Career opportunities

"Successful engineering activities at the foreign capital company are enabled by the knowledge acquired during studies at KTU and possibilities of its implementation at the students’ projects – team work skills, acquired during participation in development of an experimental hybrid car, are particularly valuable." – Mindaugas Stonkus, Engineer-Constructor at Ford Werke GmbH (Germany)

_ "At our company we perform modification of minibuses by the German producers Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz according to the specific needs of the clients, adapting them to the needs of passenger transportation or emergency services, therefore not only the knowledge of modern production equipment and LEAN management is relevant, but also methodologies of development of vehicles and understanding of "green technologies" (alternative fuel and hybrid power units), when design solutions are made in cooperation with German engineers-constructors during modification of the body and development of the low floor hybrid passenger busses."_ – Edvardas Radzevičius, General Manager at UAB "Altas komercinis transportas"

Internship is a part of the study programme and may be performed either in Lithuania or abroad with the support of Erasmus+ scholarships. Graduates’ internships are available as well.
