Animal Science

The Graduate Program in Animal Science (PPGCA) at the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR) started its activities in 2008 with the master’s program in Animal Science. In 2015, the PPGCA started the first class of the doctoral program in Health, Technology, and Integrated Animal Production. The program has achieved CAPES (Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior, agency of the Brazilian Ministry of Education) grade of 4 (very good) in Veterinary Medicine.

Goals

The PPGCA proposes to train researchers and professionals to work in different areas of animal science, as well as to develop scientific research, always aiming for an integration with society in order to respond in practice and theory to their demands; finally, one of the main goals of the PPGCA is to qualify professors. To this purpose, the program seeks to maintain a team of productive and active researchers in different fields of animal science, to generate knowledge in an integrated, comprehensive and complementary manner, with national and international recognition whereas giving priority to local and regional demands, as well as training highly qualified professionals. In this sense, the program welcomes students from various higher education backgrounds, such as veterinary, zootechnical, biological, biotechnological, pedagogical, psychological, pharmaceutical, and technological areas.

History

The Graduate Program in Animal Science (PPGCA) at the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR) completed its first decade in 2018. From its creation in 2008 until 2019, PPGCA has awarded 142 master’s and 17 doctoral degrees.

The offer of the master’s program in Animal Science was authorized by CAPES in Official Letter no. 53-12 in 2007 (CTC-CAA-CAPES), and the program started its activities in 2008 at the PUCPR campus in São José dos Pinhais (SJP) – PR. That year, the program had 9 permanent professors, a collaborating professor, and 12 students, covering two research areas: “Animal and Comparative Pathology, Surgery, and Clinic” and “Production and Technology of Animal Products” in the “Animal Health” specialization area. In 2010, the first 12 students who started the program in 2008 and 1 student who started in 2009 defended their theses. After the first four years of PPGCA existence, there was a need for changes owing to the maturation of the initial proposal and the bias of innovation perceived by the program’s professors. Thus, in 2012 PPGCA changed its specialization areas to “Health, Technology, and Animal Production” and included three research areas: “Animal Biotechnology, Production, and Reproduction,”; “Veterinary Clinic and Surgery”; and “Animal Food Science and Technology.” The program’s evolution culminated in the submission, in 2014, of an APCN (Proposal Applications for New Courses) for the creation of a Doctorate program. Owing to the prestige of PUCPR as a Higher Education Institution, available infrastructure, proposal characteristics, and the intellectual production of the faculty and students, the Doctorate proposal was approved in December 2014 (Proposal 1105/2014). In August 2015, the first class of the doctoral program in “Health, Technology, and Integrated Animal Production” (PPGSTP) started with 18 doctoral students. In April 2016, PPGCA was transferred to the PUCPR campus in Curitiba (PR). With the campus migration, PPGCA became part of the School of Life Sciences (ECV), allowing greater integration with other courses and programs in the areas of health and nature. This brought benefits to the PPGCA, including the possibility of sharing graduate courses, laboratory infrastructure, and research equipment, favoring interdisciplinarity and scientific collaboration between professors and greater visibility of the program by the institution’s academic community.

In terms of research area evolution and society’s demands for research on themes related to animal health, well-being, and animal-assisted interventions, there was a need to create a research area to house projects aligned with these topics. In 2019, a new research area was created in the PPGCA, and the other research areas in the program were revised and updated. Thus, the program currently has four research areas: 1) Biotechnology, Animal Production, and Reproduction, 2) Pathology, Clinic, and Veterinary Surgery, 3) Science and Technology of Animal Foods, and 4) Health and Wellness. Concomitantly with the review and increase in research areas, there was a need to increase the program’s faculty. Thus, the faculty is currently composed of 14 permanent professors and 2 collaborating professors.

 

In 2019, as a result of the program’s maturation and evolution, PPGCA started to offer the Interinstitutional Doctorate (DINTER) in cooperation with the Centro Universitário FACVEST – UNIFACVEST, located in the city of Lages-SC. The cooperation will enable scientific and academic improvement, to offer courses in loco, and teachers from that institution are to obtain the PhD degree at the end of the four-year program.

