The School of Mechanical Engineering (FEMEC) of the Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU) has several international colaborations. Historically, one of the most important international partners of FEMEC is France. The French Universities are related to FEMEC through the BRAFITEC program, which is a very strong colaboration between France and Brazil since 2003. The current BRAFITEC projects are listed below.

  1. Professional capacitation to strengthen the Double Diploma Program in the field of Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics and Materials (ProDD3M);
  2. Future factories for the Society;
  3. Program for training bicultural engineers in aeronautical engineering adapted to the needs of the Franco-Brazilian industries.
