Two prospective study programmes BSc Applied Physics and BSc Materials and Nanotechnologies have merged into one BSc Material Physics and Nanotechnologies study programme. This creates an opportunity for the students to gain knowledge in two fields of study at once – Physics and Nanotechnologies.

The Materials Physics and Nanotechnology programme is designed for students who have an interest in and an aptitude for both technological sciences and physics. This is a unique bidirectional undergraduate study programme in English. The programme provides students with a fundamental knowledge of physics, an understanding of technologies, technological design, together with problem-solving skills, and is aimed to address the needs of students seeking innovative careers in today’s technological age.

Career opportunities

“Currently the market provides various materials, distinguished by certain physical, chemical, electric or optical characteristics. Creation of a product raises many challenges, related to the appropriate choice of materials for achievement of the desired result and insurance of competitiveness of the final product. Those challenges can be met most effectively by the graduates of the studies of Materials Science, who contribute to the increase of company’s efficiency and product’s added value.” – Vytautas Narbutas, director of UAB “Elintos matavimo sistemos”.

“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.
