Riga Technical University (RTU) offers 1-2 week Summer School Courses

Europe and Latvia beckon! RTU has more than 20 years of experience in organising specialised courses and summer/winter schools. Every year RTU is increasingly updating its portfolio, developing its academic content, and looking for exciting and current topics for students to learn and develop new knowledge and skills that are in demand today during the summer schools. Courses and training programmes also put a strong emphasis on practical learning to give students as much added value as possible. It is important to note that, depending on the specifics of the summer school/training cycle, the percentage ofhands-on activities in the whole training cycle varies between 30 and 60%.

  1. In the summer of 2010, 5 summer schools are planned:
  • Nanophotonics: Close-Up for the Future;
  • Swarm Master: Drone Fleet Commander Bootcamp;
  • The NEXT | The Young Global Leaders Camp;
  • Time Capsule of Latvian Footprints;
  • Intensive English and Cross-Cultural Communication.

More detailed information about the summer schools can be found on the RTU website – https://www.rtu.lv/en/studies/short-term-studies/summer-schools. It’s important to note that the working language of the summer schools is English! Courses last between one and two weeks.

RTU is very keen to reach out to the younger generation of Latvians living abroad and give them a unique opportunity – to participate in a training programme and get to know Latvia at the same time. RTU Summer Schools include not only lectures and practical classes, but also cultural and entertainment/sports events, where participants discover our beautiful country.
