Student Organizations

In addition to the Associação dos Estudantes do IST (AEIST), Técnico students have been creating a vibrant community of student organizations, made up of students from all courses.

Some organizations are specific to the courses, others are transversal to any course and focused on project activities, entrepreneurship, culture or sport.

These cores promote a set of activities that complement your skills, to make your early career even more competitive for the job market.

To collaborate with the Student Organization teams, you can contact them directly through the contacts provided, or be aware of recruitment periods through their social networks.


To streamline and facilitate the creation of student organizations, the platform “Técnico Student Clubs” was developed, allowing, with low bureaucratic effort, small groups of students to form teams officially recognized by IST and to benefit from:

  • Resources, such as IST spaces and support for activities;
  • Recognition as “Técnico Students’ Club”.

From entrepreneurship to IT, you can create a club where your idea can go further!

Active clubs:


In order to proceed with the application, you must take into account the following points:

  • Proceed with filling out the form;
  • The club must be, with duly justified exceptions, composed exclusively of Técnico students;
  • The club must be formed by a minimum of 3 students;
  • The group may count on the collaboration of one or more Técnico professors.


There will be two admission periods for applications for new clubs:

Normal period:

  • Application submission: Until October 15, 2021
  • Analysis of applications and meetings with the NPE: From 15 to 12 November 2021
  • Publication of results: By November 12, 2021


Here you can find the Regulations for Técnico Student Clubs, where all the information necessary for the registration, proper functioning and fulfilment of rights and duties is detailed.
