More information 


The cross-field programme covers the branches of aviation engineering, aviation mechanics and aviation electronics enabling the graduates to get involved in design of air and space vehicles, their systems and elements, to perform assessment of their condition and performance, to deal with engineering issues in functionality, reliability and communication of information, and to conduct analytical, modelling and experimental research.

Top reasons to study at KTU:

1. The first in Europe cluster of aeronautical engineering companies and educational institutions has been created in Lithuania with the lead of KTU in 2016.

2. Laboratory equipment and software complying with the international standards: Laboratories of Aerodynamic Research, Nano-Satellites and Avionics, Radio and Optical Communication, Missile Technologies, Digital Modelling, etc.

3. The study process involves application of recent technologies used by international companies operating in aviation and space industry.

Career opportunities

Creative graduates of the programme, who relate their future to engineering activities, will be able to conduct scientific research, provide consultations and perform management work in aviation and space industry. Working in the areas of development and application of satellites, regular and unmanned aircraft systems, they have great prospects for successful career:
aeronautical engineers
project managers
managers of aeronautical company/department, etc.

_“Priorities of the development of strategic aerospace technologies of the European Commission, Lithuania’s cooperation with European Space Agency, USA Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), growth of the market of small satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles, development of aeronautical technical centres in Lithuania provide graduates with good career possibilities.
While Lithuania seeks a membership of the European Space Agency and taking into consideration the situation of the development of European and global aviation and space technologies, it is forecasted for aeronautical engineers to become particularly relevant for the association’s companies in the nearest future.
Study programme “Aeronautical Engineering” is particularly relevant; it promotes creation and development of advanced high technologies and investments in development of aeronautical and space companies in Lithuania.”_ – Director Vidmantas Tomkus, Lithuanian Aerospace Association.
