At Riga Technical University (RTU), as of October 8, all lectures will be organized online, but engineering students are allowed to do so on-site laboratory work, but only in small groups and mandatory use of face masks.
Since the beginning of the autumn semester on September 14, additional safety measures have been introduced, even more stringent than national ones, and a significant part of the lectures have already been carried out online. However, due to the worsening of the epidemiological situation in the country, even stricter rules are being introduced, thus all lectures will be carried out online. RTU actively uses e-study environment that ensures access to study materials, online work and communication between students and academic staff members.
However, classes requiring presence, such as work in laboratories with special equipment, as well as practical work, are allowed on-site in small groups, taking the necessary precautions, as well as introducing mandatory use of face masks.
Student registration is carried out in the on-site classes and each faculty has a designated person responsible for Covid-19 issues who provides support to students and academic staff in Covid-19 related matters.
Special attention – epidemiological safety
Disinfectants are available in all RTU facilities and in addition disinfection is centrally carried out. Disinfectants for individual use are available in the study rooms and hallways.
