Testimonials

Virginijus Brundza, AB "Freda", Production and Technical Manager

Graduates of this programme have a well-developed systematic-logical thinking, much practical and latest theoretical knowledge of technologies used in the modern industry and their environmental impact. The ability of such specialists to see the situation from various angles – technological, economic, environmental and social – is fascinating and inspires trust in their professional skills. I think these specialists are welcome not only in the industry but also in the business and public institutions.