Thus, these actions constitute steps in the PPGCA journey in search of academic and scientific excellence, aligned with society’s demands, cooperation, and solidarity.

Curricular Structure

The PPGCA curricular structure includes two essential aspects: courses must support students’ research projects, and activities that directly involve research development, including scientific communication, should make up most of the total credit load.

In this sense, the PPGCA master’s and doctorate programs’ curriculum values student’s scientific and technical production generated during their program, with less emphasis on fulfilling credits in classroom courses. The curriculum seeks to offer integrated courses attuned to society’s demands, making it easier to comply with the course credits at other national or foreign institutions. It also seeks to introduce pedagogical and technological innovations in the curricular organization as well as align course topics with society and market demands.

Thus, the master’s program’s curriculum comprises 30 credits being 15 credits in courses, 5 credits in complementary activities, and 10 credits corresponding to thesis preparation and defense. The curriculum of the doctorate program consists of 50 credits being 20 credits in courses, 10 credits in complementary activities, and 20 credits corresponding to dissertation preparation and defense. It should be stressed that one credit corresponds to 15 hours.

The student can also obtain up to 50% of credits from other national and international programs pending validation by the faculty council.

Of all the courses offered, Scientific Methodology, Biostatistics and Experimentation, Update Seminars, Junior Seminar, Senior Seminar, and Teaching Practice are mandatory for the master’s program. For the doctoral program, the mandatory courses are Update Seminars, Junior Seminar, and Senior Seminar. In both programs, compliance with complementary activities is also mandatory.

Except for the mandatory courses, the other courses can be chosen by the student and the adviser regardless of the research area to which they are linked since some subjects are multidisciplinary and provide knowledge and skills that will be used in projects from different research areas.

PPGCA focuses on health, technology, and animal production. In this context, the program seeks to focus on different animal science areas, encompassing medical-investigative research that addresses etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, therapy, and prophylaxis of animal diseases. It also develops and applies biotechnology to improve animal production, reproduction, health and processes, products of animal origin, and research related to animal welfare and human-animal interactions and their effects on global health.

The program’s specialization area covers four research areas: 1) Biotechnology, Animal Production, and Reproduction, 2) Pathology, Veterinary Clinics, and Surgery, 3) Science and Technology of Animal Foods, and 4) Health and Welfare.

International cooperation is an important instrument for expanding the country’s scientific and technological competence. In PPGCA, internationalization can be considered one of the essential points for program evolution. It is demonstrated by PUCPR’s institutional policies, which permanently encourage internationalization. The program has developed several actions in its internationalization strategy to promote interaction with partners abroad.

The map below indicates the main countries where PPGCA has internationalization actions, which are marked with different colored “flags”: student mobility (sandwich doctorate/master, training, and internships) are marked in blue; teaching mobility (post-doctoral internship, training, and work assignments) are marked in red: teacher and student participation at conferences and other scientific events during the quadrennium 2017/2020 are marked in green.


 Official PPGCA International Cooperation Programs

The PPGCA has signed and implemented international cooperation agreements with international institutions. These consolidated research networks are carried out through technical visits, student mobility regarding exchanges for training and capacity building in laboratory or outpatient techniques, exchanges of concrete results in research, and technological innovation; always with professors’ and students’ participation.

PPGCA currently has an agreement, signed in 2015, with the University of Valencia, Spain, and an agreement for a doctorate in co-tutelage and double degree.

PPGCA also has a partnership with the Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agroalimentàries (IRTA) from Catalonia in Spain, signed in 2018. The Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agroalimentàries (IRTA) is a research institute that belongs to the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Food, and Environment Catalonia Parliament. IRTA has 14 research centers, including Mas de Bover (Animal Production and Nutrition), Monells (Animal Welfare), and Cerdanyola del Vallès (CRESA – Animal Health), the latter in association with the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona.


