The program has a multidisciplinary nature and covers theoretical and experimental, analytical and empirical, basic and applied aspects. The graduate program involves all fields of science and engineering, so the program accepts graduates of Masters of Engineering, Master of Science (Chemistry, Physics and related), and interested in the area of materials and that meet the requirements of entry.
The candidate to enter the program must:
Present a degree, or examination certificate, of a master's degree in Chemistry, Physics, Engineering or related area.
Comply with the requirements stipulated in the Regulation of Postgraduate Studies of UNISON.
Deliver in writing the preliminary draft of the thesis in the established format and defend it before an evaluation committee appointed ex-profeso by the Academic Committee of the Postgraduate Program.
Attend an interview with the evaluation committee appointed ex-profeso by the Academic Committee of the Postgraduate.
The weighting (in percentage) for these selection criteria are the following:
