All the courses offered by the Polytechnical School of Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro are considered references in their areas of performance, therefore they integrate theoretical quality and practical experience in diverse levels: undergraduate, graduate and extension.
Interpoli is a Student Association from the Polytechnic School, School of Chemistry and COPPE at UFRJ that seeks to improve the experience of foreign students who start studying at the Technology Center (CT), through academic exchange programs and aims to build a positive image of UFRJ abroad. Interpoli supports the International Office of Pcholytenic School (DARI-Poli) in welcoming students and integrating them into the Brazilian university environment and the city of Rio de Janeiro.
