and safe road and railway traffic and propose/adopt solutions in line with safety, economic and environmental requirements by assessing and leveraging potential risks and legal aspects.

At our company we perform modification of minibuses by the German producers Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz according to the specific needs of the clients, adapting them to the needs of passenger transportation or emergency services, therefore not only the knowledge of modern production equipment and LEAN management is relevant, but also methodologies of development of vehicles and understanding of "green technologies" (alternative fuel and hybrid power units), when design solutions are made in cooperation with German engineers-constructors during modification of the body and development of the low floor hybrid passenger busses.
