University description (as per official university website)
The Faculty Center East started operations in 2000 with the offer of three courses: Engineering Automation and Control, Food Engineering and Production Engineering Civil. These courses were approved by the MEC in late 1999 and initially worked in the College of Education Center Valparaiso facility near the existing building.

The UCL has also offers postgraduate courses at the level of expertise in thematic areas related to graduation, such as Mechatronic Engineering, Security Engineering and Quality Management, among others. Detailed information about current programs available in Graduate Courses.
The history of the UCL is new but this time she also took steps to implement projects of research and extension. In the survey, with support from Petrobras, and the FAPES UCL's own, is already operating a laboratory in the area of Transport Phenomena developing projects in association with research groups of Petrobras, with the participation of teachers and students of the Faculty Fellows. To the extent there are ongoing projects that involve other local institutions (government, businesses, community associations), indicating the actual link to your UCL regional environment.
The Faculty is located in a region with a high rate of economic growth and the municipality of Serra, in particular, focused expression of international companies such as CVRD and the Tubarão Steel Company, becoming the largest industrial center in the Holy Spirit. Industrial districts of Civita I and II all hosted companies in several important areas of production, with remarkable growth in recent years the field of marble and granite. It is a region with intense movement of foreign trade and therefore a high standard of competition.
At the same time, as is common in the current Brazilian scenario, the region presents relevant social issues that unfold in the areas of education, environment, security and employability. So there are major challenges to be overcome and UCL intends to participate in this effort as part of their performance, together with government, businesses and institutions and community associations.
This picture above shows that the faculty, even in its brief history, has been seeking work and dedication to fulfill the mission that is assigned: to contribute to the development of the region through the provision of higher education, offering young people an opportunity to enable them to create and seize opportunities to work in this context of high qualification requirement for them to grow as professionals and citizens.
