Testimonials

Ingrida Povilaitienė, KTU Ph.D. student

Studies involved theoretical lectures, we prepared practical projects individually and in teams. Individual work developed responsibility for my decisions, while teamwork developed social and communication skills for the achievement of a mutual objective.

I successfully applied it in design activities, working as an architect in Lithuania and completing my internship at the architectural company in China, as well as performing research activities, working with scientific projects, during my internship at the University of Oldenburg. Fascinated by possibilities for application of theoretical knowledge in practice, I decided to continue my education in doctoral studies.
