The Faculty’s scientists and researchers are carrying out projects in the fields of technologies and humanities. There are approximately 100 academic and research staff working at the Faculty.

Close collaboration with business and industry means that the Faculty is providing R&D services for companies and organisations, and the state-of-the-art technological solutions and equipment are openly accessible to the industry partners.

Research infrastructure and services

One of the most efficient ways of strengthening science-business integration is more intensive cooperation. Technological solutions created by the Faculty scientists, the Faculty’s database of best graduates, and other services are open for our partners from commercial and state organisations.

We invite you to use the Building Materials and Structures Research Center, which is accredited by the Lithuanian National Accreditation Bureau to perform tests of many building materials, products and structures.

KTU Open Access Centre

Reservation of equipment and orders for services are available on KTU Open Access Centre.
