More information 


The Applied Physics programme is oriented to fundamental and applied aspects of physics, forming of new functions on the surfaces of solid bodies using radial, plasma and vacuum high technologies, starting with experimental research and finishing with theoretical computer simulation. The programme provides a possibility to choose a personal set of modules of 30 credits in a desired study field, taking into consideration the nature and need of the work.

Guest speakers from KTH, Stanford University, Tokyo Institute of Technology
Research in thin films, surface physics and phenomena, modelling of physical processes, analysis methods of materials, micro- and nano- technologies

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.
