More information 


Are you interested in the processes in your environment? Are you constantly surprised by scientific and technological achievements? Would you like to contribute to development of high technologies? You should choose the studies of Applied Physics. The study programme of Applied Physics is oriented towards theory of mechanical, electromagnetic, optical, quantum phenomena, as well as its application in practice, particularly in the area of high technologies.

Phenomena – quantum, mechanical, electromagnetic, optical, plasma
Objects – nano- and macro-derivatives, solid body, crystals, nano-structures, films
Models – phenomena on the surfaces of micro- and nano-derivatives, processes in the material, interaction of radiation and material
Application – sensors, nanoelectronics, solar cells, high technologies

Partners: Elinta, Leggato, KTU Materials Science Institute, Accel Electronics, Lithuanian Energy Institute, etc.
Guest speakers from Stanford University, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Center of Physical and Technological Sciences, Lithuania

Advantages: students can choose minor studies in Mathematics, Material Science or Informatics.
1-2 semesters can be spent in partner university under Erasmus+ programme or bilateral agreement with credits transfered.

"I started working at the company "Leggato" as a storekeeper and then climbed my career ladder, only because I acquired a wide range of technical knowledge during the studies of applied physics: starting with acoustics, geometrical optics, strength of materials or computer graphics. The basis of acquired knowledge is enough for successful work, but deeper knowledge of physical phenomena and their application, as well as mathematical calculation or modelling, is necessary for career development. Studies of physics have taught me to find analytical solutions of technical problems. I am glad that studies not only expanded my knowledge horizons, but also created a strong scientific ground. At work, I constantly apply the knowledge, acquired during Bachelor and Master degree studies of applied physics. I could not identify the most significant modules, because all of them were significant and useful."UAB "Leggato", Manager, Dainius Bernatavičius
