Faculty of Informatics

 
The Faculty was founded in 1977. However, the first Informatics graduates were awarded diplomas in 1960. In 2013 the Informatics faculty celebrated the 35th anniversary.
 
The Faculty of Informatics is one of nine faculties at Kaunas University of Technology, which carries out research in informatics and plays a central role in our modern information society. There are 5 academic departments and 2 research centres. 
 
 
 
 

Academic and research staff of 85 employees includes 14 professors and 35 associate professors. In 2013 the scientists of the faculty published 90 research papers, 7 of them are printed in the international journals with Citation Index refered in Thomson Reuters database.

There are 12 computer classes and 6 modern laboratories with 300 computers. Approximately 1200 students are presently enrolled in the Faculty. In 2009, the Informatics Graduation Ceremony was held for the 50th. More than 8 thousand IT specialists finished studies during this period.

The faculty closely works with Lithuanian and international companies: “AdForm”, FESTO, ”DevBridge”, CSC, “Telesoftas”, ATEA, NFQ and others. Provision of theoretical knowledge and practical skills to the students is a key issue of the faculty.
