The classes may take place with the presence of the professor at the center, or with their transmission by video conference to the centers involved. For the remaining course load, with distance mode, students are provided with a virtual teaching and learning environment, whose subject contents are available, as well as the activities and mechanisms for interaction between students and professors of the subjects.

The Professional Master's in Public Administration in the National Network (Profiap) from the Federal Technological University of Paraná (UTFPR) is a Master's course offered in the Professional modality. The Professional Master's (MP) is a Graduate Studies modality aimed at training professionals in the various areas of knowledge, through the study of techniques, processes, or themes that meet any demand in the labor market. 

Professional Master's courses were regulated by Decree MEC Nº 389, of March 23, 2017 and Decree CAPES Nº 131, of June 28, 2017. Its objective is to contribute to the national productive sector in order to add a higher level of competitiveness and productivity to companies and organizations, whether public or private. Consequently, proposals for new courses in the Professional Master's program must present a curricular structure that emphasizes the articulation between updated knowledge, mastery of the relevant methodology and application oriented to the specific professional field. For this, a portion of the faculty must consist of professionals recognized in their areas of knowledge for their qualification and outstanding performance in fields that are relevant to the course proposal. The final paper of the course must always be linked to real problems in the professional student's area of activity and in accordance with the nature of the area and the purpose of the course. It can be presented in different formats. For this reason, PROFIAP has required the student to deliver a Technical Product, along with the deposit of his/her thesis in the UTFPR Library Repository System. This Technical Product, which can be a proposal for intervention, normative or process, among others, summarizes the conclusions of the student's thesis and presents the result to the public manager of the Institution or Body in which the master's student is inserted, or where he/she conducted his/her research and the theoretically based result in his/her thesis. 

These specificities of the Professional Master's degree require that monitoring and evaluation be done based on different criteria, defined by the evaluation areas, and carried out by a specific subcommittee, even if they are carried out concurrently with academic programs.

In order to guarantee the quality of Professional Masters, operational criteria and standards are necessary to direct and control their implementation and development. The authorization, recognition and renewal of recognition of professional master's courses are obtained from the results of the monitoring and evaluation conducted by CAPES in accordance with the requirements provided for in the legislation - Resolution CNE/CES nº 1/2001, amended by Resolution CNE/CES nº 24/2002.

All the legislation that governs the Graduate studies is gathered in the CAPES specific Legislation page, in part-time mode.
