Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Alameda de Santo António dos Capuchos 1, 1169-047 Lisboa, Portugal, Lisbon
3.65 / 5 based on 24 reviews.
Description:
The Technical University of Lisbon (UTL) was created in 1930, as a confederation of older Faculties, and comprises, nowadays, those of Veterinary Medicine; Agricultural Sciences; Economics and Business Administration; Engineering, Social and Political Sciences; Architecture; and Human Kinetics. Despite being one of the largest Portuguese State Universities, the UTL has always adopted a decentralised organisational model. All Faculties have an ample degree of autonomy in pedagogic, scientific, administrative and financial matters. Read more
