The postgraduate Program in Production and Manufacturing Engineering (PPGEPM) has as main objective of training of masters capable of acting in the professional and academic field such as: industries, research institutes and universities.


The Graduate Program in Production and Manufacture Engineering - PPGEPM, Master’s level, has the main purpose of contributing to the development of the area of Production and Manufacture Engineering area, mainly concerning i) training of highly skilled human resources and ii) the development of next generation scientific research in the area. Those completing the PPGEPM should be able to work in research, development and innovation in professional and academic segments.
To successfully achieve these goals, we continually operate on the following actions:
- Train masters in Production and Manufacture Engineering capable of developing research, development and innovation activities in institutions of excellence in the professional segment (industries, research centers, consultancies, etc.), as well as in the academic segment;
- Introduce or deepen, through a diverse set of disciplines, relevant topics in Production and Manufacture Engineering and related areas, as well as provide the necessary basis for the post-graduate student to be able to use the tools of those areas in practical problems arising from different fields of knowledge;
- Contribute to the development of postgraduate scientific and technological research in the area of Production and Manufacture Engineering, leveraging scientific publications and increasing the potential for projects funding through both national and international research funding agencies, in emerging areas at Unicamp;
- Promote research groups formed by professors, students and post-doctoral interns, capable of working in the area of Product and Manufacture Engineering in the national and international scope.
The selection of applicants to the Master’s degree course is made by annual publication notice.

The Graduation Program in Production and Manufacture Engineering – PPGEPM – has two focus areas: “Operational Research and Processes Management” (POGP) and “Advanced Materials Manufacture” (MMA). A brief description of the focus areas is presented below:
Operational Research and Processes Management (POGP) - The main axis of this focus area is the development of quantitative decision-making support methods based on mathematical and/or data-driven models. With an important insertion in Production Engineering, the search for decision-making support systems has been playing a central role in the technological development observed in recent years, especially in matters related to the treatment of the large volume of information and the development of automated systems necessary to implement smart industries. It is also worth mentioning the development of studies on classic themes of Operational Research, especially those related to Production and Manufacture Engineering. The activities of this focus area are fostered by three Research lines:

- Mathematical Modeling;
- Production and Logistics;
- Quantitative Methods for Decision Making;
Advanced Materials Manufacture (MMA) – In this focus area, the main scientific challenge is the development of theoretical, experimental and computational research on manufacturing and synthesis processes and characterization of advanced engineering materials. Initially, solutions for improvement/enhancement of the manufacturing processes are pursued, as well as automation solutions and increased process efficiency. At a second stage, a systematic study of the characteristics of advanced materials is proposed, by analyzing the phases’ structure, microstructure and morphology in the crystalline, semi crystalline and amorphous solid state, seeking the best understanding and comprehension of their engineering properties according to the manufacturing route. The activities of this focus area are fostered by two lines of Research:
- Manufacturing Processes;
- Advanced Material Properties;
