Values

Applicability

The acquired skills and abilities are applied in practice

Knowledge acquired during studies can be applied by organising commercial activity, optimising technological processes or planning a long-term strategy of a company.

Knowledge

The acquired knowledge will provide opportunities for career advancement

The acquired knowledge of management and teamwork, as well as practical skills will allow postgraduates to feel confidently in the production organisation and begin an independent career.

Career

The demand for the production engineers is constantly increasing

According to the data provided by the Department of Statistics of the Republic of Lithuania, there are over 7,500 entities, working in the field of production and this number is constantly increasing. The start-ups and already existing companies have a huge demand for the highly qualified engineers who are able to organise activity, as well as initiate and manage projects of production.

Infrastructure

The latest equipment and technologies

The latest technologies and equipment are used in the study process, for example, 3D printers EOS Formiga P110 or Objet 30, as well as software SCIIL, which allow providing the required amount of knowledge and competences for the students.

Life

Programme is studied by active and aspiring students

Production Engineering is a study programme for active people who are able to change quickly according to the changing environment, find optimal solutions, and assume responsibility for the company’s performance indicators.

Testimonials

Gintautas Jatulis

Managing Director of UAB “Karbonas”

 

As production processes evolve, computers, electronics, digital control and automation are increasingly used in all the production areas; therefore, there is an increasing need for highly qualified service personnel, working in the field of engineering. This applies not only to the organisations, developing mass production, but also small and medium-sized enterprises, using modern technologies, which often do not develop their own product, but work on the basis of provided orders. There are expectations in the market that graduates of Production Engineering studies will become wise specialists who will be able to comprehend and master these technologies, apply the university’s knowledge in practice, work in a team and who will not be afraid to adopt decisions and reason them

Dalius Sventickas

Chief Technologist of UAB “NB Mechanika”

 

The Master’s degree study programme “Production Engineering” provides an opportunity to improve knowledge obtained during the Bachelor studies both from the theoretical and practical perspective. This is very important during the preparation of the future production engineering specialists. The postgraduates of this study programme are very marketable in the modern labour market – not only in Lithuania, but on a global scale. Both theoretical and practical activities are well combined in the Production Engineering study programme, during which the obtained knowledge can be used during the internship, performed in the companies. I chose this study programme because I wanted to improve my knowledge which I acquired during the Bachelor studies. My acquired knowledge allowed me to get a job in a company, having long-term experience in the field of metalworking which majority of production is exported to the Western European countries.
