UTAD's motto is “Scientia et Labore Omnia Adipiscere”, which translates to “find science and toil”. This is in-keeping with the university's dedication to expanding scientific knowledge and developing technology in order “to respond to global, national and regional problems”.

Travel and Accommodation
Vila Real is a town in the northeast of Portugal, located in a hilly landscape, clinging to a headland far above the Corgo River. In the countryside, beyond the City limits, you can visit: the mountain ranges of the Alvão Natural Park, or Bisalhães, a village that produces black clay pottery awarded UNESCO immaterial cultural heritage or the eerie ruins of a Roman sacrificial altar in Santuário de Panóias.
