A look into our history
Coimbra Agriculture School (Escola Superior Agrária de Coimbra, ESAC-IPC) was established in Coimbra in 1887 and is the most ancient agriculture school in Portugal. Originally named Central School of Agriculture, was renamed several times throughout the years. In 1979 was named the current denomination and in 1985 was integrated into the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (IPC).
Coimbra Agriculture Schoo is an institution with history that looks into the future. The facilities and equipment are adjusted to modern times and we offer bachelor (level 6) and master programmes (level 7) on agriculture, biotechnology, environmental technology and management, food engineering and technology, forest sciences, ecotourism and veterinary nursing.
