Organization profile

Profile Information

The Department of Geography and Regional Planning (DGPR) started the activity in 1980, on the initiative of Professor Doutor Raquel Soeiro de Brito, with the creation of the first degree in Portugal in which Geography was associated with Planning.

The first graduates graduated in 1984 and the first Masters in Land Management in the year 1992.

The DGPR is a national reference in the areas of Geography, Planning and Spatial Planning, Environment, Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing.

We are characterized by scientific rigor and proximity to those who seek and choose us.

In the last 30 years, more than a thousand graduates and almost two hundred masters and doctors have been trained at the DGPR in various public and private organizations, both in Portugal and abroad, namely in central, regional and local government departments and local, in companies, in research centers and in education (university and in primary and secondary schools).
