My life in Universities.
Hello Readers, I’ll talk about Universities in Brazil and something about the education system and my experience about this issues.
In 1981, the student wanted to go to University had to do a written exam about all subjects learned in the fundamental and intermediate courses. (There are two parts in the Brazilian Education System before the University, funfamental with 9 years and intermediate with 3 years)
When the students signed up to do the written exam, they had to choose 3 options of University they want to ingress. If the student got a higher grade he/she could ingress at first option. The first option, the student put the government-funded University because they don’t have to pay to study.
In that time, the Computer Science was a branch of mathematic and only government-funded Universities had this course.
My first option was to UFRJ University, the second one was FAHUPE University (private) and third, I don’t remember.
Unfortunately, I hadn’t enough grade to ingress to UFRJ and I had to go to FAHUPE. The FAHUPE, didn’t have Computer Science, only pure mathematic and in 1982 I had started the course in pure math and I finished in 1986. This course gave me permission to teach math in fundamental and intermediate courses.
I didn’t give up the Computer Science, In 1986, I had started in my second job like a Trainee in System Analyst in the same time I started my first post graduation in Systems Analysis.
After this time I worked with a lot of technologies like Cobol, Basic, Pascal, Clipper, Powerbuilder, Oracle, Data warehouse, Business Intelligent well-know BI, Java and .Net. All this technologies applied in a Business Systems to support the directors and principals to make decisions in a lot of Companies, which I worked.
I should have done a Master's Degree in Software Engineering through this years, however, the Universities offer this course, want students dedication only to study. Well, I couldn’t left my job and gave up to make money to spend my time into a University even the government pay me to study, because the income less than half of salary.
In 2005, I decided to make other post graduation in Project Management Software.This decision was good, because I could update my Knowledge. Another point was, when I approached the University again, I found out the Master's Degree in Information Technology which accept professionals can share the time between Job and University.
I think this story is a lit bit confused. What’s the difference post graduation and Master's Degree here in Brazil? Post graduation is for the professional wish to specialize in some subject and have to write end term about this subject. Master's Degree, the students have to make research about some subject and write a thesis with scientific basis.
About the University, That’s all Dear Readers.
