Unesp offers the second largest structure for Graduate studies in the Brazil with 152 Graduate Programs. Our programs are characterized by the diversity of courses offered in all areas of knowledge, academic relevance and comprehensiveness.

Unesp Graduate Programs have approximately 3.200 professor-mentors, 14.000 students regularly enrolled and an average of 3.300 Masters and PhD degrees awarded annually.

Students enrolled in Unesp programs have the opportunity to apply for institutional scholarships offered by Capes, CNPq and research scholarships offered by Fapesp. Students can also participate in national and international events that contribute to their training. It is worth mentioning the quality of the Unesp campus libraries, which offer excellent conditions for students to develop their projects.

The quantity and quality of the research carried out by these Programs were essential to place Unesp under the global spotlight, as the university ranks among the top universities in several international rankings. In times of global universities, Unesp promotes several actions aimed at mobility and the international exchange of students and professors, expanding scientific collaborations and institutional partnerships.

The Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Capes), a foundation of the Ministry  of Education, is the body responsible for graduate education policy and for consolidating and expanding stricto sensu programs (Masters and PhD) in Brazil.

In 1976, CAPES implemented the  National System of Evaluation of Graduate Education. This system is the basis of the process for authorization and recognition of  Master's and PhDs courses and for the national validation of their diplomas. The evaluation process is based on the analysis by peers of the reports of the courses on their annual performance. A  grade (from 1 to 7) is given to each program, which is now reviewed every four years.

Teaching and research activities developed by the Mechanical Engineering Program are based on seeking integral training of future professors and researchers in their corresponding areas of expertise, providing them with critical thinking, conceptual domain and ethical values, being always aligned with scientific and technological developments within the boundaries of knowledge. The programme has contributed to the training of human resources from several related areas, including Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Materials, Production and Semiotic Engineering, Physics, among others.

In a consistent manner with its proposal, it is observed relevant efforts of internationalization through new coming professors and students from other countries to participate in international collaborative research projects, as well as faculty and student mobility in exchange and internship programmes at major national and foreign Universities. In addition, programme participants have been acting throughout the country and even abroad, thus establishing and strengthening partnerships with other universities and research centres.
