The purpose of the Environmental Science and Technology program is developing teaching and research for the interpretation of environmental dynamics, aiming at proposing and developing systemic technologies and interventions, leading to recovery and conservation.
Interdisciplinary research is considered essential for scientific advancement in several knowledge fields, necessary for environmental understanding. Therefore, the student profile is rather varied in terms of professional experience and education background; thus, strengthening the disciplinary dialogues required for building the interdisciplinarity that characterizes the proposal. The students will leave the Environmental Science and Technology course capable to solve complex problems found in the environmental area. The performance of these professionals will have the advantage of knowing the structure and functioning of environmental systems, and by holding expertise in developing techniques for the use of natural resources, preventing negative impacts and solving existing problems, considering the social, historical, and geographical features.
