The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo
is one of the leading Brazilian institutions for higher education and research in mechanical engineering. The high quality of its professors, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students and the strong links developed through the years with industry and research agencies have granted a very successful history in teaching, research and development, and extension.
Our degree in Mechanical Engineering offers a very solid foundation in basic science and engineering design, without leaving practical applications aside. In the last year, the student can specialise in one of four different areas: Energy and Environment, Aeronautics, Automotive Engineering or Biomedical engineering. In the last years we have attracted the best students admitted in the Polytechnic School, and have also hosted a large number of exchange students.
The Department also hosts a number of research groups, in which professors, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students join strengths to produce world class research in energy, fluid mechanics, dynamics and control, automotive engineering, material science, biomedical engineering, among other research topics.
