The Master’s Degree Program in Applied Physics comprehends the undertaking of disciplines, activities, researches and the elaboration of a Master’s Degree Thesis.

The completion of the necessary disciplines is expressed by means of credit units, and each credit corresponds to 15 class hours. The Master’s Degree program requires a minimum of 24 credits. The requirements for being granted the degree of Master are:
