Master’s (12 to 30 months) and Doctorate (24 to 54 months)

By producing individuals specialized in teaching and research, the program encourages social inclusion and contributes to the increasing role played by Brazil in global innovation and technological developments. The program involves education at the most advanced level and is therefore committed to continuous education from the most basic to the graduate level, culminating in the development of scientific and technological research projects.
