85th Anniversary of Lithuanian University of Agriculture (LŽŪU)

University‘s (before 1994 m. – Academy‘s) origins go back to 3rd September 1924 when Lithuanian Agricultural Academy was established in Dotnuva. After the experienced growth of Lithuanian state in the interwar years and the Nazi Germany's occupation, in 1945 Academy moved to Kaunas. In 1946 new faculties were founded at the Academy – Agricultural Engineering and Water and Land Management, and in 1949 –Faculty of Economics and Management.
