ULisboa School Shanghai University: 1st visit to Técnico Lisboa

We are thrilled to announce a momentous occasion as we welcome our colleagues from the University of Shanghai to the heart of Lisbon at the Instituto Superior Técnico and at the Rectory of ULisboa! On September 25, 2023, representatives from both universities engaged in productive discussions. This visit marks a significant milestone in the enduring partnership between the University of Lisbon (ULisboa) and Shanghai University (SHU). 

In September 2021, top representatives from both institutions officially inked an agreement that laid the foundation for the ULisboa School, Shanghai University.  This collaboration was swiftly recognized and endorsed by the authorities in both Portugal and China, a testament to its strength and potential.

Fast forward to 2022, the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES) in Portugal granted accreditation to the study cycles, reinforcing the commitment to excellence.  Subsequently, the Chinese Ministry of Education gave its stamp of approval, validating this groundbreaking partnership.

In its inaugural phase, the ULisboa School at SHU is offering a range of bachelor’s and master’s degree programs primarily focused on the field of engineering.

Bachelor’s degrees include:

  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering.

Master’s degrees encompass:

  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering.

These programs represent a remarkable collaboration between Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) at ULisboa and SHU.

Electrical and Computer Engineering and Civil Engineering programs are spearheaded by IST. Environmental Engineering programs are jointly offered by IST Técnico Lisboa (IST), the School of Agriculture (ISA), and the Faculty of Sciences (FC). This partnership also extends its reach to institutions like the Lisbon School of Economics & Management (ISEG) and the School of Arts and Humanities (FL).

But that’s not all! In addition to bachelor’s and master’s programs, this partnership will open up exciting avenues for doctoral collaboration by linking existing doctoral programs at both ULisboa and SHU. The scope of cooperation also extends to cutting-edge research initiatives.

The ULisboa School of Shanghai University finds its home on the picturesque SHU campus, where the application and enrollment procedures take place. It’s a hub of innovation, culture, and academic excellence.

Stay tuned as we embark on this incredible journey of academic collaboration, innovation, and global exploration with our esteemed partners from Shanghai University!
