The Faculty of Engineering was established on 1 January 2007 by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania by merging the Vilnius Technical College with the Vilnius College of Construction and Design and establishing the Vilnius College of Technology and Design.

The origins of the Faculty of Technology date back to 1922, when the Technical School opened its doors next to the Žygimantas Augustas Gymnasium on the initiative of the Vilnius Technical Society.On 20 June 1926, the foundation stone of the current Faculty was laid. In the same year, the school graduated its first batch of mechanics and waterway technicians. In 1927, the Departments of Land Reclamation and Land Management were established, followed by the Electrical Engineering Department in 1930.

In 1939, when Lithuania regained the Vilnius region, the Technical School became a state technical school, in 1947 - a polytechnic, and from 1951 to 1960 - a Technical School of Agricultural Mechanisation, which trained agricultural mechanics.In 1952 a part-time department was established, and in 1961 - an evening department. In 1966, a student dormitory was built.

In 1989, the 20 000th technician diploma was awarded.

Since 1996, the school has participated in the PRAHE and, since 1998, in the Leonardo da Vinci programmes - the curricula, teaching methods and technical and laboratory equipment have been updated.

On 30 August 2002, the Higher Technical School was reorganised into Vilnius Technical College. Since 2002, studies have been carried out according to the non-university study programmes approved by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania. The College has earned due respect in Lithuania and abroad.
