New Students


A new stage stage of your life starts now and it will undoubtedly be one of the most unforgettable. You will learn, evolve and meet many new people, in this centenary School, with its eyes set on the next hundred years.

We are the Student Support Unit (NAPE) and our mission is to support you from the moment you are still a candidate to Técnico until you finish your time here with us. On your first day at Técnico, you will meet us and your Mentors, colleagues of your course who will help you through Day 1. With our Mentoring Programme, we wish to ease your integration in Técnico. Later, you will be able to participate in various activities that we develop, such as the Orientation Week, or workshops.

In case you feel lost or have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us! We are available every working day at our reception desk in the Main Building and available both by phone and e-mail. We are sure we will be able to help you!
