About the EESC-USP
The São Carlos School of Engineering (EESC) at the University of São Paulo (USP) is located in São Carlos, São Paulo. São Carlos is a city with 250 thousand inhabitants and it is located 150 miles away São Paulo. In São Carlos, you will find two of the most important Brazilian public universities: the University of São Paulo and the Federal University of São Carlos. The city is a national center of technology and science and there is one doctor for every 135 inhabitants, the highest rate among other cities in the whole Latin America.
The São Carlos Campus at USP is technologically-oriented including, besides the Engineering School, the institutes of Architecture, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Computing Sciences. The EESC has about 3,000 undergraduate and more than 1,000 graduate enrolled students. 200 professors and 300 staff members take care of these students in 10 undergraduate courses and 11 graduate programs (see).
Every year, international rankings have normally classified the University of São Paulo as the first or the second best university in Latin America. This is an outcome of USP's main purpose: to contribute to society. To do this, we focus on three main pillars: research, teaching and outreach activities. Internationalization is also one of our main strategic goals. This course is an example of such a strategy (see).
