The Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL) is a Portuguese higher education polytechnic institution of engineering. Headquartered in Lisbon, it belongs to the Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa.

History[edit]

Its origins backs to the creation of the Industrial Institute of Lisbon (Instituto Industrial de Lisboa) in 1852, which evolved to the IST - Instituto Superior Técnico (since 1911 a university engineering institution later incorporated into the Technical University of Lisbon). The Instituto Industrial de Lisboa was refounded in 1918 as a technical school of vocational education in order to train technicians for the industry, and remained as an industrial school of non-higher education until the 1970s. In 1974, the institute was upgraded to a higher education institute of technical engineering awarding short cycle degrees in a number of engineering-related fields.

Before 1974 and the approval of decree Decreto-Lei 830/74 of 31 December 1974, this current polytechnic school, was not a higher education institution. It was an industrial school of vocational education until 1974, the Instituto Industrial de Lisboa.

In 1988, ISEL was integrated into the Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa, a state-run confederation of polytechnic higher education schools based in Lisbon.
