The world ‘s best of the best in motorsport tests the vehicles of your design and win the championship races. Seems too good to be true, or is it? Having gained knowledge in car powertrains, expertise in their operation and maintenance and mastered specifics in design and manufacturing of vehicles and methodologies of their technical upgrade, you will join KTU graduates network of vehicle engineers who live this dream already.
The study process features teaching and learning methods and instruments conforming to international standards: engineering group projects involve application of state-of- the-art diagnostic technologies and design environments – CATIA, ADAMS, etc. – employed by international business companies in the vehicle design industry.

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”.
