Bachelor in Agro-Industrial Technology

Education objectives

The degree in Agro-Industrial Technology adopts a perspective of employability at national and international levels and aiming to develop a solid conceptual and pragmatic training in the field of state-of-the-art technologies, with application in the production of raw materials and development of processed products in the agri-food sector. In this context, the objectives of this study cycle consider the development of skills to:
1-Optimization of production processes and intelligent transformation of goods, considering social, economic and environmental impacts;
2-Increase the efficiency of automation, computer and energy conversion and use systems, aiming at gains in scale and scope;
3-Increase the commercial value of agri-food products to the consumer, along with the guarantee of agri-food quality and safety.

Evaluation rules

The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.

The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of two elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.

All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).

All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.

For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.
