Eldorado aims to promote education, training and inclusion through free courses focusing on the intermediate and upper levels. We want to encourage the interface between school and work and make our students feel challenged to develop their skills and, through them, think of IT solutions.
Eldorado’s Department of Education was created in 1999, starting its activities jointly to the establishment of the Institute as a whole, winning highlighted numbers in different projects of professional training in the area of Information Technology.
Since 1999, approximately 11,900 students were trained in various topics in the field of Information and Communication Technology, such as integrated circuits design, acceptability of electronic assemblies, database and computer systems, among other topics, distributed in 12 educational projects in partnership with companies.
Overwhelmingly, these educational projects were implemented in partnership with more than 15 Brazilian universities, including the creation of laboratories of optimization and infrastructure.
The websites dedicated to the enrollment in projects of continuing education have reached over 48,000 students interested. Of these, 25,800 students accessed the courses in e-learning modality in ICT topics. Since 2009, over 1,500 students have joined the courses with methodology based on synchronous and asynchronous activities of distance learning.
In the training of people with disabilities (PwD) there were more than 22 classes with different disabilities – physical, visual, hearing and cognitive, with 311 students graduated in ICT topics.
Check on this page some of the programs conducted by Eldorado through its Department of Education and Innovation.
In partnerships with companies, educational institutions and with the government, we design, execute and manage projects of technological professional training with the following characteristics:
- Meeting the market needs;

Brazil, nowadays inserted in the global market of technology in a particularly sharp way, disputes job positions with emerging countries like India, China and Russia. Considering that knowledge has no borders, it becomes essential the dissemination of cutting edge technology and the competitive training for the positioning of the Brazilian professional in this globalized world.
Oficina do Futuro is a program composed of training projects held in partnership with companies of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and education institutions and it aims to promote professional training of people from intermediate and upper levels in the area of information systems, in order to prepare them for taking advantage of the opportunities identified in the strategic positioning of Brazil in the world technological scenario.
The Oficina do Futuro program includes training with modular courses in class and remote modes, with the most modern techniques of market and access to sophisticated laboratories, prepared to support the technologies involved and with accessibility for people with disabilities.
The Oficina do Futuro program offers free courses, with an average duration of a month and a half each one, in the presential and distance learning modalities. The in class courses are held in the Eldorado Research Institute plant, in Campinas – SP.

Founded in 2007, the PwD Workshop of the Future is an initiative of the Eldorado Research Institute, in partnership with companies and institutions linked to the theme of the PwD that believe in the potential of people with disabilities and in their integration in the brazilian market of information and communication technology.
Hundreds of people have already passed through the technical and behavioral training activities compatible with the requirements of the market. The activities are free to the participants.
Increasing the amount of people with disabilities (PwD) trained in technical subjects, complemented by behavioral topics in corporative environment, so that they can take advantage of the opportunities offered by the job market.
The project is directed to people with disabilities who are, at least, 18 years old, who have previous knowledge in informatics and willingness to participate in the presential courses scheduled.
The inscription is the beginning of the process of selection of candidates for training activities of the PcD Workshop of the Future Project. As a part of the selection process, the candidates will be invited for a personal interview.
Selected applicants will be invited to participate in the training activities planned.

Born in 2011, the DNA Tec project is a pioneering initiative of Eldorado Institute that has the purpose of promoting professional training of students for job opportunities in careers of Information Technology (IT). The project focused on technical high school students and higher education students from courses in the field of Exact Sciences.
The training activities were free with theoretical and practical lessons related to careers in IT, providing to the student the vision of solutions and practical understanding about the platforms C #, C ++, Java, Telecom and Android for applications in devices such as cellphones and tablets.
- 900 people registered;
- 1700 participants of Distance Education on Logic Programming and Object Orientation;
- 307 people graduated in the EAD course participating in the selection process for the in class courses;
- 66 graduated students from the Java C + +, C # and Telecom in class courses;
- 34 students approved for Basic Android course.
The instructors of the courses are professionals from Eldorado, qualified in their respective areas of competence, who were concerned in adapting the material and teaching the classes focusing on the real needs of the technology market. The differential of this project is its focus on training professionals, considering that the technology market has shortage of skilled labor. Students trained can then be absorbed by the Eldorado and by the market in general.
DNA Tec was also a great movement of career plan in Eldorado, because it generated satisfaction to the professionals involved. They were able to perform other activities in addition to their technical area, which represents a great scenario of opportunities.
Held in 2013, directed to young professionals and students of technical and higher education in Brasilia, with approximately 700 people enrolled and 519 students, the IT Capital was a completely free training program in the area of information technology that covered topics such as logic programming, Java, C #, C + +, Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone, in its online and in class phases in Brasília unit. All modules were taught by professionals from the own Eldorado, which is a reference in the field of research and development in IT and Telecom areas.
In the distance phase, with a duration of 15 hours, students studied Logic Programming and Object Orientation. “The objective of this phase is to level up the students to attend the second part of the course, then, in class and also free”, says Rogério Luis Almeida, Eldorado’s manager of Education.
In the second phase, more than 50 students approved attended the presential courses held in Eldorado’s unit in Brasília for about 2 months, in modules of 36 hours dedicated to the platforms C #, C + +, Java, Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone. “The greatest differential of the course, for young people, is living with issues that only happen within the environment of a company. Moreover, some of the topics covered, as the Android operational system, not even are part of the curriculum of the courses of information technology yet”, argues Luis Rogério Almeida.
The TechBox project aims to lead the company’s experience to the university, complementing the students training with current issues in the world of IT, it is destined to technical schools and universities that have courses in the field of Exact Sciences, in particular data processing, computer science and systems analysis.
Its objective is to lead to the student languages and practices of software development which are present in the job market in IT and that are not part of the curriculum of technical schools and universities yet. The TechBox is a project that can be replicated in institutions of technical and higher education. The student can benefit himself especially with the funding model through the Informatics Law in partnership with companies from the IT area.
The TechBox covers topics that are still not covered by the curriculum of undergraduate courses, such as Linux and methodologies of software development, Android, among others.
