About Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná
The Federal Technological University of Paraná (UTFPR) is the first so named in Brazil and, therefore, has a somewhat different history from other universities. The Institution was not created and, rather, transformed from the Federal Center of Technological Education of Paraná (Cefet-PR). As the origin of this center is the School of Apprentice Crafts, founded in 1909, UTFPR inherited a long and expressive trajectory in professional education.
UTFPR's main focus is graduation, postgraduate and extension. It offers 100 top technology courses, bachelor's degrees (among them engineering) and licentiate's degrees. The consolidation of undergraduate education encourages graduate growth, with more than 90 specialization courses, 40 stricto sensu postgraduate programs, with master's and doctoral courses, as well as hundreds of research groups.
With wide coverage in Paraná, UTFPR has 13 campuses in the State and intends to expand this performance. Currently, UTFPR's workforce is 2,549 teachers and 1,176 technical-administrative staff. The number of regular students in technical, undergraduate and postgraduate courses exceeds 32 thousand.
