Dean of the Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities Associate Professor Dr. philol. Marina Platonova:
Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities is a unique example of successful synergy between engineering sciences and humanities; there are not many of this kind in Europe. Only a few European universities have similar experience, for example, the University of Manchester in the UK and Chemnitz Technical University in Germany, which offer students the opportunity to study technical disciplines simultaneously with humanities.
Future knowledge is interdisciplinary and studies at the Faculty of E-Learning Technologies and Humanities have high added value because the interdisciplinary aspect is integrated in every study course. It is an interesting synergy.
Interdisciplinary aspect is also clearly manifested within Doctoral studies, as a future researcher can develop one’s Doctoral Thesis under supervision of two scientific advisers – a linguist and a technical discipline specialist.
We are the only educational institution in Latvia that implements the study program in technical translation. We are also the only RTU faculty where the number of international students exceeds the number of local students.
