Digital Transformation and System Architectures

In today’s world, information systems (IS) are becoming increasingly important and complex. Effective application of research and engineering solutions allows one to develop a high quality and effective information system in due time and for a reasonable price. This study programme will provide you with a systematic model-based view at the development of IS, which is vital to any system developer; it will also teach you how to apply modern methods, tools, technologies, and standards relevant to this area.

* The title of the study programme has been changed from “Information Systems Engineering“ to “Digital Transformation and System Architectures“.

From business models and user requirements to the high quality information system

In order to create a good information system, it is necessary to know how to analyse and understand the problem domain, also be able to identify and specify system requirements, design the system and then implement it accordingly. The modules of the study programme cover the entire life cycle of information systems development.


Good knowledge of methods, tools, and technologies

The modern development of information systems requires mastering and knowledge about relevant methods and means for the management of IT project, identification and analysis of needs, analysis and modelling of computerised business processes, specification of system requirements, system design, implementation of the designed system, and testing of the implementation. The students are familiarised with various IS development methods, tools, and technologies and taught about their proper selection and application.


Wide selection of work areas

After the completion of studies, the graduates can work as business and system analysts, system designers, testers, quality engineers. Their career can advance to system architect, project manager, and manager of the unit or the entire IT business company.


The specialists of this study programme are welcomed in both the Lithuanian and foreign business companies

There is a huge demand of information systems specialists on the labour market. They successfully find jobs in public sector, as well as business companies engaged in the development, deployment, and maintenance of information systems


Variety of tools and technologies in the process of studies

Different tools are used in different stages of information system development and other specialised tasks. The students will gain in depth understanding and skill of working with MagicDraw modeling environment, IBM Rational Requisite Pro – for the analysis and specification of system requirements, MS Project – for project management, SQL Server Business Intelligence Edition – for business intelligence applications, and .NET Framework for programming. For the development of smart systems, the students will get a grip of the semantic technologies (RDF, OWL 2, SPARQL), and also Blaze Advizor by FICO, which is one of the most advanced business rules management systems at the moment.



Knowledge and skills acquired during studies will allow:

– Develop and analytically assess architectures of the organisations’ performance and information systems;
– Collect, specify and assess requirements for a computerised information system;
– Design software for various information systems;
– Create solutions for performance analysis;
– Manage IT projects;
– Develop information systems based on contemporary knowledge engineering methods and semantic technologies.

MA+ competences

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.
