The Postgraduate Program (Strictu Sensu) in Technology Development has the following areas of concentration:
Technology Generation and Transfer (TGT)
It deals with everything from innovation processes and the analysis and development of specific technologies to institutional capacity for the systemic generation of technology, from the strategic to the operational level. It extends to the various aspects of technology transfer, with emphasis on regulations and inter-institutional relations.
- Electronic Systems
- Development and implementation of solutions to problems where hardware alternatives are desired, including analog and digital circuits.
- Systems Development
- It relates to the study, proposal, application, and evaluation of methodologies and techniques of computer systems development in the context of Information Systems development. It proposes both new approaches to be used in the development of Information Systems and the systematic analysis of existing approaches. It also covers management processes related to Information Systems, including business processes related to Information Technology.
- Innovation management
- Analysis of the processes of formulation, implementation and monitoring of projects in technology and innovation. It includes the development of research on the topics of production processes and dissemination of technological innovation; management of intellectual property; information and knowledge management in scientific, technological and innovation processes and projects; transfer of information and knowledge between university-company; technology monitoring aimed at social development; contributions of science, technology and innovation to sustainable development.
- Innovation in Productive Processes.
Energy Systems – Conventional and Alternative (ESCA)
Focuses on analysis, experimentation and development of energy technologies, applicable in conventional or alternative systems, with emphasis on the search for energy efficiency and economic and quality gains.
- Electric Power Systems
- Smart Grid
- Market and Energy Planning
- Electric Power Quality and Electromagnetic Compatibility
- Energy Technologies
- Power Generation Technologies

- Energy Storage Systems
Environment and Development (ED)
It relates technology, environment and society. Covers the incorporation of environmental and development issues in the technological process.
- Environmental Resource Management
- Introductory Discipline – Environment
- Water Resources
- Water quality
- Environmental Impact Studies
- Waste Management
- Environmental Geotechnology
Materials Technology (MT)
Characterization and performance evaluation of materials for engineering application and development of new materials.
- Renewable and non-renewable energies
- Development of materials for different energy sectors with a focus on fuel cells, batteries, components and processes from the oil and biodiesel sector, as well as materials for the use of solar energy and biomass. Relationship between the different energy generation processes and the materials that allow meeting the requirements of each process.
- Engineering Materials
- Study and development of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials aiming at applications in the most diverse areas of engineering, such as mechanical, electrical, chemical and environmental engineering, including the processing and physical and chemical characterization of materials, such as aging, degradation, and the following properties: mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical and thermal, chemical, morphological and structural.
