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. RTU has been highly evaluated by the international experts within the Institutional Evaluation Programme carried out by the European University Association (EUA), who recognised in their report that strategically RTU is moving in the right direction on the way to becoming a modern university of the third generation.
RTU carries out research in the fields that are essential for the national economy of Latvia and educates and trains highly qualified specialists that are in great demand and competitive in the international labour market.
RTU Career Centre was established in October, 2007, to enable cooperation and communication between the university, students, graduates and companies as well as to assist student integration in the labour market and development of his/her career.
