|I would like to start this brief presentation by giving you a warm welcome to the web page of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto – FCUP.
FCUP joined the initial core of Faculties of the University of Porto at the time of its creation in 1911 and still remains committed to exploring the opportunities for cooperation and collaboration not only with other entities within the UP, but also national or international entities.
Since it was established in 1911 FCUP has maintained its unique position in offering high quality training in the Exact Sciences, Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
Obviously during the course of its 100 years FCUP grew and developed, widening the scope of its competences to such diverse fields such as Geographical Engineering, Astronomy, Computer Science and Information Technology, Biochemistry, Landscape Architecture, Environmental Sciences and Agricultural Sciences.
FCUP is proud of its past 100 years, but is also committed to build a future of excellence and innovation, expanding its influence and intervention in the community where it is set.
The information provided in this webpage intends to illustrate the research and training abilities as well as the results of the scientific knowledge generated in FCUP.
