Overview

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and oldest of the engineering disciplines and therefore provides some of the strongest interdisciplinary opportunities in the engineering profession. The programme covers analysis of different materials and technologies used in industry, fundamentals of machine design and product development. The competencies, abilities and skills to develop equipment, components and systems of mechanical nature applying modern CAD/CAE systems are of special importance for future career. The programme has a Twin programme option under the ECIU consortium.
Two semesters of alternatives (semesters of free choice) are included into the Programme. According personal needs and interests the students can select:
- Deepening studies in the field of mechanical engineering,
- Development of competencies in practical engineering activities through semester or two semester placement at engineering enterprises (“Extended Practice” model),
- International semester at partner European universities.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. The degree is run as a Twin Programme together with leading European universities under the ECIU (www.eciu.org). Mobile students receive ECIU certificates.

2. Students may choose 2 semesters according personal needs: to deepen theoretical knowledge, to gain practical experience at company, or to benefit from academic mobility.

3. Solidworks CSWA (Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate) qualification test and certificate along with the study programme.

Career opportunities

_“Studies of Mechanical Engineering provides the essential knowledge, which is necessary for a mechanical engineer. This programme focuses both on fundamental knowledge of mechanical engineering, and on innovations of design, engineering analysis and production. Communication with lecturers is pleasant and efficient; they always provide additional consultations outside of lectures and by email.
While preparing my thesis, I used a chance to implement acquired theoretical knowledge in the practical project “Design of Tile Sanding Machine”. The project was implemented as the University’s cooperation with the producer of tiles, which the machine was designed for. Good theoretical preparation in previous academic years and constructive consultations with thesis supervisor enabled combination of acquired knowledge in the engineering project, which was implemented in the industry and defended with the best evaluation.
Assessing acquired knowledge and skills from the perspective of my personal career, I can speak positively about this study programme. In the first semester of the fourth year of studies I started working as a constructor at the company, which produces and assembles lifts. I have successfully worked at this position ever since.”_ – Simon Kazarian,Constructor at UAB “Paradis liftai”.
