Program Description

Master in Applied Physics

Kaunas University of Technology

Led by internationally recognised research, this study programme focuses on the aspects of fundamental and applied physics, on the formation of new functional solid surfaces produced by physical vapour deposition high technologies, and many other exciting issues, starting with experimental research and ending with theoretical computer simulation.

The Master+ model offers either to a masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

Internationally recognized research

KTU physicists are internationally famous for research in processes on the surface, radiation interaction with materials, nanotechnologies and thin films processes.

Contemporary and modern equipment

Students conduct research in scientific laboratories of KTU Department of Physics, Microsystems and Nanotechnology Research Centre, Santaka valley.


Master+ model offers either to a masterpiece in the specialisation or to strengthen managerial/interdisciplinary skills by choosing an individual set of competencies required for a career.


  • Phenomena – optical, thermal, relativistic, magnetic, non-linear, nuclear and electronic, ionised particles, interaction of electronic and laser, X-ray, gamma radiation and material
  • Objects – nano- and micro-derivatives, surfaces of solid bodies and thin functional coatings, crystals, nanostructures, films
  • Models – phenomena on the surfaces of micro- and nano-derivatives, interaction of radiation and material
  • Application – sensors, spintronics, elements of alternative energy, high radiation technologies


Dainius Bernatavičius, UAB "Leggato", Manager

I started working at the company "Leggato" as a storekeeper and then climbed my career ladder, only because I acquired a wide range of technical knowledge during the studies of applied physics: starting with acoustics, geometrical optics, the strength of materials or computer graphics.

The basis of acquired knowledge is enough for successful work, but a deeper knowledge of physical phenomena and their application, as well as mathematical calculation or simulation, is necessary for career development. Studies of physics have taught me to find analytical solutions to technical problems. I am glad that studies not only expanded my knowledge horizons but also created a strong scientific ground. At work, I constantly apply the knowledge, acquired during bachelor and master degree studies in applied physics. I could not identify the most significant modules because all of them were significant and useful.
