On how to get to Campinas and Unicamp

Campinas and Unicamp

Campinas, in Sao Paulo State, was founded on July 14, 1774, in the beginning as an outpost on the way to the provinces of Minas Gerais and Goias serving the "Bandeirantes" who were in search of precious minerals and Indian slaves. In the first half of the 19th century, Campinas became a growing population center, with many coffee, cotton, and sugarcane farms. Now it counts with more than 1,000,000 people and is a center of a big Metropolitan Area with 19 cities and more than 2.000,000 inhabitants. In the second half of the 19th century, with the abolition of slavery, farming and industrialization attracted many foreign immigrants to replace the lost manpower, mainly Italians, followed by the Portuguese, Spanish, Germans, and Japanese. Several high-tech companies are located in Campinas, now known as Brazil's Silicon Valley, counting with more than 30 of the 500 largest IT companies in the world.

Unicamp was officially founded on October 5, 1966, when the cornerstone was laid. Even compared with other Brazilian universities, the oldest of which was established 70 years ago, Unicamp can be considered a young institution and one that has already developed a strong tradition in education, research, and services to society.
