Federal University of ABC (UFABC, Brazil) was born in 2006 rooted in an innovative interdisciplinary pedagogical plan. It has no departments, fostering interaction between academic members from different backgrounds.
Moreover, undergraduate freshmen are admitted into Interdisciplinary Bachelor’s Degrees, in Science and Technology (BC&T) and Science and Humanities (BC&H). At the core of the interdisciplinary experiences, students can enjoy the flexibility and freedom to build their academic pathways throughout the programs offered by the university, thus behaving as entrepreneurs of their own careers. Our main goal is to enhance independent thinking and risk-taking.
