The University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro, a public entity, was born, with such status, in 1986, although in its history also credits a valuable inheritance harvested at the Polytechnic Institute of Vila Real, which in 1973 was created in this city.

According to its statutes, this University, whose fundamental objectives are Teaching Research, Extension and Support to the Community, should constitute a Center of Excellence for the permanent education and for the creation, transmission and diffusion of culture, science and technology.

The flexibility of UTAD, demonstrated by its ability to adapt to new situations, reconciling the available means with the modernity of teaching and being able to propose new forms of learning and scientific transmission, is irrefutable proof of its vitality that puts its knowledge competences at the service of the Community.
