Applied Informatics

The aim of the Applied Informatics programme is to prepare broad-minded highly qualified information technology (IT) specialists, capable of:

  • Performing analysis of (big) data (text, signals, multimedia, etc.) by applying data mining techniques and tools, designing, developing and deploying data analytics solutions.
  • Formalizing, modelling and simulating complex systems and business processes, designing and deploying artificial intelligence based systems and applications.
  • Performing R&D activities in an industrial or academic setting, pursuing doctoral degree in Lithuanian and foreign universities and research institutions.

Alumni Testimonials

Studies opened a broader perspective and helped to understand the relationship between culture and technology. For me this was beneficial for the stablisment of robotics and artificial intelligence start-up business.
