Admission - 2nd cycle of studies admission - 2022/2023

Available courses

Master

Description

Note: Provisional information. Approval pending.

From the academic year 2021/2022 onward, the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto extended its offer of 2nd cycle studies with nine additional masters, which result from the adaptation of integrated masters pursuant to Decree-Law No. 65/2018, of 16th August.

For information purposes only, we distinguish the 2nd cycle studies between Stand-alone Masters and Continuity Masters (the ones resulting from the above-mentioned adaptation of Integrated Masters), since there are some differences in terms of applicants, ranking criteria and documents required.

Therefore, depending on the master(s) (2nd cycle studies) you wish to apply for, you should carefully read the information below regarding Stand-alone Masters and/or Continuity Masters.


Tuition fees:

Information on tuition fees for 2022/2023 available here.
