The study cycle, by being integrated in polytechnic education, is driven by a constant perspective of applied research and development, aimed at comprehension and solution of concrete problems.


In general, the objectives are: to provide a solid higher level cultural and technical education; and to develop innovative and critical analysis capabilities; to provide scientific knowledge of theoretical and practical nature, aiming professional activities.

More specifically, it should provide competencies in: telecommunication and communication systems, electronics and microprocessors, information technology and systems, computer networks, programming languages, automation and control systems, electric power systems, electric machines, design of electrical and telecommunications installations, among others.

It’s yet an objective to meet the needs of companies and institutions, potentially employers of our graduates.

The applications for public higher education are made annually through national call and/or special contests.
