More information 


The study programme is intended for those who associate their future with Transport and automotive industry. Creativity is the programme graduates‘ exclusive competence, very much sought by the employers and determining progress in Technologies.

Ford Motor Company (Germany), JSC ALTAS Commercial Transport, Olsbergs Motorsports Evolution (Sweden), JSC Elinta, Gronholm RX Team (Finland), JSC Continental Automotive Lithuania, JSC Schmitz Cargobull Baltic (Germany/Lithuania), Public Enterprise Transport Competence Agency, Lithuanian Road Administration (under Ministry of Transport and Communication) – foreign and Lithuanian companies, where the graduates are employed as designers of vehicles and vehicle systems.components, transport system and process investigators/planners, and transportation and traffic engineering specialists.

The Vehicle Engineering programme is Your opportunity to write own history of a successful career through involvement into the projects initiated and developed by the students: The Student Formula, Driving Simulator, Experimental Hybrid Vehicle, Electric Car, Electric ATV, Karting, Buggie, and by building experience in learning/project/research activities abroad: at Munich University of Applied Sciences, the Technical University of Berlin (Germany), NASA‘S Ames Research Centre (the U.S.), etc.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. Engineering group projects involve application of state-of- the-art diagnostic technologies and design environments – CATIA, ADAMS, etc.

2. Students learn to work with Solidworks, Adams, VISSIM, VISUM, MATLAB and other software which is applied by international business companies in the vehicle design industry.

3. Engagement in projects run by the students of Vehicle Engineering: Experimental Hybrid Vehicle – Electric Car, The Student Formula, Sustainable Urban Mobility Planner, etc.

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”.
