Riga Technical University (RTU) was established in 1862 as a multi-discipline polytechnic higher educational establishment. It was devised following the model of the most advanced technical universities of that time – Zurich and Karlsruhe universities, and became a foundation that allowed Riga to develop into a remarkable industrial centre in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century.
RTU has sustained its role in the education system of Latvia. Nowadays, RTU is accredited, internationally recognised European university that implements academic and professional study programmes of advanced quality.
