The Higher Institute of Science and Technology of Mozambique (ISCTEM) is a Private Law institution, with scientific, pedagogical, administrative and financial autonomy, created through the Decree of Law No. 46/96 of 5 November. ISCTEM offers courses in the areas of health, engineering and technology, social sciences and legal sciences and arts. ISCTEM is committed to quality education and works to develop conditions that allow the trainee to benefit from an intellectually challenging and transformative training.
ISCTEM was created in 1996 as the second private Higher Education Institution in Mozambique. Over the years, ISCTEM has broadened its spectrum in terms of training areas to include Postgraduate courses as well as executive courses for the improvement of professionals in service. This growth relies on the collaboration of partner institutions based in the country, in the region and in various parts of the world. This sharing of experiences with partner institutions has contributed greatly to the training of graduates prepared for the demands of the profession.
