Instituto Superior Técnico is the school of Science, Technology, and Engineering of the University of Lisbon and the largest engineering school in Portugal, and it has been involved for a long time in research and education activities in offshore renewable energy. Instituto Superior Técnico (IST/UL) is a member of EUREC since 2011 and part of EUREC Master since 2012.
The University of Lisbon is ranked among the top 10 universities in the area of marine/ocean engineering according to the Shanghai Ranking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2020.
Ocean energy research within IST/UL has been carried at the IDMEC, MARETEC, and CENTEC research centres, in close connection with the Department of Mechanical Engineering and WavEC Offshore Renewables, an independent association involving several companies, R&D institutions, and IST/UL.
Current research activities involve wave energy, floating offshore wind energy, marine tidal currents, and multipurpose offshore platforms powered by renewable energy sources. IST/UL has more than three decades of experience in offshore renewable energy and counts on a qualified and experienced teaching body. The participation of IST/UL in important offshore renewable energy European projects provides a unique set of experience and knowledge that creates differentiated teaching and learning conditions for the EUREC master’s students.
