Graduate Mobility

Mobility Programs

The applications for the Incoming Mobility of Graduate Students is explained at this link and is made exclusively online. The graduate student enrolled in a foreign university that is interested in applying for international mobility at UFF, must get in contact with their home university to know the internal procedures for Mobility. Once that information is obtained, it is important to confirm if UFF has a compatible course with their academic interests.

UFF receives graduate students (Masters and Doctorate) for the minimal period of 3 months, and the maximum period of 12 months for Masters and 24 months for Doctorate.

Initials

PPGDC

 

Program description

Graduate Program in Constitutional Law aims to institute a field of advanced knowledge production on the state and superstrate political-legal institutions, joining them with the theoretical and historical foundations which are original to their shaping. The core of the program is the understanding of the constitutional phenomenon from its theoretical and historical roots. This perspective renovates the dogmatic constitutional approach, highlighting the encrusting of the Constitutional Law in the political-legal theoretical paradigm and in the underlying social reality, whose apprehension allows a reasoned, critical and propositional understanding of the legal reality.

 

Levels

Master

 

Main lines of Research
  • Political Institutions, Public Administration, and Constitutional Jurisdiction: The Political Institutions, Public Administration, and Constitutional Jurisdiction line of research has as main goal to investigate how modern States and the Brazilian State, in particular, work relating its structure and dynamics to the reach of Constitutional Law;
  • Constitutional Law and Theory and International and Comparative Constitutional Law: The Constitutional Law and Theory and International and Comparative Constitutional Law line of research has as a goal to produce knowledge on the different processes of historical and theoretical constitution of the structures, principles, norms, and operation of modern and contemporaneous Constitutional Law.

Culture and Territoriality
 Initials:

PPCULT

 

Program description

The Post-Graduate Program in Culture and Territoriality (PPCULT), was approved in 2012 by CAPES, having received in their first four-yearly evaluation (2013-2016), grade 4. It is the result of a demand of UFF lecturers and students for more investment in research and study in the field of culture and territoriality because of its increasing importance in contemporaneity. Gathering lecturers from different areas (such as Cultural Production, Media and Cultural Studies, Education, Anthropology, History, Letters, Sociology, Communication, etc.), brought together by their research and reflections related to the study of culture in many senses, especially when it comes to discussing spatiality and territoriality, material and symbolic, the new Program finds its place of insertion by excellency in an interdisciplinary perspective, a great area at CAPES, in which it is inserted.

 

Levels

Master

Main lines of Research
  • POLITICS, SPACIALITIES, RELATIONS, AND SOCIOCULTURAL CONFLICTS – This line of research recognizes the mutual dependence relations between space, culture and politics. It is translated, therefore, in the social and cultural practices crossed by the diverse types of territorialization and the way the social subjects take their place in the political world. This way, it is interesting to interpolate phenomena identified in the relations between politics and culture, between culture and patrimony, between diversity, difference, and otherness, between economy and cultural work, between culture, conflict, and power, between sociability and ways of territory appropriation, between generational dimensions, etc., in their relations with the multiple ways of production of spaces and the city;
  • PERFOMANCES, AGENCIES, AND PLURAL CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE – It examines social practices which forge identities, territories, and spatiality. It aims to investigate, in an interdisciplinary perspective, experiences related to social interactions in the city, the country, the cyberspace involving knowledge exchange and cultural mediations, relations of power and political, cultural dispute, etc. In the proposed approach, objects, bodies, spaces are seen as bearers of agency, poetic qualities, performative dimensions in the measure in which they trigger modalities and ritualistic, imaginary, religious, and artistic qualities;
  • BORDERS AND PRODUCTIONS OF MEANING – This line intends to discuss borders and flows in multiple meanings, beyond its physical dimension, although including it, but also incorporating other possibilities in terms of displacement and hybridity. In this sense, the line will encompass reflections about territoriality in its regional, national and global dimensions, thinking from in-between-places. In the same way, we will focus in matters of post-/de- colonialism (with emphasis in Latin America in a general way), of intersectionality (with emphasis in the variables surrounding gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, migrations, diasporas), of narrative constructions of memories, identities, representations, subjectivities, and routes. Discursive aspects, relations of power, and the multiple languages of culture surrounding the productions of meaning will guide the reflections in multi, inter, and transcultural perspectives.

