Overview

The programme is created at the junction of science and industry in cooperation with the largest chemistry companies in Lithuania: AB Achema (specialises in the production of fertilisers) and AB ORLEN Lietuva (the largest oil refinery in the Baltics) to educate qualified technologists. Special focus is laid on the design of products and processes, management of technological systems, understanding of processes and equipment of chemical technology. Practical skills are acquired using one of the most advanced in the EU chemical engineering laboratory and analytical equipment.
The Master + model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. Ranked No. 1 in Lithuania among all the programmes in chemical engineering by the opinion of employers, students and international experts (Reitingai, 2016).
