Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities

About us

The Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities is a unique example of successful synergy between engineering sciences and humanities. FETH has become the first faculty in the Baltics to implement a new educational concept, based on convergence between two contrasting fields of study. We believe that future knowledge is interdisciplinary; therefore, the interdisciplinary aspect is clearly manifested and integrated in every study course we offer. Our Faculty has always been deeply entwined with the European educational practices and values, and this makes us truly appreciate students' time and effort by organizing study proccess in a highly practical way.

Currently, FETH implements internationally accredited study programmes in technical translation, e-learning technologies and digital humanities.


 The Dean of the Faculty is a senior member of the academic administration at FETH, responsible for development of the Faculty.

Faculty Council

The Faculty Council consists of an elected body of members responsible for exercising faculty authority and co-operation with RTU administrative offices. The list of council members comprises not only honored professors and lecturers, but also representatives of the student council (at least 20%).

Academic Staff

Over one hundred people pursue teaching and research within the Faculty. Our academic staff members are constant and highly competent; they participate in various conferences and seminars both in Latvia and abroad; most of them continue their education at Doctoral study programmes, leveraging the interdisciplinary strengths of the Faculty. All FETH staff members are employed on a competitive basis, regulated by RTU Regulations «On the Procedure of Electing Assistant Professors, Lecturers and Assistants».

International Cooperation and Development

Internationalization is one of the top priorities at Riga Technical University (RTU). Our Faculty has strong ties with different educational and public organizations all over the world. We believe that ongoing global collaborations should be an integral part of FETH overarching philosophy of internationalism. The development of an international environment at FETH is our primary task, involving both studies and research.

Student Council

The aim of the Student Council is to give students an opportunity to develop organizational and communication skills by implementing various social activities and projects at FETH. In addition to organizational activities, the Student Council is the voice of the student community. They help students to share ideas, interests and concerns with other representatives of the Faculty.

Studies at FETH from a Historical Perspective

In 2015, the Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities was established by merging three structural units: the Institute of Applied Linguistics, the Institute of Humanities and Distance Education Study Centre.
