The School of Science and Technology (ECT) comprises the Engineering, Physics and Mathematics Departments. The ECT aims to create and disseminate knowledge in the fields of engineering, science and technology, and foster an interaction with the outside world, developing innovative services, technology and products that are fundamental to the progress of various sectors in the regional and national economy.
ECT’s priorities are to stimulate the intellectual and professional training of its students and to create, enhance and disseminate knowledge, based on human promotion and the qualification of the populations.
The teachers of the School, besides their academic activities, also undertake intense scientific activity, in the research centres based at UTAD and in other universities. Their R&D work and projects often receive considerable attention, whether in the fields of robotics, digital platforms, and technological innovation associated with mechanics and civil construction.
