Feedback on the programme:
The studies and the practice gained during studies formed and prepared me for the labour market. In my opinion, engineering education in the labour market is an advantage and a necessity. Given that Klaipėda is a port city, it is very important to have the basics related to ships or port transport logistics. The acquired knowledge and work practice enable us to move confidently and enter the international labour market, which opens up new opportunities and great prospects for the future.

Klaipėda University gave me a chance to get to know myself, to understand what I want to achieve in life. During these years, I learned a lot; I worked under teachers who knew their subjects well and shared both theoretical and practical knowledge with us. While studying in the Engineering and Management of Liquefied Natural Gas Terminals study programme, we felt a lot of attention and support from faculty, the head of the programme, University administration, and business representatives, which motivated us a lot, because the study programme was completely new and we were the first students to choose it.
While studying at the University, I also had the opportunity to contribute to research – I worked at the Waterborne Transport and Air Pollution Laboratory of the Marine Research Institute. I was responsible for the air pollution measurement equipment and its operation.
