The Kaunas University of Technology (also known as KTU) was created in 1922 with the reorganisation of the universities of Lithuania. Its name changed between 1950 and 1990 for Kaunas Polytechnic Institute, which was well known for its ultrasound and vibrotechnics laboratories. The university grew quite well theses years as the first independent technical school.
In 1990 the name went back for KTU as it got back its status of University, and the rectorate started to perform rapid reform of studies and research. The University began and continues to take sustainable partnership with compagnies and universities (more than 60 currently). KTU is now one of the biggest university of the Baltic countries.