PFI currently has 16 permanent professors, all of them have high productivity according to the fomentation agency, and it is in its eighth year of operation. Since 2011, the year that the master’s program began, there were more than 60 dissertation defenses, which enabled us to open the doctorate program after we raised the grade to 4 in the last four-yearly evaluation by CAPES. The doctorate program is going to be launched now in August 2019. The big news is that we increased our number of lines of research from 2 to 4 and we count with students that keep qualifying themselves, and also with a journal of excellency, namely “Viso: Cadernos de estética aplicada”, bound to one of the Lines of the Program.

 

Levels

Master and Doctorate

 

Main lines of Research
  • Esthetics and Art Philosophy: This line of research was created from the convergence of a series of research in development by professors of the Department of Philosophy at UFF, which, since 2009, have been working in the Group of Research of Esthetics and Art Philosophy, responsible for the edition of the Viso: Cadernos de estética aplicada (www.revistaviso.com.br). The diversity of the topics approached, historic periods and problems treated but the individual research – from Ancient Greece to Modernity and Contemporaneity – build a space of mutual theoretical reference, ideal for the investigation and organization of events in Esthetics.
  • History of Philosophy: This line came from the perception that the research and publications of our professors are related not only to the investigation of historic-philosophic nature or related to History of Philosophy, but thematize, in a large scale, the repercussion of schools and philosophic authors in other periods of the history of philosophy, just like the origin of concepts and philosophic problems of a time in previous periods in the history of philosophy. In other words, they are fundamentally problems of history of philosophy that are at stake in the research of these professors. Moreover, the line justifies itself also because of the importance of this study in the tradition of the philosophical thinking itself. From Plato and Aristotle, the discussion with tradition is a fundamental element in the exercise of Philosophy. And we can also say that, since Hegel, the historicity of the thinking transformed itself into philosophy in an inescapable dimension.
  • Knowledge and Language: This line has as main goal to gather researchers whose research projects focus, above all, topics dear to logic and language philosophy (in its analytical and pragmatic sides), to the philosophy of mind and to phenomenology (prevailed by discussions relating to knowledge and the retaking of metaphysics). In this line, diverse colorations between the fields of Analytics, Pragmatic, Phenomenology, and the Philosophy of Mind are recognized, and they can promote methodic and rigorous studies, both in the exegetical and in the thematic nature.
  • Ethics and Political Philosophy: This line had its origin in the necessity of converging a series of investigations and academic productions already in course, developed in isolation by professors of our Post-Graduate Program, and that, however, could not find an adequate place for their articulation of the lines of research that already existed. Moreover, and in second place, this line justifies itself also because of the pertinence and permanence of the thematic horizon and the problems showed by practical philosophy and by political thinking in the center of our philosophic tradition and even our common culture (which already incorporated, in its vulgar repertoire, terms such as “moral”, “freedom”, “democracy”, “republic”, “authoritarianism”, “human rights”, among others). In this sense, it is about gathering a group of thematic researches organized according to three main axes: (a) the different meanings of moral and ethics and their mutual interactions; (b) the relationship between the notions of authority and obedience understood in their imminent political registry, which means, like the relationship between rulers and the governed; (c) the ways of institutionalization and of resistance to power, comprised in a macro and micropolitical key, and their relationships with the scope of morality in general.

PGC

Program description

The Post-Graduate Program in Computer Science (PGC) of the Institute of Computer Science (IC) of the Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF) was created in 1999, through the fusion of the post-graduate programs in Computer Science and in Applied Computer and Automation, both existed since 1995. In 2002, the Doctorate program in Computer Science was launched, receiving, alongside with the Master’s program, grade 4 by CAPES. The doctorate program boosted the quality of research developed at the PGC and in the four-yearly evaluation performed in 2007 the program earned grade 5 by CAPES. Through the last 10 years, the program went through important internal reorganization, implemented a policy for hiring doctors with a research profile, and received a considerable investment in infrastructure. As a result of its growth, in the four-yearly evaluation in 2017, the program earned grade 6 by CAPES. The Program has as main goal to train highly-qualified professionals in the activities of teaching and research in Computer Sciences, including its practical applications, particularly in Engineering and Healthcare. Alongside with this goal, the Program presents a clearly multidisciplinary profile, acting strongly in the areas of Scientific Computing, Computing Applied to Potency Systems and Computing Applied to Healthcare. The recent main initiative of the PGC to promote the internationalization of the program was the submission of projects to the CAPES/PRINT Public Notice (“Edital”). The PGC had three CAPES/PRINT projects approved in 2018 and they will be worked on until 2022, which will allow the offer of more doctoral exchange program scholarships, several faculty work missions accredited abroad and the reception of foreign researchers as visitors at the PGC, encouraging the collaboration with international partners.

