Career opportunities

_“Graduates make a significant contribution to the experimental development and research works performed by the institute. Their basic knowledge of design is useful for preparation of good quality documents of territorial planning, and scientific methodological preparation enables qualified performance of research and analytical work of landscaping.” _ – KTU ASI, Director, Egidijus Blaževičius.

“Studies involved theoretical lectures, we prepared practical projects individually and in teams. Individual work developed responsibility for my decisions, while team work developed social and communication skills for the achievement of mutual objective. I successfully applied it in design activities, working as an architect in Lithuania and completing my internship at the architectural company in China, as well as performing research activities, working with scientific projects, during my internship at the University of Oldenburg. Fascinated by possibilities for application of theoretical knowledge in practice, I decided to continue my education in doctoral studies.“KTU Doctoral student, Ingrida Povilaitienė.
