The Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC) presents one of the most extensive and diversified university training offerings in the country, including four dozen bachelor's and master's degrees and more than two dozen doctorates. The quality of this offer is supported by an intense research activity in all areas of knowledge that it cultivates, which include Architecture, Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry.
The FCTUC is, therefore, an active participant in the creation of knowledge, fundamental and applied. The research activity is framed through several R&D units, evaluated by international panels, as well as, numerous national and European research projects. The FCTUC also values the transfer of knowledge to society, based on a high number of contracts with external entities, as well as the active participation in the birth of new companies.
