Instituto Superior Técnico
IST provides top quality Higher Education and is deeply involved on Research, Development and Innovation Activities according to the highest international standards.
IST is the largest and most reputed school of Engineering, Science and Technology and Architecture in Portugal. Since its creation in 1911, IST is providing top quality higher education, as well as developing Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) activities according to the highest international standards.
IST offers a variety of educational programs (M.Sc and P.hD) that give the students the broad skills set need to pursue their goals, whether that means working as engineers, founding a company or embracing a research career. We help our students grow as creative thinkers and leaders.
Research at IST is organized in centres/institutes that pursue challenging research programs and address problems with a strong societal impact. These areas are often intertwined together and many centres work in multiple areas, crossing domains of competence and application. Research programs range from long-term initiatives to more applied research with the involvement of industry.
As part of its strategic policy, IST is actively involved in several networks and international programmes to promote student mobility, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as internships for participating in IST’s research activities.
