All KTU Institute‘s of Environmental Engineering activities are inspired by interdisciplinary spirit influenced by the contemporary pace of life and the 4th industrial revolution: connecting the physical, digital and biological worlds, and influencing all areas of science and studies, business and different industry branches.
We study the causes and consequences of climate change, research sustainable technologies and renewable energy, look into motives and obstacles to environmentally friendly business development. The Institute’s scientists and researchers examine society’s involvement in identifying, designing and implementing the innovation needs, and take into account the influence of the lifecycle concept in ensuring public well-being. Also, the concept of a sustainable city encompassing all the above is one of the key research areas in the Institute. Our graduates lead the departments of the Ministry of Economy and Environment of the Republic of Lithuania, are in charge of municipal departments, of Lithuanian industrial and business giants’ manufacturing, sustainability and environmental departments. The professionals grown by and in our Institute develop their advisory business, work in international organisations outside of Lithuania.
