PT - Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (P38)

The teaching of Engineering in Portugal had its origins in the early Nautical School (Aula Náutica), by decree of 30 July 1765. The city of Porto was an important shipping and trade centre, and the mercantile spirit of its inhabitants was early developed. However, those were very troubled times: trade was being adversely affected by pirates hiding along the shores of North Africa who plundered ships carrying goods.
