Besides excellent working conditions, the Department of Mathematics offers good opportunities for students to fully integrate them in the university's academic life.
This integration is carried through their representatives in the
Department Council, one of the directory boards of the Department.
There are many opportunities for students to participate in several of
the math awareness activities in which the staff of the
Department is involved. There are regular Conferences and Colloquiums
for students aiming to introduce them to research activities
and problems. Finally, there are several activities organized by groups of students: NEMATEG, Núcleo de Estudantes de Matemática e Engenharia Geográfica of the Associação Académica de Coimbra.
The Department of Mathematics runs its own Career Service promoting the integration of its graduates in the job market. Within this Carees Service, young mathematicians who graduated in the University of Coimbra have found job positions in the software industry, banking system, insurance companies, telecommunications, health sector, pharmaceutical industry, among others.
The University of Coimbra maintains a support service to students and former students (currently only in portuguese). This support system offers several specialized support, including the special needs of Disabled Students, Health Care, among others.
