The Technical University of Lisbon (UTLPortuguese: Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, pronounced: [univɨɾsiˈdad(ɨ) ˈtɛknikɐ dɨ liʒˈboɐ]) was a Portuguese public university. It was created in 1930 in Lisbon, as a confederation of older schools, and comprises, nowadays, the faculties and institutes of veterinary medicine; agricultural sciences; economics and business administration; engineering, social and political sciences; architecture; and human kinetics.

Despite being one of the largest Portuguese state universities, the UTL has always adopted a decentralised organisational model. All faculties and institutes have an ample degree of autonomy in pedagogic, scientific, administrative and financial matters.


  • Veterinary Medicine: FMV - Faculdade de Medicina Veterinária
  • Agricultural Sciences: ISA - Instituto Superior de Agronomia
  • Economics and Business Management: ISEG - Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão
  • Engineering, Science and Technology: IST - Instituto Superior Técnico
  • Social and Political Sciences: ISCSP - Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Políticas
  • Human Kinetics: FMH - Faculdade de Motricidade Humana
  • Architecture: FA - Faculdade de Arquitectura

The faculties offer all levels of academic degrees in a wide range of fields, ranging from veterinary medicine to agricultural sciences to engineering to political science to sporting management.
