Established in 2005, Universidade Federal do ABC (UFABC) - otherwise known as the Federal University of ABC - is based in Santo André, a municipality in the metropolitan region of São Paulo.

After completing their initial studies, students can then graduate with a bachelor's degree in Science and Technology, or they can choose to stay on for an additional engineering bachelor's. Master's degrees are also available.
