[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT:
The courses of environmental engineering have increasingly become more common in Brazil. In spite of the common legislation that defines the subjects of basic, professional and specific graduation, there has been a variation in the focus given in the list of subjects of these courses, which have been strongly influenced by the vocation of the Institution of Undergraduate Teaching (IES). The objective of this essay is to present the structure, the curricular emphasis and the approaches used by the pedagogic project of the environmental engineering of UNIPINHAL, from Espírito Santo do Pinhal – SP. There are two curricular emphases that guide the course: technology for the environment and environmental planning and managing. These emphases have been given in a way to connect subjects, research, laboratories and extension projects, showing the vocation of the region and of the course, which is strongly agricultural.
