Overview

FACULTY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, TRANSPORT AND AERONAUTICS
Institute of Aeronautics (AERTI) is the respected successor of one of the oldest institutions in aviation, Riga Aviation University.

The Bachelor study programme provides fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of aviation through the use of laboratories, test benches and exercise equipment. The acquired knowledge and practical skills conform to the demands of European aviation companies.

The main fields of research at AERTI are technical diagnostics and non-destructive methods of control, research on composite materials used for aviation construction, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), engineering and design (i.e. CAD/CAE, 3D printing technologies, etc.), green energy (wind rotors, e-cars, etc).

KEY FEATURES Thirty specialised laboratories including laboratory of aeroplanes with gas turbine engine aerodynamics, structure and systems, helicopter aerodynamics,
Graduates from over ninety countries,
Strong focus on most topical subjects and practical methods.
