Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
• a university Bachelor’s degree(min. length – 180 ECTS) in engineering, physical/biomedical sciences (molecular biology, biophysics, biochemistry) with a good average grade (min. CGPA>60%),
• motivation (skype interview),
• proficiency in English: IELTS ≥6.0, TOEFL ≥85, CEFR ≥C1, or equivalent.
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 (the latter is not applied to those who graduated in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc.)
If an applicant does not have any official test, online examination may be organised by KTU.
This Materials Science study programme is designed for preparation of the Masters of materials science, who have research skills, deep theoretical and experimental knowledge of material composition and improvement of their characteristics, knowledge of methodology and technique for technological measurements of materials, processing and analysis of experimental results, knowledge of application of high technologies (micro- and nanotechnologies) in materials science. The programme combines fundamental and engineering studies. The graduate will be able to create and apply functional materials and technologies of their production. The programme provides a possibility to choose a personal set of modules of 30 credits in a desired study field, taking into consideration the nature and work’s nature and need.
Guest speakers from Shizuoka, Stanford universities, Tokyo Institute of Technology
Key words: functional materials and technologies, surface engineering, micro- and nano- materials and structures, analysis methods of materials

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".
