Technical Services and Tests Center[edit]

Technical Services and Tests Center - Engines and Vehicles Division

The Center was established in 1966 with the purpose of meeting the needs of the industries regarding products and processes. A laboratory infrastructure was put in place in order to make tests and analyses. In a second phase it started providing technological support to companies to improve processes, products and services, a technology development center in several different fields and offering the following services to manufacturing and services companies:[9]

  • applied technology research;
  • product and process development;
  • tests, analyses, expert opinion reports and certification;
  • projects, consulting, advisory services and planning;
  • specialized training.

The Technical Services and Tests Center has a customer service structure in place through its Technical Divisions established by fields: Food Engineering, Biochemistry, Automation and Control, Electronic, Civil, Mechanical Engineering, Metrology, Microwave Technology, Telecommunications, Engines and Vehicles, Chemistry and Paints, Road Signaling and Safety. The technical staff at the Center comprises experienced professionals with different degrees, qualified on different areas, and the Center also counts on IMT University faculty as experts and consultants. The participation of IMT University students in activities at the Research Center provides them with the opportunities to participate in vocational internships.[10]
