The cross-field program covers the branches of aviation engineering, aviation mechanics and aviation electronics enabling the graduates to get involved in design of air and space vehicles, their systems and elements, to perform assessment of their condition and performance, to deal with engineering issues in functionality, reliability and communication of information, and to conduct analytical, modelling and experimental research.

First Aeronautical Engineering cluster in Europe

The first in Europe cluster of aeronautical engineering companies and educational institutions has been created in Lithuania with the lead of KTU in 2016.

Latest software in modern laboratories

Laboratory equipment and software complying with the international standards: Laboratories of Aerodynamic Research, Nano-Satellites, and Avionics, Radio and Optical Communication, Missile Technologies, Digital Modelling, etc.

Vidmantas Tomkus, Lithuanian Aerospace Association, Director

Priorities of the development of strategic aerospace technologies of the European Commission, Lithuania's cooperation with European Space Agency, USA Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the growth of the market of small satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles, development of aeronautical technical centers in Lithuania provide graduates with good career possibilities.

While Lithuania seeks a membership of the European Space Agency and taking into consideration the situation of the development of European and global aviation and space technologies, it is forecasted for aeronautical engineers to become particularly relevant for the association's companies in the nearest future.

Study program "Aeronautical Engineering" is particularly relevant; it promotes creation and development of advanced high technologies and investments in the development of aeronautical and space companies in Lithuania.
