The Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) is a public university located in Curitiba in the state of Parana, Brazil. Its main campus is in the state capital with its other facilities spread throughout Parana. Established in 1912, UFPR ranks somewhere in the vicinity of 30-50 top universities in Latin America and among the top 1,000 in world rankings. A sizable university, UFPR easily sees around 30,000 students with almost 9,000 of them taking graduate studies.
UFPR was founded in December 1912 as a private institution. Its initial courses revolved around engineering, social sciences, medicine and surgery, obstetrics, pharmacy and dentistry. The university was already in the planning stage as far back as 1892, before Jose Francisco da Rocha Pombo, a local intellectual, proposed its establishment. However, the project would be denied by the country’s move towards federalism at the time.
The university would be realized two decades later and in 1951, it became a public university mandated to offer free tuition. UFPR would further expand throughout the ‘50s and ’60s, including the construction of the Clinic’s Hospital in 1953, the addition of the Reitoria Campus in 1953 and the establishment of the Polytechnic Center in 1961.
Academic programs are extensive, covering over 120 undergraduate disciplines, nearly 70 master's degrees and over 40 Ph.D. fields of study. Likewise, UFPR offers professional specializations and one-year short courses called lato sensu programs.
The academic disciplines cover a wide range of areas from business, engineering and sciences to arts, humanities, I.T. and telecommunications. Health sciences, social sciences and veterinary medicine are also covered. On the other hand, graduate academic programs in as diverse areas as applied mathematics, education, sociology, design, law, accounting, political sciences and bioinformatics are offered. Other master's programs include zoology, physical education, nursery, geodesic sciences, coastal and oceanic systems and history.
The university also confers degrees in more than 30 doctoral programs. Examples are cell biology, child and teenager health, law, biotechnological engineering, veterinary medicine and mechanical engineering.
On the research front, the Federal University of Paraná has an extensive network of laboratories, including facilities for areas like cellular metabolism, neurobiology, genetics, technology development, computer science, food processing, landscaping, mineral science, forestry, acoustics, environment and human cytogenetics.
Meanwhile, its academic and research programs have produced luminaries in various fields, including Blairo Maggi (agribusiness entrepreneur), Daniel Przybysz (radiation oncologist), Edith Fanta (Antarctic researcher) and Roberto Requião (former governor of Paraná).
