Control Technologies

Control systems are integral part of many modern technologies, and they will keep playing leading role in the Industry 4.0. Knowledge of contemporary control theory, modelling and optimisation of processes and systems, design of control systems, programming of controllers and other subjects, acquired during studies, enable performance of design and implementation of efficient and safe automated control systems, controlling complex process and facilitating everyday life, and remain competitive in labour market.

The Master+ model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

Master+ is a unique model within a chosen MSc programme

The Master+ model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills in addition to the main discipline by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track providing a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

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.

Studies under Control Technologies programme is one of the best choices of my life. First of all, it was a pleasure to study: students are respected, their personalities are developed, they have a freedom to choose what is best and interesting for them, and they receive support of their lecturers. The programme provides possibilities of working with the latest technologies: department cooperates with international companies, who are leaders of industrial technologies. Lecturers are glad to provide recommendations to the employers and opportunity to combine studies and work.
Secondly, my diploma of Control Technologies programme opened the door not only to Lithuanian, but also to foreign labour markets. I started working at the Lithuanian branch of international company producing electronics and automation components; currently I successfully work at its central headquarters in Germany and I can state that my education and experience are equal to those of the graduates of technical universities of Germany and other European countries.

Modern computerised technologies for production and energy processes have been introduced in Lithuania for quite a few years. Currently in the world, as well as our country, has begun the development of the fourth generation production technologies, which collate modern control, information and technical solutions. It increases production efficiency and reduces environmental impact.
Design, installation and technical maintenance of such systems requires the specialists of control technologies, who are prepared to become the main binding element of those new technologies even before their graduation. Today it is impossible to imagine a commissioning of any industrial or energy facilities without a specialist of control technologies.
The specialists of this field are very marketable both in Lithuania and abroad. Each year 5-8 of such young specialists join our company's team. When we communicate with local and foreign colleagues, we hear and know that other companies also constantly need specialist of this study field.
