Faculty of Civil and Mechanical Engineering

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Transport and AeronauticsActing Dean of the Faculty of Civil and Mechanical Engineering Līga Gaile

The Faculty educates and trains specialists in engineering, mechanical engineering and machine building, engineering design, construction of mechanisms and appliances, mechatronics, logistics, automotive and railway transportation technology, technical maintenance of aircrafts in mechanical engineering and avionics, medical engineering and physics, heat-power engineering and heat engineering, and nanoengineering, civil engineering, geodesy and cartography, as well as heat, gas, and water technology.

The curricula of the study programs implemented by the Faculty are coordinated with the industry associations, including the Association of Mechanical Engineering and Metalworking Industries of Latvia. Industry representatives participate in the development and improvement of all study programs, they also take part in the defense of graduation papers. This guarantees that the study programs correspond to the requirements of 21st century industry. 

Faculty graduates work in Latvia, EU countries, USA, Switzerland and other countries. The work of the alumni of the study program «Aviation Transport» has an even more global character: they receive a certificate of an aviation transport technical maintenance specialist, which attests that their competences and skills conform to general European requirements. The certificate is recognized in the international labor market.  In Latvia, mechanical engineering and metalworking industries are clearly export-oriented, on average about 70% of production volume is exported to more than 100 countries, thus the export market and the geography of faculty graduates’ activities is very wide.
