Daugavpils Construction Technical School (DCTS) is the largest educational institution to train construction specialists in the Latgale Region and one of the largest construction schools in Latvia. DCTS implements general, vocational, continued, in-service training and non-formal education programmes as well as assesses the competencies acquired outside the formal education setting.

As of now, the school implements 23 accredited vocational education programmes. Five of them are implemented at the branch site “Dagda”, one at the branch site “Ludza” and two at the branch site “Višķi”. In the academic year 2020/2021, the school had more than 1300 students and more than 130 qualified teachers.

DCTS has six departments: Construction Department, Heat, Gas and Water Technology Department, Metalworking and Mechanical Engineering Department, Architecture and Design Department, Catering Services Department and Agricultural Department.

DCTS prepares highly qualified specialists who can work independently, responsibly, creatively and properly, joining the ranks of competitive labour force in domestic and international labour markets. DCTS encourages graduates from vocational education institutions to continue on the path of self-improvement and expand their professional competences in tertiary education institutions.

Besides their chosen specialisation, our students can develop creatively and physically in a number of hobby groups and sports sections. They can use the school gym, play football, basketball, floorball, table tennis, badminton and darts, work on general fitness and lift weights. Students can express their creativity by singing in the school’s band “Builder” or dancing in the dance group. They can also join the hobby group “Festival Design”, improve their Latvian language skills or become members of the young intellectuals’ hobby group “Erudite”. 


DCTS has been providing the country with construction specialists for more than 50 years.
