Structural and Building Products Engineering

What materials will we use to build the houses of the future? The construction industry is resource-intensive, so pre-fabricated building elements are becoming increasingly popular. Instead of traditional steel and reinforced concrete, we are increasingly discussing composite and organic materials, including engineered wood. Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodology allows for modeling future structures down to the smallest construction elements, leading to the growing export of advanced products manufactured by Lithuanian construction companies.

In 2023, we updated our study program. It is designed to prepare highly qualified engineers capable of applying advanced digital tools for creating structures and products and their analysis.

During the program’s first semester, you will learn about advanced reinforced concrete and steel structures, innovations in construction product manufacturing technologies, methods for testing construction products and structures, and become more familiar with the finite element method.

In the second part of the program, you will learn more about new composite materials and wood properties and how to ensure the reliability of structural constructions. You will also learn how to strengthen existing structures, learn about the life cycle and durability, and deepen your knowledge in waste management and secondary raw materials recycling technologies, modular construction, regenerative design, and data science for smart buildings.

In addition, you will pay attention to innovation and scientific research, which you can develop together with partners from business companies and faculty scientists.

*Studies are usually conducted in the evenings, but some academic activities occur during the daytime.

Module of the study programme by semesters


Knowledge of the properties of building materials, structures and products determining the strength, durability and reliability of buildings and products. Student is able to solve the scientific tasks of experimental and analytical civil engineering, apply that knowledge when designing complex civil and industrial engineering structures, is able to analyze the tasks of civil engineering, apply proper solution methods and special software.
Engineering sciences Technologies Research sciences Economic and social




Scientist skills

During the studies, it is ensured that the graduates will acquire strong methodological and scientific research and digital competencies in the study process and by participating in scientific conferences and preparing scientific publications.

The newest IT solutions

The program emphasizes the application of building information modeling and strengthens analytical and modeling competencies by deepening software usage skills. Software used: SCIA, IDEA Statica, Revit, Sensoneo, Python, Graphical Scripting, OneClickLCA, etc.

Soft skills

Students are trained in teamwork, working in groups, interculturality, internationality, and negotiation skills.


Place for good ideas

The study program is creative and based on expert activities. Therefore, students’ atypical, progressive thinking is encouraged here, allowing this field to grow and become more and more efficient.

Almost a guaranteed career

The demand for such engineers is huge, so the students of this KTU study program get a job even during their studies. Studies show that 96 to 100 percent of graduates get a job in their specialty after their studies. We cooperate with international companies “Peikko Lietuva”, INHUS Engineering, Staticus, Ecodomus, YIT Lietuva and etc.



What will you gain?

  • You will be able to create spatial mathematical models of structures and engineering systems;
  • Offer accurate and competitive civil engineer design suggestions;
  • Evaluate and forecast the condition and behavior of buildings, building materials, and structures;
  • Successfully communicate and cooperate with specialists and business representatives in other fields on the issues of quality of engineering activities;
  • Solve practical tasks in the field of civil engineering by applying theoretical models and research methods.

You may become

These specialists carry out a wide range of applied research, consult on construction matters, perform activity analysis, supervise the organization of the process, evaluate the efficiency of construction, and promote innovative solutions.

These supervisors manage and coordinate the implementation of a project. They design high-reliability class buildings, reconstructions, and oversee the work of these projects.

These experts take care of technical evaluation of a building, they improve construction and engineering solutions, prepare technical documentation.

These managers ensure that a construction process is being carried out according to the design project (or part of it). They take care of the development and allocates responsibilities, coordinates processes with customers, and strives to do all this by following professional, ethical, and environmental standards.

During studies the person learns not only a certain "craft", but also develops an ability to communicate with people, which is very useful in the professional activities. Studies provide the ground and everything else depends on personal features – diligence, persistence, willingness to acquire knowledge, to move forward, and, of course, a little bit of luck.
