Measurement Engineering

It is the main PhD study programme in Lithuania directly related to knowledge of creation of high added-value solutions for various sectors of industry: aerospace, water, ground and air transport, renewable and nuclear energy. The accounting of such strategic energy resources, as oil, gas, electricity, etc. depends on measurable quantities. Areas of manufacturing, storage and support/maintenance require precise quality control, non-destructive testing and safety assurance for humans and environment. Obtained degree provides you with abilities to use the acquired exceptional knowledge at the beginning of the international career as the institution’s leading specialist, senior technologist or technical director.

The main objective of the programme is to educate talented researchers and leading specialists, who may contribute to recent research in a field of measurement engineering, create new knowledge with added value and apply it in practice. The programme aims to develop high level professionals, ready for academic and professional career in leading global education and research institutions
