São Carlos is located in the center of the State of São Paulo, 250 km from the capital. It is near Araraquara, Rio Claro and Riberão Preto, a composition of cities that makes this macro-region one of the most developed areas of the State. São Carlos stands-out as the “Capital of Technology” in the interior of the state. This title was conjured up mainly because the city includes the School of Engineering in the University of São Paulo (USP) and UFSCar. Its scientific and technological development characteristics are reinforced by the presence of the Advanced Technology Foundation (ParqTec) and two units of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) São Carlos includes important industrial sectors in the area of motors, compressors and appliances, in addition to textile, packing, machine, paint, optic and laser equipment companies, as well as many medium and small size companies belonging to a wide array of production sectors. Technology based companies stand out for their innovations. Owing to the intense activity in the industrial, technical, scientific and educational sector, the city has a solid infra structure in the hotel, commerce, comestible and tourism areas, highlighting the historical farm estates open to the public.
