More information 


Increasing negative impact of transportation system on people and environment is identified as a strategically significant problem of many developed countries; new knowledge and competences are needed for solving of this problem. Acquisition of methodology for development of ecological vehicles with hybrid power units or alternative fuel, and searching for scientific-engineering solutions for increase of the efficiency of power units contributes to creation and development of safe and sustainable transportation and logistics system.

Career opportunities

Successful career prospects
Creative graduates of the programme who relate their future with engineering activities, have excellent prospects of international career while working at the companies of design, production and maintenance of the vehicles and participating in various production and renovation projects: from transport engineers constructors / researchers to project managers and managers of transport company / section.

"Graduates, who actively work at the Institute (perform planning, design of road construction, construction works, reconstruction, correction works (repair) and maintenance, as well as assessment of the performed works), have good knowledge of the methodology for development of the models adequate to transportation system: they develop and install methodology, algorithms and software tools, which enable easier, faster and more reliable simulation of interaction between transport infrastructure and flows with individual assessment of prevailing vehicles, providing precise recommendations for improvement of urban and peri-urban transport infrastructure." – VšĮ "Kelių ir transporto tyrimo institutas", Deputy Director Algis Pakalnis.

"Successful engineering activities in cooperation with German constructors is determined by the understanding of methodologies of development of the vehicles, understanding of "green technologies" (alternative fuel and hybrid power units) and knowledge acquired during studies at the University, as well as possibilities of their use at students’ projects and scientific research performed by the University – particularly valuable are skills of team work, obtained during participation in development of experimental cars with hybrid power units and alternative fuel."UAB "Altas komercinis transportas", Project Manager / Engineer Marijus Natanas.
