Students from sunny California like the University and Vilnius. “The VGTU campus alone is beautiful but the faculty and surrounding residents make it ten times better. Everyone is so friendly and the faculty seems very knowledgeable. The first few days have been great and it seems like it's only going to get better!“- says Nick Coburn, the student from CalPoly.
 
 
Julia De Hart, another summer school participant from California says: “Everyone at VGTU has been so welcoming and willing to show us around the city and experience the culture while making sure our academic experience to be also great.”
 
This year the international summer school classes on structural mechanics and training on mathematical modelling using MATLAB software are taught by Graham Archer from CalPoly and Gediminas Blaževičius from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at VGTU. Students will also have classes on theoretical and practical aspects of geodetic measurement taught by lecturers from the Faculty of Environmental Engineering Darius Popovas and Ignas Daugėla.
 
Students of “VGTU-CalPoly‘2017” international summer school will not only study, they will also have a rich and exciting cultural programme in order to learn more about the history of Lithuania.
