In the Undergraduate level, DEI offers the Production Engineering course, envisaging preparing the student for a global performance, thus rendering a socioeconomic perspective, and stimulating the international student exchange with reputable educational institutions abroad, and receiving foreign students. Presently, the undergraduate in Production Engineering is responsible for almost half of the engineers that are qualified at PUC-Rio annually, and which are avidly absorbed by the market.

DEI’s Graduate courses, which involve academic and professional master degree and doctorate in Production Engineering, divided in three concentration areas: Finances and Investment Analysis, Production Management and Transport and Logistic, have the objective to attend the qualification demand of researchers and of highly qualified personnel.
