Undergraduate Program Descriptions:

Aerospace Engineering The program enables graduates to work on mathematical models and on system construction, design, analysis, testing and control in the aerospace sector. The aerospace engineer can go on to work in companies of the aerospace or mechanical sector, in research at institutes and universities, as well as autonomously.
Automotive Engineering The program will give graduates a systemic view of automotive engineering, aimed at the planning, design, construction, maintenance and disposal of automotive systems such as automobiles, trucks, buses, motorcycles and other road vehicles.
Infrastructure Engineering The program will give graduates in-depth knowledge to work on the planning, design, construction and management of large civil engineering infrastructure such as bridges, airports, tunnels, ports and harbors. The professional field will cover areas of civil construction such as structural systems, geotechnics, transportation systems and waterways, land planning and pavement restructuring.
Interdisciplinary Programme in Mobility This three-year undergraduate degree program aims at giving students an interdisciplinary profile with skills in logical thinking, mathematics, computing, statistics, chemistry, physics, technical drawing, and ergonomics and safety.
Mechatronics Engineering The mechatronics engineer works on the design and integration of mechanical and electrical/electronic systems for products and equipment with large applicability in all industry sectors, such as automotive, aerospace, energy and of medical hospital equipment.
Naval Engineering The program enables graduates to work on the planning, construction, maintenance and disposal of conventional and special vessels, port and oceanic structures. Professionals can also work on port organization and management, on the study of maritime cargo shipping and in interdisciplinary areas of engineering such as mechanical, electrical, production, mechatronics, metallurgical and materials.
Railway and Subway Engineering The program enables graduates to work on the design, operation and maintenance of railway and subway systems. Employment opportunities are promising as the increasing concern about urban mobility has demanded investments in new subway lines, surface trains, monorails and high-speed trains in Brazil.
Transportation and Logistics Engineering The program enables graduates to devise ideal conditions for the transportation of people, assets, information and resource allocation, seeking to work out challenges on urban mobility, cargo shipping and environmental impact from different means of transportation.
