Just few universities-partners of the programme are University of Bologna, (Italy), Ilmenau University of Technology (Germany), Mendel University (Czech Republic), University of Minho (Portugal), Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain).
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 UAB Elinta, UAB Kitron, UAB Telrada, UAB SAPA profiliai, UAB Nano Avionics, etc.
Graduates have an ample choice of companies – a significant part of all processing and extractive industry can be attributed to mechatronics. The trend of replacing purely mechanical mechanisms with intelligent mechanical systems is well underway, and has been expanding over the past 30 years. During the last years the graduates have been employed in various significant companies both in Lithuanian and abroad. As a result, programme graduates will have great prospects on their career path in various areas:
“I graduated in Germany with my bachelor´s degree in Mechatronics at the University of Applied Science Koblenz. Afterwards I decided to continue my studies abroad at the Kaunas technological University (KTU). Here I attended the master program of mechatronics with a specialization in micro- and nanotechnology. At the University I acquired a lot of useful knowledge according measurement methods to analyse nanostructures and materials as well as innovative manufacturing processes such as 3D-printing, electron beam melting, etc. In contrast to my technical subjects I was also able to take some classes in Lithuanian language which was quite a challenge. Still I managed to learned some important basics like how to order drinks in a bar or ask for someone´s name.” - SON-X, Project manager Clemens Dicke.
