The goal of the programme is to train qualified, motivated and creative professionals with deep knowledge and research skills in medicinal chemistry who would be capable of formulating and addressing the challenges of medicinal chemistry science and pharmaceutical industry, seek to work in high technology science and industry companies that develop, manufacture or supply pharmaceuticals or continue with their doctoral studies.

 

Doctoral studies

Chairman of Chemical Engineering PhD Committee – Raimundas Šiaučiūnas | e-mail: raimundas.siauciunas@ktu.lt

Chemical Engineering is a traditional 4year-long doctoral studies programme that grants students a doctoral degree. The programme is created on the basis and it provides:

  • Fundamental knowledge of chemical engineering principles and an experience of intensive research.
  • An environment in which a flexible programme of an intense mentoring takes place, allowing doctoral students to work with well-known researchers in this field.
  • Real experience through carrying out experimental and practical tasks using contemporary testing equipment and methods of analysis.
  • Contemporary computer technologies for the modelling, simulation and control of different processes.

Chairman of Chemistry PhD Committee – Vytautas Getautis | e-mail: vytautas.getautis@ktu.lt

The duration of this study programme is 4 years, it ends with a public defence of the doctoral dissertation. Doctoral students receive comprehensive and interdisciplinary opportunities for studies and research that include inorganic, organic, physical, analytical, numerical and theoretical chemistry, food chemistry, chemistry of materials, atmospheric and environmental chemistry. Research supervisors are experienced professors or associate professors with international scientific reputation.  Research is carried out, using the state-of-the-art KTU research equipment.
The aim of this doctoral programme is to train young researchers who are prepared for a scientific career and who can work as scientists and educators, expanding and deepening their knowledge in chemistry and other related fields, while developing their critical thinking skills, creativity, originality and independence.

Chairman of Materials Engineering PhD Committee – Arvaidas Galdikas | e-mail: arvaidas.galdikas@ktu.lt

Materials engineering is a reasonably wide totality of scientific problems covering various questions related to the research of materials in order to improve the properties of existing materials or to create new materials and to obtain information on the properties of materials not yet investigated (area of material science), as well as technological work aimed to create more efficient methods of material production (it is the object of technology). Thus, materials engineering can be perceived as an area where the two components, fundamental research and practical engineering, are inevitably linked.
During the Materials Engineering doctoral studies the students will carry out research using state-of-the-art equipment according to the global standards, aimed at development and application of knowledge-intensive materials engineering process technologies.
Students of this programme have the opportunity to acquire double doctoral degree at universities belonging to the PCAM network.

Chairman of Environmental Engineering PhD Committee – Žaneta Stasiškienė | e-mail: zaneta.stasiskiene@ktu.lt 

Joint Kaunas University of Technology, Vytautas Magnus University and Lithuanian Energy Institute, PhD programme in Environment Engineering is designed to enable students become first-rate interdisciplinary researchers and acquire the knowledge and skills to succeed in both academic and non-academic career. Students of this programme have a possibility to acquire a double PhD degree, because of the contract with the University of Bologna (Italy).

The main objective of the programme – to educate first-rate interdisciplinary researchers, who are able to develop systemic innovations to improve and maintain the environment for the protection of human health, for the protection of nature’s beneficial ecosystems, and for the environment-related enhancement of the quality of human life, at the same time maintaining compatibility in business and industry.
