Today’s Faculty of Civil Engineering is the largest structural subdivision of Vilnius Gediminas Technical University. The Faculty is directly involved in the University’s activity while shaping technical and general culture of our country’s society, educating an individual and the public, and, ultimately, creating material well-being. Its role is to develop and communicate scientific knowledge, as well as to prepare diplomate specialists for the most essential contemporary and future activity fields in our country and abroad.
Apart from being the largest VGTU faculty, the Faculty of Civil Engineering is the second largest faculty in Europe (the first largest faculty is analogous faculty of Technical University in Prague).
This honorable position commits the Faculty to do its best even more. It has become natural that the Faculty has been continuously taking an obvious leading position in the annual assessment of scientific production (assessment of scientific and study publications, high quality scientific journals, etc.).
Time and again scientific works of the Faculty have been acknowledged by state awards and prizes, whereas lectors and scientists of the faculty have been selected as members of study academies in many different countries.
