One of the most important sources of citizens’ well-being is manufacturing therefore arrival of new specialists at producing industries is an important pre-condition for the country’s sustainability. These are highly qualified specialists who apply their knowledge and skills in inventing various devices and mechanisms for the improvement of production technologies as well as build houses, connect the banks of rivers, solve specific engineering communication issues making the environment more comfortable and functional. The higher education has a significant role in providing the necessary knowledge, educating knowledgeable and capable engineers in various spheres of economy, integrating modern production technologies in the study process, promoting competitiveness of engineers in the local and international market.

Faculty of Engineering welcomes students who are keen on technologies, innovations and education. After graduating the University they will have good knowledge in agricultural production and production processing modern technologies, autotransport and energy usage, educational aspects, as well as in designing and manufacturing of advanced technical machinery. The graduates of the faculty are highly demanded specialists for the national economy. The study process is conducted in up-to-date training laboratories in the supervision of professional teaching staff and guest lecturers using traditional as well as modern and even avan-garde teaching methods and study materials. So called "Mehu dienas" organized each year by the faculty’s student self-government and supported by faculty’s graduates are very well attended and broadly recognized in Latvia.
