Career opportunities

Graduates in the University Master's Degree in Nanoscience, Materials, and Processes: Chemical Technology at the Frontier are capable of working in:

  • Research at universities and research institutes. The master's degree is a requirement for being admitted to a Ph.D. program and the key to a future career as a researcher
  • Research, development, and innovation in industries based on new scientific and technical knowledge (biotechnology, microelectronics, telecommunications, energy storage, new materials, etc.) and traditional industries (chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical, ceramics, textiles, etc.) interested in innovation
  • Management, control and strategic planning of nanotechnological techniques, products, and processes in the electronics industry, biomedicine, biotechnology, pharmacology, etc.

Admission

The Master's Degree is aimed at graduates in scientific-technological disciplines or the health sciences. Therefore the Master’s Degree is designed for students coming from any of the branches of the experimental sciences, health, and technologies, with strong inclination and motivation for cutting-edge research.

Specific documentation required

As well as the compulsory general documentation required for pre-enrolment on the program, you must also submit the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation/declaration of intent for academic coordination.
  • Proof of higher competence in English than the minimum required (Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages or equivalent). In the unlikely event that the student cannot demonstrate this level, there will be an oral interview in which the reading, writing and listening level will be assessed).

Optionally, you can also submit other training relevant to the content of the master's degree (courses, seminars and other training activities, supported by the adequate accreditation documents) and Extended visits to English-speaking countries (at least 12 weeks, accredited by the appropriate documents).

Selection criteria

  • Suitability of the access degree: Up to 20 points. Degrees will be graded using the following scale:
    • Graduates in the field of engineering, natural sciences, and health sciences: up to 20 points.
    • Other: 0 points.
  • Transcript of records of the university degree that gives access to the master: up to 40 points.
  • Higher competence in English than the minimum required (Level B1 or equivalent). In the unlikely event that the student cannot demonstrate this level, there will be an oral interview in which the reading, writing and listening level will be assessed): up to 20 points.
  • Other training (courses, seminars, and other training activities, supported by the adequate accreditation documents) relevant to the content of the master’s degree: up to 10 points.
  • Extended visits to English-speaking countries (at least 12 weeks, accredited by the appropriate documents): up to 10 points.

However, when there is no shortage of places on the course, students may be admitted without being prioritized on merit.
