Students completing this degree will acquire basic principles and skills in programming, information systems, systems and network management and web technologies as well as the ability to develop, alone or as part of a team, computer applications of a certain dimension, knowing how to make the appropriate choice of algorithms, languages, libraries and user interfaces.
The degree in its current form has evolved from its beginnings as the first, scientifically grounded university degree in this area and which has been operational for 25 years (since academic year 1985/86). Since then, many of the students holding degrees from FCUP have gone on to successful careers in Portugal and abroad, whether in companies or IT departments of private and public sector institutions, in industries such as banking, insurance, transport, electricity and telecommunications or in universities or research institutes.
