WHY STUDY LIGHT ENGINEERING AT VILNIUS UNIVERSITY?
Light Engineering is the programme with no close rivals at the neighbouring universities within the Baltic region. It combines a practice-oriented and shorter studies focused on light technologies, which is among the best developed and fastest growing high-tech fields in Lithuania. Most of Light Engineering courses are taught by leading Lithuanian professors and scientists that are active in this field.
Even more, the programme offers a unique possibility to learn the practical skills using the modern growth and characterization equipment available at the National Centre for Physical Sciences and Technology. Light Engineering graduates will acquire the professional competence to carry out the complex tasks requiring knowledge of semiconductor physics, new growth technologies, semiconductor optoelectronic devices, such us modern lasers, LEDs, OLEDs, solar cells, etc. They will learn the modern digital modelling techniques, and will be able to use the software for the process automation and control.
Students can participate in ERASMUS+ mobility programme or use VU’s Bilateral cooperation agreements which give an opportunity to study at VU’s Partner Universities or do internship abroad.
The graduates will acquire knowledge and competences allowing them to pursue a carrier in light technology industry in Lithuania or abroad, or to continue the university studies. Also, they will be able to continue their studies at Masters and PhD levels.
