Lisbon School of Engineering - Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL) - is a project that goes back to 1852. It began with the creation of the Industrial Institute of Lisbon, which became the Higher Institute of Engineering of Lisbon in December 1974, and, in October 1988, was integrated into the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon (Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa - IPL). A journey that started with just nine subjects now offers 12 bachelor courses (the latest of which are to be launched in the 2021/22 school year), 11 masters courses (one of which is also to debut in 2021/22), involving intense research, development and innovation, and an unbreakable connection with society and with the business and industrial sectors.
Lisbon School of Engineering distinguishes itself by its commitment to ever-evolving quality education. Priority is given to the practical and experimental teaching component, which provides a more motivating learning experience and a training approach more in tune with the reality that lies beyond academia. Equally striking are the connections to the business world, apparent in numerous partnerships, both in the sphere of R&D projects and in the very development of our training offer. Ever true to its mission – studying, teaching, researching, and providing services in the Engineering field – Lisbon School of Engineering distinguishes itself as a center of creation, transmission and dissemination of science, technology, and culture, contributing to its quality and innovation. Aware of the world we live in, Lisbon School of Engineering finds itself fully committed to set a new structural element: sustainability.
Lisbon School of Engineering is the oldest engineering school in Portugal. But more than 160 years of existence does not mean that the school is stuck in the past. It is always looking ahead, with engineering courses that never go out of fashion, like Civil, Chemical, Electrotechnical, Electronic, or Mechanical engineering, alongside increasingly sought-after and successful areas such as Biomedicine, Biochemistry, Renewable Energy, and Multimedia, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The recently launched undergraduate courses in Mathematics Applied to Technology and Enterprise, and Municipal Management Technologies have further strengthened ISEL's connection to business, industry, and society. What they all have in common is a remarkable employability rate.
Lisbon School of Engineering is a place where the student environment and the relationship between students and teachers is unique, and where teaching is recognized as eminently practical. For that very reason, it is uniquely valued by the job market. The school provides classrooms, auditoriums, and labs (in constant modernization), a library, spaces for study and leisure, a canteen and cafeterias, multi-sport facilities, in addition to a games room, and a student residence.
