The Master of Science in Science and Technology Geological lasts two years and confers the academic title of master's degree. For graduation, students must obtain 120 credits.

The ordinary period for the conduct of educational activities is established for each AA between 1 October and 30 June. The educational activities each year is divided into two semesters: usually the first starts the first week of October, according to the first week of March.

For students engaged in part-time must attend at least for the practical-applicative activities. The signatures of the frequency control is by the individual teacher.

The degree program is structured with a first year in which they are addressed teachings characterize the main scientific areas (SSD) of Geology, by GEO / GEO 01/08. The teachings of the second year round areas of Earth Sciences with the teachings of integrative disciplines which allow to give students a broader view of the scope of Earth Sciences.

There will be 12 credits of educational activities chosen by the student. In addition, 6 credits are dedicated to training activities to be carried out in public and / or private organizations to acquire and / or improve knowledge about the educational objectives of the degree course. The final exam consists in the presentation, in open court before a Commission, a report drawn up by the student.
