The aim of study program „Hydraulic engineering“– training highly qualified specialists of engineering, who are able to conduct scientific or applied research, to use advanced scientific methods for evaluation of water engineering structures as water supply and wastewater treatment plants, polders, dams, ponds, pumping stations, drainage, hydraulic and other structures, and their environmental impact, to integrate knowledge of different fields in solving theoretical and practical problems of water resources engineering, analysis and simulation of environmental changes and processes of engineering nature.
Feedback of Student
“Thanks to the know-how gained during my master studies, I was able to immediately find a job that perfectly fits my background studies. Furthermore, it’s a way to discover a fantastic country, as Lithuania has been for me for 2 years.” Federico Rubiu, Programme Alumni from Italy
The outcomes of study programme
Upon the completion of the study programme, graduates will be able to:
- design water engineering structures, evaluate influence of water management systems on environment;
- assess the reliability of hydraulic engineering structures by modern scientific research methods;
- propose innovative technologies for water quality improvement and sustainable use of water resources;
- evaluate and manage local and international projects for water conservation, management, and civil engineering;
- apply hydraulic constructions calculations methods and methodologies as well as evaluation techniques for water uses requirements for food production.
The graduates of Hydraulic Engineering are able to work as designers, experts, consultants, and supervisors in:
- water engineering design institutions, civil engineering companies;
- water, environment, and hydraulic structures management institutions;
- consulting firms in the field of water engineering;
- education and research in the field of water engineering.
- University Bachelor’s degree diploma (or higher) and its supplement (Transcript of Records or Mark Sheet)
- priority is given to those from Hydraulic Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering
- additional courses might be required
- Proficiency in English (CEFR – B2 or equivalent/ TOEFL 87 iBT / 534 PBT, IELTS 5.5); if the applicant had not received education in English. After admission all students will be tested for English language level at the Institute of Foreign Languages at Vytautas Magnus University. If English level will be below B2 students will have to study English to reach B1 level in first two semesters of Master studies. Students have to self-fund English studies.
- Admission score is counted based on: Motivation letter * 0,3 + English * 0,3 + Arithmetic average of bachelor degree diploma supplement all subjects * 0,4.
