The purpose of this Program is to train graduates of the highest level, suitable to independently carry out original research within their discipline, the results of which constitute a substantial contribution to frontier knowledge in physics. Such research work should generate results that are publishable in mainstream indexed journals.
People who are in possession of a Bachelor or Master of Science degree, Physical Mention or an academic degree or a professional title that includes a Bachelor's degree and who, in the opinion of the Academic Committee, accredits satisfactory previous training for the purposes and requirements of the Program.
Graduates will have a solid conceptual command of general physics, as well as an in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of their area of specialty. They will have developed skills to clearly and accurately present the acquired knowledge and the results of their research work, both verbally and in writing. They will have the power to work independently and in a group
