In case of any extraordinary activity that requires more space (as with the mini-courses offered by foreign researchers), there is still the use of the laboratories shared with the undergraduate students (one with 60 seats and another one with 40). In addition, the PPGE students’ study room (with 40 seats) is fully equipped with modern computing resources (computers, servers, software, internet, database, online journals, routers, etc.), and is also used as a computer lab. All rooms are quiet and in a suitable space for the collection and the construction of knowledge.

In addition, the faculty and students of the PPGE have access to modern servers, which increase the data processing capacity and modeling necessary to write scientific articles, research reports, and the theses and dissertations of the program.
