Engineering at society’s service

Research at Escola Politécnica of the Universidade de São Paulo
supports the Brazilian industrial development

Traditional Brazilian engineering school, ever since its foundation in 1893, the Escola Politécnica (Poli/USP) has been dedicated to meet the most different demands in science and technology. Located in the State of São Paulo, one of the richest and most developed states in Brazil, the institution was established at a time when industrialization demanded qualified professionals to deal with the modernization of the productive processes and to provide solutions based on the emerging technologies of the time.

The Escola Politécnica historical trend to devote its research to the solution of society’s problems, and its partnership with the industry, is still witnessed today, by means of the more than 150 agreements and contracts with corporations and industries. The institution researchers’ efforts encompass from basic research into engineering sciences up to applied research and development, and are a reference to Brazilian engineering.

Research at Poli/USP is far-reaching and comprehends different fields of engineering knowledge, involving the great Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Chemical Engineering areas, along with their specializations.
