Klaipeda University

  • Description
  • Free mind and marine spirit…

    Klaipėda Uni­ver­sity today enters into third decade of exis­tence. It is the only struc­turally full-​rate uni­ver­sity in a large part of West­ern Lithua­nia, where a per­spec­tive indus­trial and com­mer­cial poten­tial is ral­lied, where marine com­plex is devel­oped and dis­tinc­tive cul­tural tra­di­tions are cher­ished. It was estab­lished for real­iza­tion of sci­en­tific researches and stud­ies in marine top­ics. Dom­i­nant in the uni­ver­sity are trends in sci­en­tific researches, artis­tic activ­ity and aca­d­e­mic activ­i­ties, which are not cul­ti­vated by other Lithuan­ian uni­ver­si­ties. It devel­ops as an autonomous and mod­ern sci­en­tific and study centre.

    Rapidly grow­ing uni­ver­sity today is home for over 7,000 stu­dents, over 500 pro­fes­sors, asso­ciate pro­fes­sors, lec­tur­ers, includ­ing 4 national award win­ners in sci­ence, cul­ture and art, for 7 fac­ul­ties (Nat­ural Sci­ences and Math­e­mat­ics, Human­i­ties, Marine Engi­neer­ing, Arts, Ped­a­gogy, Social sci­ences, Health sci­ences), 2 study insti­tutes (Nav­i­ga­tion and Con­tin­u­ing stud­ies), 3 sci­en­tific research insti­tutes (Baltic Coastal Research and Plan­ning, Baltic Region His­tory and Archae­ol­ogy, Mecha­tron­ics) as sci­en­tific research and study cen­tres, library with about 0.5 mil­lion books of dif­fer­ent top­ics, botan­i­cal gar­dens, pub­lish­ing office and career centre.
