Career opportunities

Prospects at the labour market and higher than average remuneration

Surveys of the labour market emphasize that specialists with knowledge of high technologies, development and application of nanotechnologies and various materials, and practical skills, will dominate in the list of the most promising future specialities. According to the data of Research and Higher Education Monitoring and Analysis Centre (MOSTA), the graduates are marketable at the labour market and their remuneration is higher than average in the market.

"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.

"Multidisciplinary approach is very important while using the advantages of developed new materials in high technologies. The key to success is the overlapping engineering knowledge of various areas, which is acquired in this study programme. Master’s studies of Materials Science provides a possibility to the already employed student to choose optional study subjects according to the needs of contemporary industry, and prospective plans and trends. Such freedom of studies enables the student to provide a maximum added value to the company during his/her studies, which is relevant to development of new business areas and expansion of the existing ones." – Paulius Vilemas, Director of UAB "Energenas".
