History of the Federal Goiás
The Federal Office for Education, Science and Technology of Goias state government for special treatment under the Ministry of Education, was created by Law No. 11,892on December 29, 2008, meeting a proposal from the federal government, which since 2003 edited new measures for vocational and technological education. It is an institution on par with the federal universities, which coordinates higher education, basic and professional, and several campus pluricurricular (integrated technical courses to high school, following the technical high school's top bachelors, degree, engineering and graduate), specializing in provision of vocational and technological education.
The history of the Federal Institute of Goiás has a long history, originated in the early last century, on September 23, 1909, when, through Decree No. 7566, then-President Nilo Pecanha created 19 Schools Apprentice Craftsmen , one in each state in the country In Goiás, the School was established in the former state capital, Vila Boa, Goiás city currently Then, the objective was to train students in courses and workshops for forging and blacksmithing, shoemaking, tailoring , carpentry and empalhação, saddlery and saddlery.
In 1942, with construction of Goiania, the school was transferred to the new capital, becoming the first stage of the City's cultural baptism. The institution received the name of the Technical School of Goiania, with the creation of technical courses in the industrial area, integrated into the school.
With the Law No. 3552 in 1959, the institution achieved the status of federal authority, acquiring autonomy, equity, financial, pedagogical and didactic-disciplinary, being named to the Federal Technical School of Goias, in August 1965.
In the late '80s, more precisely in 1988, the Federal Technical School of Goias expanded its presence in the state with the creation of the Teaching Unit Decentralized Jataí, now called Jataí campus.
Through the decree without number, 22 March 1999, the Federal Technical School of Goiás was transformed into the Federal Center for Technological Education of Goiás (CEFE-GO), a public institution of higher education and free, specialized in offering education technology at different levels and types of education, with priority in technology.
In 2006, through the Programme for the Expansion of the Federal Network of Professional and Technological Unit was created Decentralized Education Inhumas today Inhumas Campus. The continuity of this project resulted in the deployment of two more campusesin the second half of 2008, and another one in Itumbiara in Uruaçu. Early on, the population of cities was dealt with technical courses and higher in the technology sector, which led to the development and more skilled professionals in the region.
In the second phase of expansion started in 2007 under the theme "A technical school in each city hub of the country," is scheduled deployment of more than 150 new units of instruction, creating a total of 180 000 vacancies offered in vocational and technological education . The Federal Network for Technology Education will be equipped with 500 000 registrations by 2010 and 354 units installed throughout Brazil.
To further consolidate the process of technological evolution of professional education in the country and achieve the necessary structural conditions to educational and socioeconomic development, the federal Centers for Technical Education have been elevated to the category of the Federal Institutes of Education, Science and Technology in late 2008.
In Goiás, two institutions were created. Instituto Federal de Goias, formed by the campuses - old decentralized units - Goiania, Jataí Inhumas, Uruaçu Itumbiara Luziânia, Taiwan and Annapolis, and these three were established in June 2010, and the Federal Institute Goiano - made by fusing CEFETs of Rio Verde and Urutaí Agrotechnical Federal and School of Ceres, which led to the campuses of Rio Verde, Urutaí, Ceres, and Morrinhos Iporá.
These institutions were treated in the federal universities, with autonomy to create and extinguish courses, register diplomas, which will result in an expansion of supply availability and technical courses in high school and university, and stimulate applied research, cultural production, the entrepreneurship, and cooperative scientific and technological development.
The IFG throughout its history has been and remains the scene of political, artistic and cultural, reaffirming his vocation as a training institution of ideas, knowledge, artists, leaders and especially skilled and aware of their responsibilities to the life and society.
The Federal Institutes render service to the nation to qualify professionals for different sectors of the Brazilian economy, conduct research and develop new processes, products and services in collaboration with the productive sector. The IFG will continue to maintain the tradition of the Federal Technical School of Goiás and CEFET Goiás to offer free public education and quality for young people and workers in the state.
