Overview

Combining atoms and molecules to create new materials is an exciting occupation full of creative possibilities. Novel medicines, clean energy, contemporary electronic gadgets, and innovative solutions for building structures and transport – the application and demand for new materials is growing every day.

At KTU, the students of the unique bi-disciplinary Materials Physics and Nanotechnologies bachelor’s study programme get strong education within physics, chemistry and mathematics, combined with courses in materials science that are oriented towards technology.

KTU’s membership in international organisations, such as Inter-Academia, Federation of European Materials Society, Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials, the visiting professors from the world’s best universities, such as Stanford University, Shizuoka University, Tokyo Institute of Technology ensure that the competences of the graduates meet and exceed the expectations of industry and business.

Bachelor of Technological and Physical Sciences in Materials Physics and Nanotechnologies acquired at KTU is a testimony of an investigative, introspective and curious personality whose methodical, rational and analytical mindset can fuel innovation in various fields.

• State-of-the-art research facilities of KTU Santaka Valley available for students
• Possibilities of carrying out research with internationally renowned research groups
• Talented students can join an advanced study path of KTU GIFTed Community


Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. As the program emphasizes science, mathematics and technologies, students are well prepared to pursue graduate work in either technological field or physics.

2. Visiting professors from Stanford University, University of Southern Denmark and experts from industry organize international seminars and workshops to be in touch with global scientific solutions.

3. Besides training laboratories at the faculty, the latest and most advanced equipment installed in KTU science and business valley “Santaka“ is used during the study process.

4. Researches show that in year 2025 the demand for specialists with multidisciplinary knowledge and skills will grow up to 25% in Lithuania, whereas 3,6 million jobs will be created in EU.

Career opportunities

“Currently the market provides various materials, distinguished by certain physical, chemical, electric or optical characteristics. Creation of a product raises many challenges, related to the appropriate choice of materials for achievement of the desired result and insurance of competitiveness of the final product. Those challenges can be met most effectively by the graduates of the studies of Materials Science, who contribute to the increase of company’s efficiency and product’s added value.” – Vytautas Narbutas, director of UAB “Elintos matavimo sistemos”.

“University provides wide possibilities for scientific self-expression, which motivates a consistent pursuit of a career. The world constantly presents new challenges, which can be met only by creation of innovative materials, distinguished by new characteristics. Today I can say that it was a right choice and the knowledge, acquired during studies, is very useful at work, which requires constant learning.” – Tomas Tamulevičius, Senior Researcher at KTU Institute of Materials Science.
