Overview

Bachelor in Mechatronics at KTU offers a fusion of skills and knowledge in mechanics, electronics, computer science, and programming. Mechatronics combines many technological fields; therefore, the KTU study program is designed in such a way that it not only focuses on mechanical and electronic parts of the mechanisms but also includes software management skills. Professionals in this field are said to be very versatile; they contribute greatly to the ongoing 4th Industrial Revolution, reducing the need for human manual labour, which is being replaced by robotic and automated devices.

Graduates of the BSc Mechatronics study program have exceptionally wide career opportunities in the global market: they work in such high-tech sectors as aerospace, and biomedicine, and they design and manufacture transport and production automation equipment.

After completing this study program, you will have knowledge of mechanics, control engineering, and information technology, you will be able to use this knowledge and skills to develop and implement complex technical systems. Who could be more valuable than a professional possessing such interdisciplinary knowledge?

  • KTU is a pioneer of the studies in mechatronics in Lithuania and has a long-standing experience in the field,
  • Open access to a wide range of state-of-the-art educational and research facilities
  • Hands-on experience in mechatronics and robotics.

Values

Mechatronics – engineering „decathlon“
These interdisciplinary studies allow gaining knowledge and practical skills in mechanical, control, and computer engineering as well as apply them for problem-solving through a systems approach. The program provides a broad technical background, which is highly advantageous when opting for further graduate studies in mechatronics, mechanical engineering, control technologies, or other related fields.

Multidisciplinary competences for creative problem solving:

  • The modern industry faces an increasing shortage of versatile professionals, who possess a wide-ranging engineering skillset that is required when solving complex and diverse technical problems. In this program students are introduced to applied mechanical, electrical, electronics, and control engineering, gain knowledge in the design of structures and mechanisms through the application of conventional and smart materials as well as learn the design, programming, and implementation of mechatronic and robotic systems. The acquired multidisciplinary and team working skills enable the students of Mechatronics to become effective contributors in various collaborative projects related to the design, development, installation, or maintenance of complex machines and devices.

Mechatronic qualifications meet the needs of modern industry:

  • The engineering industry is among the largest employers, therefore the students in Mechatronics have an ample selection when planning their carrier path. In Lithuania alone, there are about 2000 companies, where many job positions are related to mechatronics to some extent. Therefore, the graduates are successfully employed in nearly all manufacturing and service sectors, where they pursue careers as CAD designers and product developers, research analysts, automation and operation engineers, instrumentation and quality control engineers, maintenance and support engineers as well as sales engineers, technical consultants or project managers. Alternatively, the graduates may embark on a research path within the academia and R&D organizations or establish start-ups in order to develop and commercialize high-added-value mechatronic products.

Competitive advantage in the job market of today and tomorrow:

  • Due to interdisciplinary knowledge and skills, the graduates of Mechatronics are valued by employees as being able to more rapidly adapt to specific requirements of a particular engineering-oriented job position. This professional flexibility facilitates the pursuit of various carrier paths within different manufacturing industries as well as within the technical service sector. Experts in mechatronics are crucial in highly innovative and internationally competing manufacturing companies, where process automation is inevitably based on mechatronic technologies. Mechatronics engineers are particularly welcome in industrial and R&D sectors of developed countries, where smart mechatronic systems are continually developed and implemented in advanced technological machinery, robotics, medical and testing devices, and aerospace and automotive equipment.

The most advanced mechatronics laboratories in Lithuania:

  • KTU pioneered studies in mechatronics in Lithuania and has long-standing experience in the field as well as provides open access to a wide range of state-of-the-art educational and research facilities. As part of their curriculum, the students acquire useful hands-on experience in mechatronics and robotics.

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 your professional knowledge and expand your career opportunities.

These studies Investors’ Spotlight quality mark:

  • KTU BSc Mechanical Engineering study program was awarded Investor’s Spotlight quality label, established by Investor’s Forum together with the agency Invest Lithuania as proof that it meets the best expectations of international business and industry.
