Academic Success Program

It aims to provide better academic integration of its students.

The program is implemented with the support of senior students (mentors) who, with their academic experiences, guide the new student, especially during the first year in IST.



  • Minimize the difficulties of adaptation, in the transition from high to superior education;
  • Contribute to the good academic performance of all 1st year students;
  • Support and integrate displaced students from different location of Portugal and abroad.


For this purpose, it was created a group study room (room 1-1, floor 1) that works exclusively for 1st year students, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The study groups can work autonomously or integrated in clearing periods of each teacher/course.
