Chemistry

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Chemistry is a category of physical science that deals with the structure, composition, and various properties of matter. Some topics which chemistry aims to cover include the formation of chemical bonds, properties of atoms, and the intermolecular forces responsible for giving matter its unique properties.

The Republic of Lithuania is the official name of the country. It is found in Northern part of Europe. Lithuania appreciates science and technology in their education system highly. It has the basic aspects of primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education. Lithuania is another leading country in the provision of arts, science, engineering as well as technological courses. Lithuania has faced several challenges in higher education the last years that led to the creation of 20 universities to enhance its accessibility.

Just few universities-partners of the programme are Mendel University in Brno (Czech Republic), University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria), Technical University of Denmark (Denmark); Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain), University of Angers (France). Internship (studies practice) can be performed additionally to study plan (in summer between the 1st and 2nd year or as a part of Research projects). The students of this programme may perform internship in Lithuania or abroad using Erasmus+, IAESTE, AIESEC, ISIEC, P4V, etc. academic mobility programmes and designated scholarship. Graduates’ internships are offered as well. The main business partners of the programme are the leaders in food industry in the country: Vičiūnai group, AB Kauno grūdai, AB Žemaitijos pienas, AB Švyturys - Utenos Alus, AB Volfas Engelman, UAB ICECO etc. Graduate careers Graduates of Food Science and Safety are easily employed by the companies of food industry or the institutions related to research of food products. Employers value the programme's graduates, because they are able to rapidly find solutions to the problems arising during production and product control. Advice of a student/graduate "Unequivocally, Food Science and Safety study programme was the right choice for me. This study programme provided exclusive chemical knowledge of the components of food products, their characteristics and changes during processing. All material acquired during the lectures and collected library is applied in daily production context. It should be mentioned, that this study programme involves lectures of food safety and quality systems, which we successfully ("by the book") introduced in our new production. Knowledge, acquired during Master degree studies, learned correct work principles and consolidated ability to make conclusions and summarize the achieved results contributed to rapid and successful employment at the successful company of food industry." –, AB Amilina (Roquette group), Senior Technologist Ignas Mackėla Application and admission requirements Academic Requirements Applications are submitted online on http://apply.ktu.edu and all requested documents must be uploaded onto the electronic application form.
