40 Years of the Polytechnic of Coimbra.
In reality it is many more of quality teaching and service in empowering people and businesses.
The longevity of the schools of the Polytechnic of Coimbra, with many more years of activity, is a story that makes us proud and gives us guarantees of a promising future.
Everything we have done in each room, in each laboratory and in each school, everything each of us has done for more knowledge, for more people trained, for more competence, is a sign of our strength and of our ability to raise the dreams of those who come to us.
But history will remember the greatness of what we do together, of what we do among the internal community, of what we do with our partners in the Coimbra region, but also of what we do with those spread around the world who work with us and produce knowledge.
With this work we mark the joint path, the one that unites us and guarantees us the greatness of being one of the great institutions of higher education and science in Portugal and in Lusophony. With this work we celebrate the strength we have and the wisdom with which we exercise it, building the future. We recognize the work of all towards the construction of a bigger institution, of a more competent and attractive region, of a country that wants to be recognized for its role in a better world, more technological but more human, where science, technology, solidarity and personal life meet in the right dose.
The Polytechnic of Coimbra wants to do all this with people and for people, because with them we will build the Polytechnic University of Coimbra.
