Program Description

Master in Architecture

Kaunas University of Technology

A dynamic, innovative and practical at the same time, the programme is implemented through Studio method – study courses are integrated into a single complex task: students learn architecture-related principles of drawing, composition, physics, materials strengths, etc. and apply directly in the project they are working on.

Another exclusivity of the programme lays in the historical, cultural, theoretical and philosophical critical analysis of existing typologies, associated with the design of aesthetic prototyping which integrates constructions, mechanical, ecological and economic research.

This extended undergraduate programme leads to the master’s degree (5 years programme).

Testimonials

Anna Kinturashvili, Johan de Wachter Architects office, Architect

I knew that I want to become an architect from very early age as my father is also an artist/architect and drawing took a big part of my time. Before coming to Lithuania I was studying architecture at Tbilisi State Academy of Arts. Coming to technical university I was expecting the more intense study of technical subjects. I ended up gaining great knowledge in urban planning. Studies in KTU also helped me to develop my ways of thinking and skills needed to continue working in the field of architecture and urban planning. I started doing my internship in JDWA - Johan de Wachter Architects office, while also working on my thesis. The office is practising architecture and urban planning while exploring collaborative design with future users, so I can easily adapt skills gained in KTU and learn new things every day.
