Become a student representative of the European University of Technology at RTU!

Riga Technical University has joined forces with 7 other European higher education institutions to create a joint model of a European University of Technology (EUt+) within the next 3 years, which would be more competitive on an international level than any of the universities individually. More information on the EUt+ initiative is available in here.

Taking into account that the EUt+ development process will significantly affect all departments of RTU as well as the overall image of the university, it is crucial for the entire university, especially RTU students, to be involved in the process of creating a joint EUt+. RTU student representatives have to be ready to be actively involved in the work of EUt+, cooperate with students from other consortium universities, write and implement joint projects, participate in the decision-making process and meetings in all 8 EUt+ universities.

If you are ready to become a representative of EUt+, please fill in this form until September 20th.

If any questions arise, feel free to contact the International Projects Unit of RTU: rtuipu@gmail.com
