  Brief history of basic sciences at UNCuyo  

The particular history of the “basic sciences” or “pure sciences” in the UNCuyo dates back to the very dawn of our University. However,   only six years since the University Assembly approved, on March 31, 2014, unanimously, the transformation of what was the Institute of Basic Sciences   (ICB) in the current Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences.

  The creation of the ICB in 1992 by decision of the High Council of UNCUYO is linked to the need to cover the gap generated in 1973 when the National Universities of San Luis and San Juan were created   in whose academic units, as a result of the dissolution of the Department of Scientific Research (DIC) in 1956, were the only activities in Cuyo of specific teaching and research in biology, mathematics, physics and earth and atmó sciences ; Sphere.   The DIC, which was founded in Mendoza in 1949 by rector Ireneo Cruz from his predecessor, the Institute of Pure Sciences, was dissolved by UNCuyo's military intervention in 1956   the result of the previous year's coup d'état.
