Department of Materials Engineering

Department of Materials Engineering is a new department of KTU, created after reorganization, merging Departments of Textile Technologies, Clothing and Polymer Products, and Wood Technologies.

Department curates the following study programmes:

First tier university study programmes (Bachelor degree)

Second tier university study programmes (Master degree)

Third tier university study programmes (Doctoral degree)

Subjects of research of Department of Materials Engineering are associated with priority scientific fields approved at KTU:

  •  “New high tech materials”: functional textile for medicine and human safety; development of heterogeneous structures of materials and virtual simulation of their operational process; development and assessment of multifunctional polymer materials; textile for health and welfare of people; development of technologies for 3D prototype polymer casings for cultivation of stem cells; development of composite materials using implantable smart structures for expansion of material’s functional characteristics; research of links between hierarchical characteristics of wood structure, simulation of mechanical characteristics of composites, simulation of primary processing and characteristics of composites.
  •  “Technologies for Sustainable Development and Energy”: development and research of protective silicone and polymer coating, protecting from harmful environmental effects; innovative thermally and chemically modified wood coatings; development and assessment of nanofiber structures; mechanical behaviour of eco-energy efficient wood products.
  • “Sustainable growth and sustainable sociocultural development”: preservation of Lithuanian ethnographic textile heritage; creative designing of elements for industrial design, interior and exterior; fashion design; project development and entrepreneurship.
