Technical University of Lisbon

The Technical University of Lisbon (UTL) was created in 1930, as the result of the union of older schools. Nowadays, it comprises seven different faculties and institutes, in many different areas. Around 20,000 undergraduate students and 3500 postgraduate students currently attend the seven Schools of the UTL. Despite being one of the largest Portuguese state universities, the UTL has always adopted a decentralised organisational model,  giving all faculties and institutes an ample degree of autonomy in pedagogic, scientific, administrative and financial matters.


UTL schools have their own management bodiesmeaning that their management structure is organised by departments or speciality areas. All UTL schools run specialist centres, institutes, units or other bodies dedicated to research, cooperation, international relations, business links and the labour market.
