Kaunas University of Technology: “Agacad’s training transformed our collective understanding of BIM.”

Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) turned to Agacad for an innovative training program. The goal? Transform 25 faculty members into a team of BIM experts ready to conduct integrated design projects and to more effectively teach BIM principles and practices to students at all levels.


At the top of KTU’s Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture’s list of priorities were integrating BIM into all study programs, exposing students to state-of-the-art technology, involving private companies in the learning process, and promoting close cooperation between architects and engineers.


KTU sought the help of an industry leader to boost its lecturers’ capacities in order to achieve these strategic objectives. Ultimately, it selected Agacad.

Kaunas University of Technology

KTU is one the largest technical universities in the Baltics. Founded in Kaunas, Lithuania, in 1922, it is known for its business links, research leadership, and interdisciplinary programs. KTU has more than 10,000 students in 149 study programs in 9 faculties.

Agacad's Autodesk® Authorized Training Center – one of the first to be established in Europe, back in 1988 – designed and delivered an innovative 6-month BIM training program for 25 lecturers in KTU’s Civil Engineering and Architecture Faculty. The program wrapped up in January 2016. During the training sessions, held once or twice a week, the faculty members learned to use BIM software for integrated design, work as a team, and more effectively manage change. Putting their new know-how into practice, together they created detailed models for small and large real projects.

The training gave KTU a competitive advantage as the home of the country’s first university BIM team. “There is no other teaching team that has such experience working all together on projects, using integrated software, and applying all the working principles of BIM in real life,” stated Darius Pupeikis, Vice-Dean for Studies at KTU.


“Agacad’s training transformed our collective understanding of BIM and gave professors valuable ideas for how to teach BIM at a university,” he added.

KTU lecturers praised the program for its dynamic combination of theory and practice, saying it opened their eyes to the tremendous possibilities BIM offers and how it is changing the very principles of design. Even more importantly, they said, it also gave them hands-on experience – something that is invaluable both for them and for their students.
