The Technical University of Lisbon (UTL – Portuguese: Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, pronounced: [univɨɾsiˈdad(ɨ) ˈtɛknikɐ dɨ liʒˈboɐ]) is a Portuguese public university. It was created in 1930 in Lisbon, as a confederation of older schools, and comprises, nowadays, the faculties and institutes of veterinary medicine; agricultural sciences; economics and business administration; engineering, social and political sciences; architecture; and human kinetics.
Despite being one of the largest Portuguese state universities, the UTL has always adopted a decentralised organisational model. All faculties and institutes have an ample degree of autonomy in pedagogic, scientific, administrative and financial matters.
The faculties offer all levels of academic degrees in a wide range of fields, ranging from veterinary medicine to agricultural sciences to engineering to political science to sporting management.
