Doctorate in Sciences, Specialization in Physics




4 años


The Doctoral Program in Sciences with a Specialization in Physics (DCMF) was created in order to advance the development of science at UCN, and particularly postgraduate teaching in the Department of Physics. In order to achieve this, a series of obligatory doctoral-level courses has been designed in order to strengthen the research carried out by the Department of Physics and Institute of Astronomy through the supervision of doctoral theses.

This academic program requires exclusive dedication.
