Graduate programs enables students to follow the evolution of technical and scientific knowledge. The competencies developed during these programs help those who wish to follow a career in teaching or research, also to achieve further academic degrees, and to improve employability or professional promotion.

There are two types of Graduate Programs: Lato Sensu, including Specialization Programs and MBA (Master in Business Administration), and Stricto Sensu, including Master’s and Doctorate Degree Programs.

The Master’s Degree Programs are presented in two modalities, equal in their concepts, but with different objectives and means of conduction. The Academic Master’s Degree Program are more theoretical and prepares its students to become researchers, normally pursuing a doctorate degree afterwards. The Professional Master’s Degree is directly linked to the labor market and the production system. Both programs, however, bestow equal degrees and prerogatives, which includes carrying out formal teaching.

The Stricto Sensu programs are recognized and evaluated by the rigorous criteria of the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES).

Taking a Graduate Program at UNIFEI allow students to develop skills, deepen knowledge, emphasize the practice of theoretical content, expand their contact network and keep up-to-date on their knowledge areas, among other advantages.

Our Graduate Programs counts on research professors, support from technicians and a modern and well-equipped lab infrastructure, helping to develop research papers. They are the results from dedication and serious work, driven by the synergy between the professors’ researches, contributing to the training of undergraduates, masters and doctoral students.

Admission to Unifei’s Graduate Programs takes place through selective processes, opened via annual or semi-annual notices, specifically for each Graduate Program.
