feup: engineering beyond. 2009
feup: identity more than 80 years of history: Faculdade de Engenharia is the largest school of Universidade do Porto, and has significant autonomy; since 2000, feup has moved to a brand new campus, just outside the city centre, in eastern Porto, Portugal.
feup: identity we put our money where our knowledge is: a m² campus, with excellent infrastructures. The campus conveys a 8-floor library with 500 reading spots and work cabinets, 9 departments, 25 computer rooms equipped with 500 computers, among other facilities and class rooms;
feup: growth its all been worth it: with a total investment of 8 million in the last years feup has kept a steady pace towards excellence and innovation, namely: dozens of spin-offs, active or pending patent and brands, and R&D units which involve 80% of the faculty;
feup: performance knowledge is our business: feup has adapted its courses to Bologna and currently offers a solid project of graduate and postgraduate education : 3 undergraduate courses (1 st Cycle), 2 of which are in cooperation 9 integrated master in engineering (1 st + 2 nd Cyles) 8 MSc programmes (2 nd Cycle) 18 PhD programmes (3 rd Cycle)
and we mean it: our excellence is proven by the excellent rate of employment (nearly half of graduate students are recruited before even finishing their studies). feup: performance Results from 2008 Employment Survey
feup: performance thriving for a better world: feup firmly believes that knowledge enhances its power through its investment on research and development – our research clusters indicate a rich spectrum of focus areas: energy&environment, transports&communications, electronics&computing and health&life sciences, among others.
feup: performance building bridges, in and out: feup provides significant support to the community, especially in close cooperation with national industry; a wide range of services is offered, such as: software and prototypes development, expert consulting, technical and economic feasibility studies, chemical analysis and other laboratory support services. feup also holds, on campus, several international scientific events each year.

feup: feel good experience feup: studying in feup gives the opportunity to develop academic skills, to take your know how to a higher ground, but it also allows you to have a complete, diverse and rich life on campus, through sports, cultural and leisure activities.
feup: insight engineering 101: right from the start, our programs promote hands-on activities, multidisciplinary projects, where students can experience real engineering problems, develop an acute sense of responsibility and feel part of a team.
feup: going global mastering solutions: with eyes wide open to companies needs, feup offers postgraduate programmes that present innovative solutions, such as: : Innovation and Technological Entrepreneurship : Service Engineering and Management
