The Graduate Program in Animal Science of the Veterinary School of UFMG is made up of the masters degree, since 1969, and the doctoral degree, formally established in March 2007. Both the masters and doctoral degrees have a grade 4 with Capes (Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education- Personnel).
The objective is to contribute to build knowledge and practices in the field of Zoo Technology, producing, innovating, preserving and disseminating knowledge. At the masters and doctoral level, the program provides training to teachers and researches committed to ethics, work and scientific development, prepared to apply sciences in the interpretation and solution of problems, with economic, environmental, technological and social results.
This can be done in three Areas of Concentration: Animal Genetics and Breeding, Animal Nutrition and Feeding and Animal Production, each with different lines of research. The faculty is made up mainly of teachers from the Department of Zoo Technology of the School of Veterinary Science, including full and joint professors, as well as invited professors.
