PORTUGAL: Polytechnic University
The Polytechnic University of Tomar is a relatively young institution. Its history dates back to the beginning of 1973, when it was created by a ministerial decree but it was only in 1982 that installation of the School of Technology was possible. In 1986, the first bachelor degrees were created and classes held in an old building in the centre of town using laboratories located in several spots around the city. Finally, in 1992 it moved to a new campus, over 10 hectares in size. On 1st January 1997, it obtained permanent independent establishment status, housing three schools: the School of Technology and the School of Management at Tomar and the School of Technology at Abrantes. The Polytechnic University comprises of two campuses: the main campus in Tomar and the Abrantes campus (in the city of Abrantes). Today, about 4500 members are integrated into our academic community: 4000 of them are students, 300 are teachers and 125 are technical and administrative staff.
