Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences

The Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences (FCEN, for its Spanish acronym) educates professionals with a sound knowledge of Biology, Physics, Geology, Mathematics, and Chemistry.
The main facilities of the School are located in UNCuyo´s campus, in the city of Mendoza, in Park General San Martín. In addition to this, the School, has 4 branches in 4 districts of the province of Mendoza: General Alvear, Malargüe, San Martín, Tupungato.
Each degree course starts with 2-years Basic Cycle (common to all courses) followed by a 3-year Specialization.
The subject of the Basic Cycle are taught in coordination with other UNCuyo degree courses taught at the School of Engineering, School of Industry-Applied Sciences, School of Agricultural Sciences and the Balseiro Institute.
