Education of international level engineering professionals, through excellent Research and Development work, including the scientific, technical, ethical and cultural competences.
FEUP intends to be recognized as a national and international reference among engineering schools, both on training and research level, and considers the intellectual, scientific and technical potential of its human resources the main tool to achieve this goal.
FEUP graduate students must be competitive in the global labour market as well as agents of change in the entrepreneurial network. In that sense, besides a solid technical and scientific training, FEUP will work to provide students with a set of competences and values, particularly initiative skills, learning abilities and problem solving capacity, as well as intellectual integrity and sense of responsibility and solidarity, preparing them for professional success.
FEUP will be a privileged partner of other countries’ entities in R&D and an essential element to the development of the involving environment.
