Welcome to the Department of Economics, Management, Industrial Engineering and Tourism (DEGEIT)

The Department of Economics, Management, Industrial Engineering and Tourism or known in Portuguese as Departamento de Economia, Gestão, Engenharia Industrial e Turismo (DEGEIT) is one of the premier departments of the University of Aveiro, a world-class and highly reputable public institution of higher learning. DEGEIT offers graduate and postgraduate courses in the fields of economics, management, industrial engineering and tourism.

The department’s existence can be traced back in 1988 when the Centre of Management Sciences and Financial Engineering (NCGEF) was founded. NCGEF was then changed to SAGEI or Autonomous Section of Management and Industrial Engineering. During this time, two degrees were launched, namely: Industrial Engineering & Management and Tourism, that paved way to its foundation as a separate unit.
In 1997, the Economics degree was offered and in 2001, the Management degree was added. SAGEI was renamed as DEGEI (Department of Economics, Management and Industrial Engineering) and in 2015, the department was given formal designation as DEGEIT, having all courses represented under its name. Through the years, additional courses have been added. Currently, DEGEIT is the University’s largest department with more than 1,400 students enrolled in various programmes and levels. This is equivalent to 1096.7 AETIs.
