PPG PROFÍSICA is located on Rodovia Jorge Amado, between the cities of Ilhéus and Itabuna, in Bahia. The location is privileged, and therefore, this highway is informally known by some as the “Highway of Knowledge,” where various educational, scientific, teaching, and extension institutions, such as UESC itself, the Federal University of Southern Bahia - UFSB, the Federal Institute of Bahia - IFBA, the Social Service of Industry and the National Service for Industrial Learning - SESI/SENAI, and CEPLAC are located.

Additionally, the cities of Itabuna and Ilhéus can be considered very pleasant to live in due to their easy access to coastal beaches, being immersed in the Atlantic Forest, and having an economically accessible cost of living compared to other states. Ilhéus also has a certain university town dynamic due to UESC's history, which initially opened its doors to professors from other states and countries to strengthen its academic staff and improve the quality of local education.

We encourage you to learn more about the Graduate Program in Physics (PROFÍSICA), the State University of Santa Cruz (UESC), and Southern Bahia!

We are available to answer any questions and provide more information.
