PPGTA Alumni Testimonials


“I am very grateful to the Environmental Technologies program. The theoretical basis of the Master, where I used Numerical Methods, Mathematical Modeling, Optimization etc. first of all, it enabled me to achieve academic results, such as obtaining the title of Doctor by USP de São Carlos. The theoretical basis obtained in the PGTA Graduate Program helped me in the development of algorithms that were incorporated into software called INFOSAN, which was acquired in 2018 by an American multinational company (Itron).

Currently, I am as Director of Digital Solutions in Latin America at Accell, working on the development of new solutions and application of IoT in the Water, Gas, Energy and Smart Cities markets. Finally, I can affirm that the main differential of the PGTA is multidisciplinarity, allowing professionals who attend the program to expand their area of expertise in the market.”
