Programme overview

Civil engineering is as old as the human civilization itself. Yet, paradoxically – this field of science constantly reinvents itself; it changes, sets new trends and adapts to a contemporary world’s needs.

Probably the greatest challenge for today’s engineers is how to make the most effective use of digital tools (buildings’ information modelling, 3D printing and others) that enable the creation of the most complex structures quickly and economically, meeting the needs of society and individuals.

While studying at KTU, you will get acquainted with the main processes of design, construction, installation and operation of buildings. This is general but essential knowledge that will allow you to choose the desired specialisation in later years of study and focus more on the chosen topic: structures, technologies or building engineering systems.

BSc in Civil Engineering at KTU offers a broad spectrum of courses to prepare the graduates for the dynamic environment of the construction business.

  • Hands-on experience through practical tasks
  • Working with contemporary software packages, such as Building Information Modelling software (BIM), Revit, Scia Engineering, Tekla, DDS-CAD, SES, Bentley, which enable the construction process to move to 5D or even 7D dimensions
  • Out of classroom activities and field trips to construction offices, factories, and construction sites

While studying at KTU Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture, together with students of the architecture program, you will participate in the Joint Project module, during which you will work in teams, collaborate with professionals and gain practical experience in civil engineering. More about the Joint Project in this video. You can view student projects in the digital twin of Kaunas city.

Funding opportunities

All international students automatically become candidates to receive the Scholarship for International Students, which is assigned for first-year Bachelor or Master students with strong academic records and motivation.

Lush parks, lively squares, cosy cafes and buzzing cultural life make Kaunas attractive not only as a travel destination but also as a place to live. In 2022, Kaunas will become a European Capital of Culture.
