The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro – UFRJ

 

The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro – UFRJ is a Brazilian public and free university recognized by its high quality of teaching as well as by its commitment to research. The institution has four campuses in Rio de Janeiro state: Cidade Universitária, Praia Vermelha, Macaé and Xerém.

 

Structurally, the UFRJ comprises the Science and Culture Forum and six university centers – the Center of Health Sciences (CCS), the Center of Juridical and Economic Sciences (CCJE), the Center of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (CCMN), the Center of Philosophy and Human Sciences (CFCH), the Center of Letters and Arts (CLA), and the Center of Technology (CT). Each of the centers comprises institutes, schools, faculties and supplementary units, which includes seven museums, among which we can highlight the National Museum, eight university hospitals, and the third deepest ocean basin in the world for research on offshore oil exploration.

 

Currently, the UFRJ offers 175 undergraduate programs in all areas, 112 master’s programs, 89 doctorate programs, 120 extension projects and 315 sensu lato graduate courses. It has a student body of ~40,000 undergraduate students, 5,992 master’s students, 5,520 doctorate students, 5,281 e-learning students; a staff of 4,122 professors and researchers, and 9,350 technical-administrative employees.  UFRJ is the largest federal university of Brazil.

 

The graduate programs in Brazil are evaluated by CAPES. UFRJ has 60% of all its courses graded 5, 6 and 7, the highest scores in CAPES.

 

The UFRJ strongly believes in the creation of an intercultural environment not only as a way to foster academic links, but also to strengthen the friendship among people by encouraging the sense of respect for diversity in others.

 

Following this path, the institution maintains cooperative relations with more than 170 international institutions worldwide. The UFRJ has also established partnerships with many national enterprises, some of which have facilities on the UFRJ campuses (i.e. Petrobrás). Moreover, the Science Park of Rio de Janeiro is in Cidade Universitária, which stimulates a closer exchange of knowledge between students, professors and enterprises.    

 

All these features consolidate the active role of the UFRJ in the development of science, technology and innovation as well as ratifies the institution’s commitment to a conception of a plural, modern and democratic university.
