Production Engineering

Modern companies constantly need specialists capable to work and maintain modern production equipment.

The specialists graduating from the Production Engineering study programme implemented by Šiauliai State University of Applied Sciences will be in demand in the labor market because they will be able to use modern software design packages CAD / CAM / CAE, as well as will be able to install and maintain CNC machines, mechatronic systems, laser devices, and perform digital production supervision engineering and consulting work in manufacturing companies that require integrated knowledge. Students will acquire integrated and prospective knowledge of mechanics, electronics and informatics in the labour market, therefore they will have engineering versatility, which gives them a competitive advantage.

The programme is best suited for those who are distinguished by engineering thinking and desire to learn independently apply knowledge to concrete problems.

Why at Šiauliai State University of Applied Sciences?

Students in modern laboratories design and manufacture logistics robots, robotic logistics terminals, strengthen practical skills by installing, combining and operating pneumatic devices and hydraulic system elements.

Further possible career paths

Access to professional activity

Graduates of Production Engineering study programme will be able to work in manufacturing companies as technologists-programmers capable to develop CNC device management programmes and apply them in practice; masters, production managers capable of organizing the production process; digital mechanics engineers, understanding the importance of modernizing production processes, capable to select, assemble and adjust new equipment; consultants in the field of digitization of production processes. The lack of these specialists is mostly felt in the innovative manufacturing sector, which has the greatest potential for development and which is inevitability based on advanced mechatronics technologies.

Access to further study

Graduate can continue studies in Lithuanian and foreign higher education institutions following study programmes of the second cycle in study fields of production engineering, mechanical engineering and electronics engineering.
