The RTU SP unites Student Councils from all faculties and Study and Science Centres, meaning that every Council member is also an RTU SP member. The RTU SP represents students in decision-making institutions, improves the quality of studies, popularises science amongst students, suggests improvements in RTU infrastructure and organises a wide variety of events.
