The normal extent for obtaining the Master's Degree is two years. In order to achieve the final title, the student must have acquired 120 credits (CFU). Each credit corresponds to 25 hours of student work.

 The two academic years path (2020-2022) is organized in 4 semesters. The fourth semester is devoted to preparing the Master Thesis. Students can choose to carry out their thesis project at the Department of Physics and Geology of this University or to apply for a stage in Industries, Research Centers and foreign Universities (in the frame of the Erasmus Program). In all the cases the final dissertation of the MSc Thesis will be defended at the Perugia University with at least a tutor from the Perugia teaching staff.

The educational activities during the 2 academic years (2020-2021 and 2021-2022) are divided into two semesters, as follows:
