Klaipėda University today

On 5 October 1990, Chairman of the Supreme Council (Reconstituent Seimas) Vytautas Landsbergis signed Decree No. 1-640 on the establishment of Klaipėda University as of 1 January 1991.

Klaipėda University started its academic activities with three faculties (those of Marine Engineering, Pedagogy, and Humanities and Natural Sciences) and about 3,000 students. It celebrated its 25th anniversary with 4,500 students in the Faculties of Marine Engineering and Natural Sciences, Humanities and Education Sciences, Social and Health Sciences, as well as in the Arts Academy, the Institute of Continuous Studies, and the Institute of Baltic Region History and Archaeology. Over the 25 years, the academic staff of the University has increased from 300 to nearly 700 teachers and researchers, including 59% PhDs and/or recognised artists.

Currently, the University implements over 100 study programmes in all three cycles, providing research and technological innovations-based contemporary knowledge which ensures advanced university education and high professional skills and develops an intelligent, responsible, and creative personality. Our Alma Mater has over 30,600 graduates whose ranks include PhDs, members of the Seimas and the Government, heads of major enterprises, engineers, teachers, soloists, and theatre professionals.

The University annually implements over 60 international and national research projects, collaborates with research and academical partners in Europe and other parts of the world, and takes part in the activities of international funds, programmes, and networks.

Arts are an integral part of the University academic activity. The research conducted in the University is related to the history, culture, and Art of East Prussia, Lithuania Minor (Prussian Lithuania), and the Klaipėda Region: it allows one to get to know the historical, linguistic, confessional, musical, and ethnical heritage and enables meaningful enhancement of its continuity opportunities.

Klaipėda University was founded in a geographical area unique from the economic, cultural, and geopolitical aspects, i.e. on the Lithuanian seaside, boasting the only port of Lithuania: at the national level, attempts are made to develop Klaipėda as a metropolitan centre and to increase the international competitiveness of Lithuania as a maritime state. Since 2008, Klaipėda University implements the State Programme of an Integrated Research, Study, and Business Centre Marine Valley for the Development of the Lithuanian Maritime Sector and thus consistently consolidates its leadership in the fields of marine sciences and technological innovations.
