At the Leading Edge of Research
Research expertise, as well as excellent resources and facilities, all contribute to the faculty's reputation as a renowned research institute, both nationally and internationally.
At the FPMs, applied research is characterised by innovation and industrial implementation. This reputation, associated with a proven track record of working with businesses of all sizes and from many sectors, has made the FPMs an ideal focal point for establishing research partnerships.
Research investments have led to the creation of several Research Centres located next to the University, namely Multitel (specialising in telecommunications, multimedia and signal processing), Materia Nova (specialising in new materials), INISMA (specialising in ceramic materials) and CETIC (specialising in software engineering and electronic systems).
