Who we are

The Civil Engineering Department of Porto University School of Engineering as a highly qualified group of professionals (teachers and researchers), in which highlights the large numbers of PhD’s, many of them performed in foreign universities. This staff may directly contribute to a significant improvement in the construction sector, namely through a strictest link with the industry. The element that assures and promotes this link is the IC – Instituto da Construção, a nonprofit scientific and technical association, established in 1989.

Structured to support the construction industry, IC also has had very positive effects for the University, by establishing direct links between them and its surrounding environment.
