Currently there are five courses taught in English at the faculty, from undergraduate to PhD level. As well as the FCSIT, faculties at RTU range from Civil Engineering to Aeronautics.

The RTU scientific library was founded with the university, and is the oldest higher learning based library in Latvia. In 2006, the library was accredited as being of national importance, and currently contains over 1.9 million units of information.

As part of its international exchange programme RTU is a member of the Erasmus+ scheme for EU students. Subjects you wish to study at RTU must match with what is agreed on with the home university. Many of the courses at RTU will be taught in English.

My opinion of RTU is good. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement with the organization and the overall work completed with the staff. The university offers a good environment with diversity and an inviting campus.
