Study subjects or parts thereof, corresponding to formal and subject requirements of selected study programme, may be included to individuals who graduated, studied or are presently studying at institutions of higher education in Lithuania or other countries, accredited in accordance with Lithuanian higher education curriculum, and who want to continue their studies at the University at the same or inferior cycle or studies of other studies programmes.

Profile of the programme

Bachelor of Naval Architecture has a grasp of the essential principles of technological science. Bachelor understands the fundamentals of marine design, including flotation, stability, ship and marine technology, resistance and propulsion, ship structures, design theory and practice, management subjects. Naval Architecture aims to develop engineering designers with a capacity for the creative synthesis of science, engineering, technology and business. Together these factors are the key to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of all types of ships, boats and other fixed and floating marine structures: from supertankers to sailing yachts, and from fast ferries to offshore wind turbines and oil platforms. Qualification degree is awarded to a student who:
 is able to apply knowledge and problem solution competencies in a new or unfamiliar environment in wider contexts related with the area of his studies;
 is able to integrate his knowledge and solve complicated problems, formulate decisions, owing partial or limited information and taking social and ethic responsibility;
 is able to convey his conclusions, knowledge and basics of logic in a clear and ambitious manner both to specialists and non specialists.

Examination regulations, assessment and grading

The University applies cumulative grading in order to ensure objective evaluation, active students’ participation during the semester and their ability to apply theoretical knowledge in practice. Cumulative grading final evaluation consists of interim course assignments (test, individual work, paper, laboratory work defence, and etc.) and final exam grades. If the student fails the interim course assignments and does not make to transition grade−minimal grade of determined interim course assessments−he is not allowed to take the final exam. Each study programme is completed by defending final thesis (project) and (or) taking final exams.

A ten-point grading system is used at the University. Knowledge is assessed in the following marks

Pass/fail system KU grade* Definition
Pass 10 (excellent) excellent performance, outstanding knowledge and skills
9 (very good) strong performance, good knowledge and skills
8 (good) above the average performance, knowledge and skills
7 (highly satisfactory) average performance, knowledge and skills with unessential shortcomings
6 (satisfactory) below average performance, knowledge and skills with substantial shortcomings
5 (sufficient) knowledge and skills meet minimum criteria
Fail 4, 3, 2, 1 (insufficient) knowledge and skills do not meet minimum criteria / below minimum criteria

Graduation requirements

Undergraduate and master student’s knowledge, skills and abilities, indicated in the study programme description, are examined and evaluated during the public defence of his Final thesis. Final thesis by its nature can be scientific research or scientific-applied. Final thesis is analytical work based on independent scientific or applied research. A Bachelor’s thesis comprises 12 credits; Master’s thesis comprises 30 credits in the study programme of 120 credits or 24 credits in the study programme of 90 credits. Final thesis and its defence is to demonstrate student’s creativity and the ability to critically evaluate theoretical and practical innovations, as well as others’ previously carried out researches and their results; to indicate student’s knowledge in social and commercial environment, legislation, and financial capacity; to show information sourcing and its qualified analysis skills, computational methods and specialized software and general-purpose information technologies using skills, as well as the ability to clearly and correctly orally or in written present their research results and (or) product designed to different audiences.

Final thesis is defended publicly in front of the Study Field Qualification Committee approved by the Rector. All members of the Qualification Committee evaluate the final thesis and its defence in separate grades in ten-point grading system. Weighted coefficient of defended grade is up to 0.2. The final grade is the arithmetic average of the grades given by the Qualification Committee members, rounded to the nearest whole number.
