  • Center of Informatics of UFPE

    Our commitment to quality and competence in research and education is only one of the factors responsible for making the Center of Informatics of the Federal University of Pernambuco one of the largest and best academic complexes dedicated to Computer Science in Latin America, and one of top five CS academic centers in Brazil. Great effort and dedication was needed to acquire the stature enjoyed today.

    In 1974, the Statistics and Informatics Department at UFPE was created, offering degrees and graduate courses in Computer Science. In 1983, the Informatics Department was separated from the Statistics Department. Sixteen years later, in 1999, the department, that then was part of the Center for Exact and Natural Sciences (CCEN), was raised to the level of Center, with the same status in hierarchy given to other Centers at UFPE.

    With over thirty years of existence, the Center is very important to the economic and technological development of the state of Pernambuco and of the rest of the northeastern region of Brazil. This is due in part to the high academic credentials of the faculty members, 54 of them with PhD degrees and 3 with MSc degrees, along with constant improvements in the BSc degree courses (Computer Science and Computer Engineering) and graduate courses in Computer Science (PhD and MSc degrees, MBA in Technology Management and other specializations). The Informatics Center is also always investing in infrastructure to better assist its students and lecturers.

    In the last ten years, the Center has been attracting projects from large private corporations, promoting the development of new technologies and processes for the ecosystem. In particular, the Center maintains a close partnership with great institutions such as C.E.S.A.R. – The Center for Studies and Advanced Systems of Recife – and Softex Recife, along with establishing excellent relations (in part due to the incentives of the Informatics Law) with companies like Motorola, Samsung, Epson, Itautec, Positivo, Mecaf, Leucotron and Engentron, originating a successful model of symbiosis between the University and the ICT industry. 

    The Informatics Center at UFPE offers undergrad and graduation courses in Game Design and Development as an optinal part of their BSc, MSc and Phd courses.
