Master’s (12 to 36 months) and Doctorate (24 to 72 months)

In November 1971 the “Gleb Wataghin” Institute of Physics was considered a center of excellence by the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development and to be of the necessary standard to provide graduate courses in physics at master’s and doctoral levels.
