Guidance and Research Lines

The Postgraduate Program in Transportation Engineering ((PPG-ET) ) is organized in two focused areas, , each with several lines of research. . The research lines are developed by one or more researchers from the department,, with the collaboration of graduate students and researchers from other institutions , of Brazil and abroad. . These focused areas are not sealed or like a line on the stone. Several researchers of the department, work and guide students in other areas as well, besides the boundary of these two focused areas. . You can learn more about the research lines of each department supervisor by visiting the pages about the program leaders and their Lattes curriculum. .