Main lines of Research

The program is currently organized in five areas of concentration, namely:

  • Algorithms and Optimization: This area of concentration is dedicated, mostly, to computational modelling of problems of fundamental optimization or originated in applications in the areas of telecommunication, transportation, sports, manufacturing, biology, and medicine, just like the search for efficient algorithms in the resolution of such problems. It is articulated with four lines of research that complement each other: Computational Biology, Combinatorial Optimization, Metaheuristics and Theory, and Algorithms in Graphs.
  • Scientific Computing and Potency Systems: This area of concentration is about two big themes. Scientific computing is an approach used to improve the understanding of the phenomena studied in Natural Sciences and in Engineering. Computational systems are developed and they aim to represent the phenomena in study from their mathematical description. Computational techniques are analyzed aiming at the formal establishment of its effectivity and efficiency. The search for efficiency incorporates, usually, the use of high-performance computational techniques, including parallel and distributed processing because a great amount of data is involved. Each phenomenon is analyzed through computational simulations. The second theme deals with complex potency systems, which are destined to generate, transmit and distribute electrical energy. The narrow dependence of modern society in relation to the use of electrical energy has been leading to the search for solutions for sophisticated problems which have to do with continuity and quality of supply. The great postage of potency systems and the aggregation of new technologies bring constant challenges to the analysis, planning and operation of these systems. In this context, computational methods, optimization techniques, and artificial intelligence constitute a powerful tool when dealing with problems in this area.
  • Visual Computing: This area of concentration deals with computational systems applied to any step of an acquisition, processing, analysis, synthesis, and interpretation process of visual data. It is an interdisciplinary area that requires knowledge in the fields of computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, and cognitive sciences, among others. The depth of knowledge required in each field depends on the adopted line of research and on the considered applications. In the area of Visual Computing activities are developed in seven lines of research: Image Analysis and Processing, Computer Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, Games and Digital Entertainment, Geometric Data Processing, Computer Vision and Data Visualization.
  • Systems and Information Engineering: The area of Systems and Information Engineering concentrates its studies in methodologies and techniques for software development and the acquisition, representation, management, analysis, and transformation of data, information and knowledge that is consumed or produced by computational systems. These studies are made in theoretical and formal contexts as much as in practical and applied ones. The ESI area is organized in five lines of research: Database, Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Programing Languages, and Formal Methods.
  • Computer Systems: This area develops scientific, theoretical and applied research, in the following lines of research: Algorithms and Distributed Systems, Ubiquitous Computing, High Performance Processing, Computer Networks, System Security, and Multimedia Systems. The area has modern computational resources in the thematic labs MídiaCom and SGCLab, as well as broad access to resources external to IC via interaction with national and international businesses. In this area of concentration courses are offered regularly, such as Distributed Algorithms, Parallel Algorithm, Parallel Architecture, Mobile Computing, Computer Networks and Real Time and Onboard Computing; in addition to optional courses, such as Computer Network Architecture, Performance Evaluation, Large Scale Computing, Ubiquitous Computing, Onboard Systems Development, Network Engineering, Multimedia Systems Development, Parallel Programing Lab, Multimedia Networks, Network Security, and Special Topics in Computer Systems.

Main lines of Research
  • Currently we are in a process of restructuring our lines of research – in this sense, the information provided ahead shall suffer changes soon. Right now, our lines of research are the following:
    Analysis and Applied Mathematics: This is a line that puts together lecturers with diverse interests, but with common investigation themes. This line has 5 permanent lecturers, whose interests include: Partial Differential Equations and Control Theory; Combinatory and Graphs; Biomathematics, Games Theory; Quantitative Finance.
  • Algebraic Geometry: It is dedicated to the study of geometric objects given by algebraic conditions. The goal is the study and the classification of geometric objects and their deformations, using tools primarily algebraic.
  • Differential Geometry: It studies the geometric invariables of Riemannian varieties relating them with global geometry and the topology of varieties. Isometric or minimal immersions are also studied.
  • Topology/Dynamic Systems: The Theory of Dynamic Systems brings back Henri Poincaré’s works about differential equations from the end of the 19th century. Given that most differential equations cannot be solved through formulas, Poincaré defended a new approach: The solutions should be object of a qualitative analysis, using the geometric and probabilistic tools available, which should be complemented with a numeric study of the differential equation.
