Program Description

Master of Science in Structural and Building Products Engineering

Kaunas University of Technology

Advanced building products technology and structures, digital construction, policies of sustainable development and energy saving require both comprehensive technical knowledge and the application of analytical, decision making and critical thinking skills.

Structural and Building Products Engineering programme focus on the development of these competencies and provides a unique mix of experimental and computational modelling expertise.

Internationally recognised research

Research groups led by professors V. Vaitkevičius, Ž. Rudžionis, V. Doroševas conduct internationally recognised research in building materials and structures.

Focus on development

The programme focuses on the development of analytical and advanced approach towards building products and structures, their characteristics and applications.

Modern building information modelling software

Building Information Modelling (BIM), applied in the study process, equips the students with the insight and tools to analyse and plan a complex process of construction.

Testimonials

Mantas Raišys, "Immo-Invest", Manager

During studies, the person learns not only a certain "craft", but also develops an ability to communicate with people, which is very useful in the professional activities. Studies provide the ground and everything else depends on personal features – diligence, persistence, willingness to acquire knowledge, to move forward, and, of course, a little bit of luck.
