José Baptista, student number 100 000, joined Técnico this year. In order to mark this historic moment, the new student of Electrical and Computer Engineering met the President of Tecnico, professor Rogério Colaço, the Vice-president for Academic Affairs, professor Alexandre Francisco, and the Coordinator of the Academit Unit.
Electrical and Computer Engineering was José Baptista’s first choice course. He became interested in engineering only in the last year of secondary school, when he “was searching and comparing universities, I found out that Técnico always had good references”, he says. Born in Beja, the new Técnico student is aware of the challenges ahead: “a year of many changes and adaptation to university life, but above all it is a challenge and as such I must overcome it”.
