The Technical University of Lisbon ("UTL" – "Universidade Técnica de Lisboa", pron. IPA2|univɨɾsi'dad(ɨ) 'tɛknikɐ dɨ liʒ'boɐ) is a Portuguese public university. It was created in 1930 in Lisbon, as a confederation of older schools, and comprises, nowadays, the faculties and institutes of veterinary medicine; agricultural sciences; economics and business administration; engineering, social and political sciences; architecture; and human kinetics.

Despite being one of the largest Portuguese state universities, the UTL has always adopted a decentralised organisational model. All faculties and institutes have an ample degree of autonomy in pedagogic, scientific, administrative and financial matters.
