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. It is an essential aspect of the general university strategy. At present, we are the only faculty at RTU, where the number of foreign students far exceeds the number of local students, and the list of partner universities is growing at an ever increasing pace.
To ensure success of internationalization it is necessary to motivate academic staff and students of RTU, promoting their purposeful daily work. International achievements of RTU in studies and research are the best affirmation of their quality. Export of higher education in Latvia has become a noteworthy sector of the Latvian economy, and RTU plays the leading role in this sphere in Latvia. By co-operating with universities all around the world and educating and training undergraduate, post-graduate, and Doctoral students from more than 70 countries, RTU has developed the most comprehensive international university environment in Latvia.
