The Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa, FCTUNL or FCT for short, is a Portuguese faculty of the New University of Lisbon located on the Caparica Campus, near Lisbon.

The Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa operates with great autonomy and awards degrees in several engineering and natural sciences specializations.

FCT pioneered in offering the first strictly computer science degree in Portugal [1] and is still one of the best in this and other fields of the so-called "new engineerings".

Its alumni have a great employability index. [1]

The Director is Fernando Santana.

The mascot is Estrôncia the Duck.


This faculty is divided in several departments, each one responsible for teaching the classes relative to its specific area. The majority of classes are meant for the degrees supplied by the department, but there are a few classes that are common to all degrees (for instance math classes) which are taught to all students.
