DEPARTMENT OF METALURGICAL AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING - POLYTECHNIC SCHOOL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SÃO PAULOPOLI/USP

Undergraduate

Red & Pre-Master Module

Red Modules: The choice of a red module by the students will take place in October through the Jupiter System. Below is a summary of the Graduation Committee's decisions regarding the "red" specialization modules, both the oldest and the most recent:

  • It will always be guaranteed that a student will have a place to study the module naturally associated with his own course. Thus, in the case of our courses, the student of Metallurgy will always have access to the module "Processing of Ceramic and Polymeric Materials", while the student of Materials will always have a vacancy in the module "Processing of Metallic Materials"
  • Poli's various courses will offer, in 2018, 42 modules of specialization and 7 pre-masters.
  • When you reach 80% of the credits in the curricular structure of your course until the 7th semester, the student will be able to enroll for a module. However, he will not be obliged to do so.
  • There will be no process of transferring students from one module to another. If the student withdraws from the module in which he / she is enrolled, then he / she should wait for the option period for modules and register as a candidate for the new module, competing on equal terms with the opponents for the first time.
  • If the student is not selected to attend the desired module, then it will not be stopped, because it will always have a guaranteed slot in the module associated with its course.
  • If the student wants, he can make more than one module in the School. However, you will not be able to apply for more than one module simultaneously. Do not forget too that since 2014 the maximum term for graduation is only 7.5 years. At the end of this time in the school the student enters the "Article 76" and has the possibility of having only 3 more approved enrollments - under mentoring - to complete his course.
  • If the student is selected for a module (the end of the second semester) and then in the next semester he studies abroad ("credit utilization"), then his vacancy in the module will remain assured until he returns to Brazil.
  • On the other hand, if the student is already abroad, his or her enrollment status will be "Studying abroad", which will not allow him to enter the selection process. This is the same treatment given to the student with locked registration or even studying abroad, but in an autonomous way (without Poli's authorization or without having undergone an official selection process).
  • Students in Dual Diploma programs typically attend Poli until the 7th semester (in a few cases, until the 5th semester only). The international agreements that are already being concluded under the EC3 have established that the student of this program that leaves the country after the 7th semester, will study two years abroad, training that will replace the need to take a red module and, when returning, will take only the 8th semester of his course at Poli, after which he graduates with both degrees. So your training will last for 6 years and will not involve red module.
  • The student studying subjects abroad, that is, in "credit utilization", when returning to Brazil will have two options:
    • If you have studied abroad, disciplines relevant to your module, then it enters with a request for equivalence of disciplines which will be evaluated by the coordinator of the module. The student may have equivalence of disciplines from abroad with disciplines of the module, gaining time to complete it.
    • If the subjects studied abroad do not give equivalence, the student can still ask for their inclusion in the curriculum and they can be valid as free elective subjects. Remember that our courses stipulate a total load of free credits of 23 credits-class
