If not for the transport innovations, our world, both literally and metaphorically speaking, would stand in one place. Vehicle engineering is one of the main driving forces of our economy, culture and technology. KTU’s bachelors in Vehicle Engineering study programme is designed to connect your future with the transportation and automotive industries.
During the studies, you will learn how to design and manufacture vehicles and their systems and components, to research and plan transport systems and processes, and to organise and manage traffic. You will also learn to tackle the creative challenges of transportation engineering, to anticipate future challenges in the transportation industry, and to provide solutions that will solve current problems or prevent them in the future.
Creativity is the programme graduates’ exclusive competence, very much sought after by the employers.
Ford Motor Company (Germany), JSC ALTAS Commercial Transport, Olsbergs Motorsports Evolution (Sweden), JSC Elinta, Gronholm RX Team (Finland), JSC Continental Automotive Lithuania, JSC Schmitz Cargobull Baltic (Germany/Lithuania), Public Enterprise Transport Competence Agency, Lithuanian Road Administration (under Ministry of Transport and Communication) are among the companies, where our graduates work.
The KTU’s Vehicle Engineering study programme is your opportunity to jump-start a successful career through involvement into the projects initiated and developed by our students: The Student Formula, Driving Simulator, Experimental Hybrid Vehicle, Electric Car, Electric ATV, Karting, Buggie, and by building experience through the activities in other countries: at Munich University of Applied Sciences, the Technical University of Berlin (Germany), NASA’S Ames Research Centre (the U.S.), etc.
Contemporary teaching and learning methods such as engineering team projects using diagnostic technologies and design environments – CATIA, ADAMS, SolidWorks
The programme is attended by highly talented and motivated students, which contributes to the creative atmosphere
Among the specialized research equipment and software available at the Transport and Mechatronic System Research and Aerodynamic Research Laboratories are wind tunnel, DL equipment for registration of vehicle movement dynamic parameters, TRITOP photogrammetry equipment for detection of deformations of vehicle structures, defectoscopes for non-destructive control, vehicle control and steering equipment with fuel monitoring capability and others
