About

Profile of the programme To promote the educational and social training and the interaction between different groups of knowledge. Develop capabilities of communication with specialists and generalists. Enable the application of knowledge, and skills of interpretation and reasoning to solve problems, and to design products, equipments and systems. Develop independent learning capabilities allowing the specialist to adapt to constant changing technologies, in a broad range of context and disciplines. Build the capability to integrate knowledge, to handle complex issues, to develop solutions and make judgements in situations of limited and incomplete information. Develop leadership skills for managing people, processes, equipments and goods. Empower to integrate teams of scientific research, innovation and entrepreneurship thus contributing to improve the quality of scientific and technological development of the country.
Key learning outcomes Acquire a detailed knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics, and on the disciplines of engineering sciences in the field of Electromechanical Engineering; in particularly on Mechanics and Thermodynamics, Electricity and Electronics, and Instrumentation, Automation and Control. In particular, the ability to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of facts, concepts, theories and principles essential to the training in Electromechanical Engineering. Present a capability to analyse, identify, classify and describe the performance of systems and components through the application of analytical methods, including computational, on the use of a model and system approach. Prepare the students to continue their education on a 2nd Cycle in Electromechanical Engineering.
