IPEN is responsible for the graduate program in the nuclear area at University of São Paulo: the Nuclear Technology Program IPEN/USP. Since its creation, in 1976, the Program was evaluated with grade A by the Federal Government Evaluation (CAPES), the highest in this classification. In 2003, CAPES changed the evaluation criteria; since then, it has been considered a Program of Excellence, with grade 6. Levels 6 and 7 are granted only to those programs having internationally recognized expertise. Level 6 was maintained in the last evaluation considering the period 2010-2012. Along its 40 years, the Nuclear Technology Program awarded 2,582 titles: 1,721 masters and 861 doctoral degrees.
