ISEC - Coimbra Institute of Engineering (Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Coimbra) is increasing the international relations with other European universities within Erasmus+ Program. This work is conducted toward student’s and teacher’s mobility as well.

By choosing a host institution you’re exercising the option for the best way capable of giving continuity to your personal project. ISEC offers a very large choice of learning opportunities covering a multiplicity of engineering areas. 
The main language of instruction at ISEC is Portuguese. However, in special situations, when the number of foreign students justifies it and there is availability of resources, a class taught in English can be created. Some of the courses may have tutorial support in English, out of classes.
