The School of Engineering of the University of Minho (EEUM) celebrated its 47th anniversary last October 6th, in the main auditorium of the Azurém campus, in Guimarães.

The programme included interventions by the rector of UMinho, Rui Vieira de Castro, and the president of EEUM, Pedro Arezes, along with the lecture “Who are we talking about when we talk about sustainability”, by full professor João Pedro Matos Fernandes.
