Automotive Electronics

There will be no admission to this study programme in 2024!

A large part of automobiles functions are inseparable from their electrical and electronic systems, which must be maintained and, if necessary, repaired. Study programme trains qualified specialists capable of installing electronic control systems for vehicles, to diagnose, maintain and repair vehicles' electronic and mechatronic systems as well as choose innovative technological and organizational tools.

It is interdisciplinary study programme developing special skills in electronic and transport engineering study fields. Šiaulių valstybinė kolegija has modern automobile technical maintenance and diagnostics workshops.

Graduates of this programme have already presented their own handcrafted vehicles – a sports car, electric recreational karting, electric scooter, four-wheel electric karting - as final projects.

Why in Šiaulių valstybinė kolegija?

Modern laboratory, technical and diagnostic software is used during the studies, which have been highly evaluated by international experts. Programme graduates are employed in automobile technical maintenance and repair companies as well as in technical testing centres.

Further possible career paths

Access to professional activity Graduate will be able to work as an engineer, a foreman, a head of automobile repair and exploitation company, auto service, automobile technical inspection center or could set up a private business and run it.
