Students of these study programmes can choose between the path of Field Expert and Interdisciplinary Expert. Selection is made in the academic information system. Each path (competence) consists of three subjects (18 credits) allocated as follows: 1 year 1 semester (autumn) – first subject (6 credits), 1 year 2 semester (spring) – second subject (6 credits), 2 year 3 semester – third subject (6 credits). A student, who chooses a path of the Field Expert, deepens knowledge and strengthens skills in the main field of studies. The one, who chooses a path of the Interdisciplinary Expert, acquires knowledge and skills in a different area or field of studies. Competence provides a choice of alternative additional subjects.

  • Field Expert (profound knowledge and skills in the area, required for solution of scientific research tasks);
  • Interdisciplinary Expert:
    (fields of different knowledge and skills are combined for solution of specific tasks);

Acquisition of the competence is certified by the issue of KTU certificate and entry in the appendix to the Master’s diploma. In addition, students can acquire an international certificate (details are provided next to each competence).

Competences are implemented by KTU lecturers – experts in their area – and high level business and public sector organizations; their employees deliver lectures, submit topics for the student’s theses, placement-oriented tasks for the projects, etc.

Ingrida Povilaitienė

KTU PhD student

 

Studies involved theoretical lectures, we prepared practical projects individually and in teams. Individual work developed responsibility for my decisions, while team work developed social and communication skills for the achievement of mutual objective. I successfully applied it in design activities, working as an architect in Lithuania and completing my internship at the architectural company in China, as well as performing research activities, working with scientific projects, during my internship at the University of Oldenburg. Fascinated by possibilities for application of theoretical knowledge in practice, I decided to continue my education in doctoral studies.
