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

Values

Bidirectional studies:

  • As the program emphasizes science, mathematics and technologies, students are well prepared to pursue graduate work in either technological field or physics. Interdisciplinary areas in physical and technological sciences such as novel advanced materials, materials for energy, biomolecular materials, macromolecules, quantum mechanics to devices, surfaces, interfaces, and nanostructures, and computation promise to become increasingly relevant in the twenty-first century.

Visiting professors and experts from industry:

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

Modern and advanced equipment:

  • 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.

Growing demand for specialists worldwide:

  • 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.

Product and service development:

  • Are you interested in creating real products and services while studying? It is now possible to test yourself by getting involved in a product development project (PDP). During the project, you will work in teams, collaborating with KTU researchers and social partners. While solving current, relevant problems you will improve your teamwork, project management, and problem-solving skills, deepen professional knowledge and expand your career opportunities.

Discover Europe with Erasmus+:

  • Choose from a variety of European cities for your Erasmus+ studies. Experience diverse cultures, languages, and academic environments while gaining invaluable international experience. Seize the opportunity to broaden your horizons and make unforgettable memories with Erasmus+.
