High school / secondary education (or higher)
• a senior high school diploma with a good average grade (min. CGPA >60 %),
• maximum 3 years after high school graduation is eligible,
• minimum average grade (CGPA) > 60 % in each entry subject: final exams of Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Russian.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
The documents must be legalised (Apostille)by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country where the documents were issued. This requirement does not apply for the documents issued in the EU and Belarus, Ukraine.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
The accepted student must bring all notary verified documents which were submitted during the application as well as their originals upon arrival or send before:
International Studies Office
You will also need Police Clearance Certificate (non-criminal record) from all countries you have lived before arriving to Lithuania for more than 6 months. We recommend to take Police Clearance Certificate not earlier than 1 month before departure.
If your previous studies have been fully in English and it is marked on your degree certificate or transcript, or noted in a confirmation from the school which confirms that your studies have been fully in English language, additional English test may not be required.
If an applicant does not have any official test, online examination may be organised by KTU.
Specific requirements for Non-EU applicants:
Maximum gap after high / secondary school or later studies cannot be more than 3 years.
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.

"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
