The Campus

The UFSC Joinville Campus, inaugurated in 2009, develops teaching, research and outreach activities aimed at training professionals with high technical and managerial competence to work in the operation and maintenance of transportation systems, in the study of scenarios and projects to solve infrastructure problems, and in the development of technological systems in mobility-focused areas.

Currently installed within a business and technology condominium, the Joinville Campus seeks to bring the university, industry and society closer together.

Its infrastructure totals 13 thousand m² of built area and includes classrooms, administrative offices, teaching, research and outreach laboratories, a university restaurant and a branch library.

About two thousand people – among students, faculty, and technical and administrative staff – make up the Joinville Campus today.

Joinville School of Technology (CTJ)

The Joinville Campus houses the Joinville School of Technology (CTJ), which has a single academic department – the Department of Mobility Engineering (EMB).

The School offers eight undergraduate programs: Aerospace Engineering; Automotive Engineering; Civil Infrastructure Engineering; Mechatronics Engineering; Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering; Railway and Metro Engineering; Science and Technology and Transportation and Logistics Engineering, as well as two master’s programs: Electronic Systems Engineering and Mechanical Engineering and Sciences.


The Joinville Campus is located at the Perini Business Park corporate condominium, in Joinville. It is composed of three buildings:

  • Building U, consisting of classrooms, faculty offices, auditorium, administrative offices and a library;
  • Building C, containing the University Restaurant, a communal area and bicycle stands; and
  • Building L: housing the teaching, research and outreach laboratories and the competition teams’ headquarters.

The Campus area also includes 771 parking spaces, covered (183, 54 m²) and uncovered (350 m²) bicycle stands, a sports court, a 1.700,00 m² test track, a wooded boulevard that gives access to the buildings, and a wooded public square with benches.

Regarding environmental issues and the use of new technologies, the campus has a rainwater harvesting system for flushing toilets, LED technology lighting, façades and ceilings designed to benefit from natural light, external sealing panels made of reinforced concrete to improve thermal and acoustic insulation, and a climatization system connected to a heat recovery mechanism that enables air renewal and temperature reuse.
