KSU Community speaks

Programme developer and lecturer, aviation expert Dr. Konstantinos Kalligiannis

The new generation needs to invest in education in the field of aviation, in order to fill highly specialized jobs in the industry and thereby contribute to the development of the country. The aviation industry plays a major role in the country’s social and economic growth: The aviation growth in the country promotes better communication across business centres throughout Europe, opens doors for investment, and creates new jobs. At Kazimieras Simonavičius University I have met highly professional, curious people who want to learn, develop their skills and contribute to the materialization of the Lithuanian air traffic forecasts. I believe that these students will continue to search for ways to excel.