Postdoctoral internship for professors abroad

The post-doctoral internship is one of the most important internationalization tools, as it enables the construction of cooperation networks, contributes to the development of knowledge in areas not yet consolidated in the program, stimulates joint projects and publications between researchers from home and abroad, thereby expanding the possibilities of action, both for professors and students from the program.

PUCPR maintains a policy of teaching incentives for post-doctoral internships, regulated by Resolution No. 18/2008-CONSUN, which guarantees the benefit of leaving for professors in post-graduate programs for periods ranging from three months to one year, for conducting a post-doctoral internship with full salary.

More Information

In just over ten years of existence, PPGCA has obtained several achievements that demonstrate program quality and its scientific and social impact.

The program has qualified teaching staff, currently comprised of 14 permanent professors and two collaborating professors.

The program encourages student internationalization through a sandwich internship abroad and encourages participation in international events and conferences.

Since February 2020, a total of 142 master’s and 18 doctorate degrees have been awarded.

The program has partnerships and co-guardianship agreements with renowned foreign institutions.

Approximately 70% of the faculty has undertaken a post-doctoral internship abroad.

At least one international course is offered annually.

Approximately 77% of the faculty has projects in partnership with the private sector. The professors of the program currently have 14 patent filing requests, showing technological and innovation bias.

Since 2011, PUCPR has engaged in a project called Excellence in Stricto Sensu that is aimed at internationalizing the institution’s programs to achieve maximum scores of 6 and 7 and to promote transdisciplinarity and innovation in different areas of knowledge, especially in its strategic areas. The PIBIC master program is one its greatest differentials (it allows talented students to attend both undergraduate and graduate stricto sensu programs and develop part of their research in a highly qualified foreign institution) as well as being in harmony with society and focusing on innovation.

The institution must also be constantly attentive to the changing needs of the society, with alignment/realignment to the CAPES criteria and oriented to develop internationally, having internationalization as its main guide in the search for quality in teaching and research.

Every graduate program must meet the criteria set by their corresponding committee; therefore, each program strategic planning and operating criteria needs to be done accordingly.

Criteria for each area need to be discussed within the program annually so that all necessary and appropriate corrective actions can be taken during the four-year period. Each program is committed to structuring and readjusting its strategic planning annually in search of excellence. In addition, the programs are encouraged to rethink their lines of research in order to adapt to the rapid changes that may occur in international and national scenarios.

This graduate program’s dynamism and flexibility must always meet quality criterion both in master’s and doctoral training and in the development of research and innovation, essentially aiming at the improvement of society. Thus, an annual review of each program strategic planning is requested that contains the topics below at a minimum:

  • i. Mission and vision of the program;
  • ii. Summarized annual opinion produced by an external evaluator; the annual evaluation by an external member is an institutional practice conducted since 2006, which allows for the annual performance of each program to be assessed according to the area criteria;
  • iii. Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and risks (preparation of a SWOT matrix showing external and internal factors) considering the goals for the current and next four years;
  • iv. Goals (measurable objectives) established for the consolidation and development of strengths and improvement of weaknesses;
  • v. Actions (processes) necessary to achieve the objectives, people in charge, and monitoring instruments; in this topic, the coordinator and the institution should get involved to consider resizing the faculty and the student body, criteria for accreditation/re-accreditation, infrastructure, selection process, strategies to increase fundraising, and citations and innovation, among other items;
  • vi. Preliminary text of the program’s self-assessment describing the last four years containing at least the following information: stages of the self-assessment process; analysis of results and achievement of objectives; necessary actions for its consolidation and internationalization;

The IDP (Institutional Development Plan) document presents the strategic plans of all the programs aligned with the institutional planning, containing the Mission, Vision, SWOT Matrix, Canvas, and road map, and providing information on the needs and intentions of the programs for the 2017–2020 and 2021–2024 quadrennium of the CAPES evaluation.
