Annually, the University of Porto celebrates the members of the institution that stood out the most during the previous year. In the amount of 999 euros (equivalent to the annual fee), the Incentive Prize 2017 is intended for students who, in the academic year 2015/2016, completed their first year with the best average in the 14 colleges of U.Porto (the colleges with more than 1500 students enrolled students distinguish two or more students). The aim is to promote and encourage excellence among students since their first year of enrollment at the University.
Last year, during the Solemn Session that commemorates the 106th anniversary of the U.Porto (22nd March), 22 students were awarded one of the Incentive Awards, an initiative that, for the eighth consecutive year, distinguishes the best first year students from each college at U.Porto. Among them, four students from the Integrated Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering: Francisco Andrade, Xavier Pontes, João Damas and André Cruz.
Congratulations to the four and keep up your excellent work.
