Aerospace Systems Engineering
Latvia has joined the European Space Agency and the space industry is growing strongly. RTU is a member of the European Space Agency’s ESA_LAB initiative since 2021. Following the development of the industry and forecasting the development of high-added value jobs in the aerospace industry, RTU MTAF AERTI took a logical step in further development and prepared the first Master’s program in aerospace in Latvia. The academic Master’s degree program “Aerospace Systems Engineering” corresponds to EKI and LKI level 7.
The program has evolved from the Transport Systems Engineering program and retains the option to choose a separate course block for the base courses of the new program, allowing specialization in the still promising field of transport organization and provision, where the proper maintenance of the transport system and the intelligent, science-based management of transport operation processes will play an increasingly important role.
The Master’s degree aims to train highly qualified specialists in aerospace systems with in- depth knowledge of the field, who have systemic and analytical thinking and independent working skills, as well as to prepare students for further studies at the doctoral level.
The Academic Master’s degree program “Aviation Transport” corresponds to EQF and LQF level 7 and is therefore aimed at graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or equivalent. The program provides in-depth theoretical knowledge in the field of aviation transport, develops students’ research skills, and prepares analysts and managers of aviation transport maintenance and related processes to solve various problems and make decisions in today’s changing environment. The program is oriented toward the preparation of middle and senior-level industry managers.
The study program aims to prepare high-quality specialists in demand in the aviation industry, with in-depth knowledge of the industry, who have systemic and analytical thinking and independent working skills, as well as to prepare students for further studies at the doctoral level.
