      One needs to complete high school, then to get a college degree (Bachelors). Next, one needs either a Masters degree (MSc) or a PhD. This process takes close to 10-15 years. This time is used to ensure that all the fundamental knowledge has been learned so that the scientist can apply all this knowledge to a new question.
