Técnico at Futurália

The largest Education, Training and Employability Fair in Portugal is currently ongoing and aims to clarify the doubts of students regarding their future, at academic and professional level.

Técnico stand at Futurália is drawing the attention of hundreds of students who want to know more about their future and the opportunities they can find at Técnico. The largest Education, Training and Employability Fair in Portugal is running since March 29 at FIL, Parque das Nações.

According to João Martins, a 17-year-old student, who is applying to Técnico: “I would really like to enter Mechanical Engineering at Técnico. My parents met there and I have the best references about the school”.

Everyone who visits Técnico stand is convinced that Técnico will become part of their choices. “I would really like to enter Aerospace Engineering. If I fail in my first attempt I will try other strategies, but I will surely enter Técnico next year”, says Madalena Ferreira, another student who was interested to learn more about Técnico.

Técnico students from NAPE – Student Support Unit at Técnico are representing Técnico at Futurália. Inês Dias, one of these students, explains that “young people come here full of doubts, but they are very interested. This fair is very important to clarify their doubts, help them to understand in which course they fit better and to give more information about Técnico”.

More than 80 000 people are expected at this 10th edition, which runs until April 1. Students, professors and families take this opportunity to compare the curricular offer and to deepen knowledge about the academic areas and the institutions. Besides Técnico, several national and international institutions are participating at Futurália.
