The beginning of Department of Geotechnical Engineering is 1940, when the Department of Engineering Geology was founded at Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas. After reforms of year 1950 the Department moved to Kaunas Politechnical Institute. At 1970 the Department of Engineering Geology was renamed by Department of Soils and Foundations and moved to Vilnius Civil Engineering Institute – VISI (later renamed by Vilnius Gediminas Technical University – VGTU) in Vilnius. Since 1992 the Department is renamed by Department of Geotechnical Engineering of VGTU.
At 1968 the laboratory of Soils and foundations as held. In 1971 it also moved to VISI, since 1992 renamed by Research Laboratory of Geotechnical Engineering.
Heads of Department: prof. Mykolas Kaveckis (1950-1968), prof. Jonas Šimkus (1968-1980), prof. habil. dr. Antanas Alikonis (1980-1996), assoc. prof.  dr. Vincentas Vytis Stragys (1996-2007), prof. dr. Arnoldas Norkus since 2007.
