Vilnius College of Technologies and Design (VTDK) is the largest engineering college in Lithuania, which trains specialists for the transport, energy, construction, electrical and electronics and mechanical engineering sectors. The Vocational Training Department (formerly the Vilnius Railway Transport and Business Services School (VGTVPM)) will start operating on 1 September 2020 at the higher education institution, which fosters partnerships with business.

The College currently offers 15 professional bachelor’s degree programmes, which can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis, as well as 6 vocational training programmes, the duration of which varies depending on the level of education attained.

VTDK is known in business and society for producing competent and adaptable professionals.

By working every day with state-of-the-art equipment and learning about the latest technologies, the students of the VTDK Vocational Department will be able to acquire a profession that will give them the opportunity to succeed in the labour market, or to take the most direct route to becoming a student of the VTDK and to pursue a higher education diploma.
