The international group of experts has assessed the academic Master and Doctoral study programs as excellent and the academic Bachelor study program as good. This fact attests to the competitiveness of these programs on both local and international scale, as potential foreign students are offered these programs in English.

The study programmes «Environmental Engineering» of all three levels have been developed, licenced and tested by the FEEE Institute of Environment and Energy Systems within the framework of the European Social Fund project «Reducing Fragmentation of Study Programs at Riga Technical University and Strengthening Resource Sharing».

These programs have been developed by adapting to the modern reality. Prior to this, programs in environmental sciences focused on power engineering. However, with the development of understanding about nature, it has become clear that the concept of environmental engineering is wider – it is a science regarding the use of natural resources in production of energy, reasons for contamination of natural resources, usage of land resources.

Students of the program obtain the science-focused education. During the study process, different skills are developed, for example, collaboration of students and teamwork, creativity, ability to solve different issues related to environment and power engineering, as well as individuality of students and, already starting from the beginning of studies, integration of knowledge in the solution of industry problems. Still, the most important is that academic staff try to teach students how to create innovations.

No matter what levels of the study programs «Environmental Engineering» are completed by students, they will obtain the very much required knowledge on how to save nature and use its resources carefully by using technological solutions offered by engineering sciences.

The study programmes «Environmental Engineering» have been developed, licenced, tested and assessed within the framework of the European Social Fund project No. 8.2.1.0/18/A/013 «Reducing Fragmentation of Study Programs at Riga Technical University and Strengthening Resource Sharing».
