The FCT is located in Monte de Caparica, a university campus with an area of 30 hectares, with the capacity to extend up to 60 hectares. Created in 1977, FCT is today one of the most prestigious public Portuguese schools in engineering and science education, with nearly 7,500 students, of which about 1,400 are postgraduate students (master’s or doctorate).

Since its creation, the FCT/UNL gave priority to the promotion of research in its areas of activity. Currently, the FCT/UNL hosts 16 research centers recognized by the Foundation for Science and Technology (of which 3 classified as “excellent” and 6 as “very good”) as well as 2 Research Center Poles (both classified as “very good”).

The academic quality of the FCT/UNL is very well considered in the business sector and it has been very successful in the job placement of its graduates in the labor market, as is the case with the accreditation of its engineering courses at the College of Engineers.
The scientific production of the FCT/UNL includes a high number of publications in high-impact international journals.
