Overview

The architecture blends science and art, and it is present in all the spaces around us – our home, neighborhood, and cities we live in. The significance of architecture is more than evident.

The main skill of an architect is the ability to create safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing buildings or dwellings. At KTU, the graduates learn that a building is not only a place where people live and work but is also an important part of our surroundings that makes an impact on how we live.

Our students learn using contemporary technology and knowledge of historical, aesthetic, socio-cultural and ecological contexts. KTU graduates become architects that can create buildings for any purpose, shape the landscape, analyse and design the spaces for the future.

Learning from internationally renowned scholars and practitioners you will analyse and design projects both from user and architects’ perspectives using structural, social, aesthetical, ecological, and economic research. In your studies, you will learn how to visualise innovative architectural design and urban planning solutions, to generate creative ideas and implement them.

Our graduates can create individual projects and work closely within a team, to coordinate and lead projects, as well as work according to BIM methodology together with other construction participants.

  • You will be taught by the experts awarded with the highest national prizes;
  • Possibilities of joining internationally renowned research groups;
  • Talented students can join an advanced study path of KTU GIFTed Community.

Values:

Interdisciplinary studies:

  • You will be introduced to different disciplines, therefore you can then choose what fits you the most. Our practice and the research-based course will challenge you to deepen your designing skills and evaluate all interdisciplinary fields. Also, when choosing alternative modules, you can decide which facets to perfect – communication or technical knowledge.

Become a recognized pro:

  • It is no secret that our graduates are acknowledged as great specialists in Europe and worldwide. After finishing your studies career prospects are broad, that is why you can rest assured about your future. Our former students work not only in the EU but also in China, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, etc.
  • You will gain skills in building information modeling (BIM), parametric design, photorealistic visualization of projects, spatial analysis, and modeling (GIS) of large areas. With a KTU architect’s diploma and a certificate from the Lithuanian Chamber of Architects, you will be able to practice as an architect throughout the European Union.

Study with your future colleagues:

  • KTU stands out as a university that has a cozy study atmosphere and cultivates close relations between students and lecturers. We think that a teacher has to be your friend and colleague, that is why we practice a “discover together” policy. When a practitioner is your professional friend, he helps to integrate academic knowledge into practical experience and involve students in scientific activities.
  • You will be taught by internationally recognized Lithuanian and foreign architects and urbanists: Johan De Wachter, Gintaras Balčytis, Gintaras Prikockis, Martynas Marozas to name a few.
