More information 


Led by internationally recognised research, this study programme focuses on the aspects of fundamental and applied physics, on the formation of new functional solid surfaces produced by physical vapour deposition high technologies, and many other exciting issues, starting with experimental research and ending with theoretical computer simulation.
The Master + model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

Intake will not happen if programme “Materials Physics” will be approved by Centre for Quality Assessment in Higher Education and registered at Ministry of Education, Science and Sport.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. KTU physicists are internationally famous for research in processes on the surface, radiation interaction with materials, nanotechnologies and thin films processes.

2. Students conduct research in scientific laboratories of KTU Department of Physics, Microsystems and Nanotechnology Research Centre, Santaka valley.

3. Master+ model offers either to masterpiece in the specialisation or to strengthen managerial/interdisciplinary skills by choosing individual set of competencies required for career.

Career opportunities

Prospects at the labour market and higher than average remuneration
Surveys of the labour market emphasize that specialists with knowledge of high technologies and nanotechnologies, and practical skills, will dominate in the list of the most promising future specialities. According to the data of Research and Higher Education Monitoring and Analysis Centre (MOSTA), the graduates are marketable at the labour market and their remuneration is higher than average in the market.

“I would suggest the studies of Applied Physics for the graduates of secondary school, who like sciences, but are not sure which particular speciality they want to study. Graduates of Applied Physics studies can easily direct their knowledge towards specializations of various areas, even though it might take longer than graduating from the desired speciality.”UAB “Elinta”, Director, Vytautas Jokužis.

“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 simulation, 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.
