|Program Description:||Riga Technical University (RTU) is the main centre of teaching and research in the field of engineering science in Latvia, and the RTU Institute of Applied Linguistics has appropriate technical and methodological base, and experienced teaching staff for training technical translators with both office and research work skills. The teaching-staff of the RTU Institute of Applied Linguistics have accumulated significant experience in teaching scientific and technical language, and relevant terminology, as well as in improvement of technical text translation methodology.
The Bachelor and Master Professional Study Programmes “Technical Translation” provides training of technical translators in such fields as mechanical engineering, logistics, power engineering, material science, information technologies, telecommunications, civil engineering, architecture and town planning, engineering economics and others. The Master Professional Study Programme consolidates and expands students’ experience, knowledge and skills in field-specific technical translation acquired within the framework of the Professional Bachelor Study programme.
The concept of the study programme differs from similar translation study programmes in the Humanities. It has an additional emphasis on applied linguistics and covers activities which concern specific practical applications. Not only linguists, but also specialists in corresponding fields of technology as well as law, participate in the implementation of the study programme.
