More information 


During studies the students of Materials and Nanotechnologies deepen their knowledge in the ways various materials are created and applied in industry and contemporary high (micro-, nano-) technologies, how characteristics of materials are researched, evaluated and changed. Based on acquired knowledge of material composition, physics and chemistry, they are able to select suitable materials or production technologies, finding solutions for various engineering and technical issues. After half of the study period, you can choose one of the offered specializations: biomaterials or functional materials.

Materials technologies – nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, physical-plasma technologies.
Objects – nano-derivatives and micro-derivatives, biomaterials, nano-structures, films.
Groups of materials – semiconductors, ceramics, polymers, metals, composites.
Materials – composition, characteristics, change of composition, processes, creation, application.

Partners: KTU Materials Science Institute, Brother Semiconductors, Accel Electronics, Radiation Protection Centre
Guest speakers from Shizuoka, Stanford universities, Tokyo Institute of Technology
Specialisations: biomaterials; functional materials

Career opportunities

"Currently the market provides various materials, distinguished by certain physical, chemical, electric or optical characteristics. Creation of a product raises many challenges, related to the appropriate choice of materials for achievement of the desired result and insurance of competitiveness of the final product. Those challenges can be met most effectively by the graduates of the studies of Materials Science, who contribute to the increase of company’s efficiency and product’s added value." – Vytautas Narbutas, director of UAB "Elintos matavimo sistemos"

"University provides wide possibilities for scientific self-expression, which motivates a consistent pursuit of a career. The world constantly presents new challenges, which can be met only by creation of innovative materials, distinguished by new characteristics. Today I can say that it was a right choice and the knowledge, acquired during studies, is very useful at work, which requires constant learning." – Tomas Tamulevičius, Junior Researcher at KTU Institute of Materials Science
