Situated in the north-eastern city of Vila Real, Portugal, The University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (UTAD) became a Public University in 1986, although its history also includes a heritage received from its predecessor, the Vila Real Polytechnic Institute, created in 1973. This Institute took on a relevant role in the development of the region, and in September 1979, it was converted into the Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro Higher Education Institute. It was due to the intense activity in the fields of teaching and scientific and technological research that, less than ten years later, the Government granted its status as a qualified University.
The University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto includes four university schools and one polytechnic school:
Most of the University units are installed in an urban campus located in the city of Vila Real. The University also has a branch in the city of Chaves.
