Values

Skills

Knowledge of contemporary technology

Graduates are able to plan, organise and manage construction processes, and solve non-standard engineering tasks on their own by applying the up-to-date BIM and GIS technologies.

Applicability

Studies providing multidisciplinary knowledge

Opportunity to study selected alternative modules and apply acquired knowledge in the fields of construction project management, construction process management, and real estate management.

Career

Abilities to create innovative buildings and exceptional environment

Construction management related decision making requires a broad approach. Scientific research and its application in practice foster creativity and ability to combine various aspects of evaluation into the whole. Namely these specialists are necessary for the contemporary labour market.

Testimonials

Vidas Šlivinskas

Technical Director at AB “Panevėžio statybos trestas”

 

AB “Panevėžio statybos trestas” is successfully cooperating with KTU Panevėžys Faculty of Technologies and Business. Many graduates, having graduated from their study programmes, come to work for us. We are happy with their knowledge and training quality.

Mantas Raišys

Director at “Immo-Invest”

 

A person, when studying, not only learns some “craft”, but also fosters communication skills, which is very useful in a professional activity. Science gives foundations and the rest is up to personal qualities: diligence, persistence, will to seek knowledge, move forward and, undoubtedly, a bit of luck.
