Export Engineering Export is one of the major guarantees of national welfare and competitive advantage. The process of export starts with the idea of a product, its production, expertise and a successful realisation both in a domestic and in an international market. Export Engineering programme tries to match wide scientific knowledge, import and export technologies, fundamentals of product development, and basics of international economy and management with the good command of a foreign language. For this reason this Bachelor‘s programme is very relevant and future-oriented. In addition to the main study programme, selected for the university studies, students can choose minor studies in Economics and acquire a double qualification degree. Admission requirements for degree students — 12 years secondary or equivalent education; — Intermediate or equivalent exams of Mathematics, Physics; — Computer knowledge.

Lithuania, the biggest Baltic State

Kaunas, the city of students

The country of just over 3 million people was first mentioned in historic documents in 1009. Having more than a thousand years of history Lithuania now is a dynamic member state of the European Union, the World Trade Organisation, The United Nations and NATO. It is situated in a geographical centre of Europe, at the crossroad between Western and Eastern Europe. Safe environment, economical development, friendly people, historic heritage, beautiful nature and fast developing economy attract tourists, business and students.

With the population of over 300 thousand, the second largest city of Lithuania has gained its name as a city of students due to diverse student community, whose joyful contribution to the city atmosphere is noticeable in cosy old town squares and green parks, small cafes and lively clubs. Every September the streets of Kaunas fill with students coming to study technologies and art, music and medicine, law and agriculture at 11 universities and colleges. Our city welcomes students from all over the country and the world. This diversity creates a space for interesting collaborations, inspiring discussions and unforgettable friendships.

Lithuania is a country where traditions  meet innovations. Having one of the oldest uni­versities in Eastern and Middle Europe, Lithuania uses an education system that satis­fies all the requirements of the European Union education policy and has a three cycles (Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral studies) education system, which corresponds to the European Bologna process. Being the 10th least expensive European country to live, it ranks among the top 40 countries in the International Living 2012 Qua­lity of Life Index. Moreover, Lithuania ranks the fifth in the world, the third in Europe and the first among the Baltic States in foreign investment projects. Lithuanians embrace the progress; we rank the first in Europe in the expansion of fibre optic and mobile broadband and have one of the fastest broadband connections in the world. Famous for their hospitality Lithuanians will make everyone feel at home. You will be taken places and visit some of the most beautiful natural reserves in the world, you will be invited to taste traditionally made food and you will most definitely have to watch at least one game of basketball. Whether you are coming for a short visit or for a longer stay, the impressions of our country and its people will stay with you long after you leave.

Situated in the very middle of Lithuania our city benefits from being just an hour’s drive from the capital Vilnius and a couple of hours away from the sea. There are three cross- European highways going past Kaunas, and from the very city centre one can get a train or a bus to any part of Lithuania or set out for an international journey. For those who prefer travelling by plane, Kaunas International Airport is just a half an hour away. Kaunas’ cultural life is loaded with cultural events, such as international film, jazz and dance festivals; our galleries offer a variety of local and international exhibitions. Although Kaunas is an important industrial centre, it benefits from large recreational areas. A relaxing ride on one of many bicycle paths or a walk in a forest park or along the river is a good finishing touch for a day.
