Campus 2 Expansion - Fulfill the vision for the future


Campus 2 presentation of the project took place on May 25.

The Campus 2 Auditorium was too small to host a community of students and teachers to know the project of expansion and requalification of the Campus 2 facilities.

This project, which follows the approval of the 2014 Strategic Plan, includes, among other objectives, the reorganization of the P.PORTO Educational Offer, in order to make explicit the two new clusters in the field of Hospitality and Tourism, and in the field of Media Arts and Design, all with their own school space.

The expansion and requalification of Campus 2, to be carried out with it’s own funds in the order of 2 million euros, is an ambitious project, which will equip the two schools with adequate infrastructures to learn in a real-life context. The School of Hospitality and Tourism will be equipped with theoretical rooms, kitchens, microbiology and physicochemical laboratories, restaurant and bar application, among other structures. The School of Media Arts and Design will be endowed with structures dedicated to theoretical and practical activities, as well as a building designed to accommodate large technical spaces such as Television and Photography studios and a Black Box.

"With this we leave a solid anchor for the future", declares Rosário Gambôa, President of the Politécnico do Porto. The presentation was also attended by the President of the ESMAD Installing Commission, Olívia Silva, the President of the ESHT Installing Commission, Flávio Ferreira, and the Mayor of Póvoa de Varzim, Aires Pereira. The Secretary of State for Science, Technology and Higher Education, Maria Fernanda Rollo, closed the event.


"The journey here is stimulating. We want to train people in these areas", highlights the Secretary of State, taking the opportunity to congratulate the "new house, which is an invaluable contribution to the country and an explosive combination of vision for the future".
