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.
