What does it consist of?
The main objective of this master is to offer the student advanced training, specialized and multidisciplinary, aimed at promoting their initiation in research tasks in the field of theoretical and computational chemistry. Computational modeling on a molecular scale has been constituted, over the last twenty years, as a tool that covers, in a transversal way, many areas of knowledge: from biochemistry to new materials, going through all the disciplines of chemistry and emerging areas as nanoscience.
Computational simulations have become an important branch that gives rise to a third pillar of science that allows theoretical and experimental studies to overcome the limitations inherent in them. This has led to a growing demand for skilled personnel trained in these fields, a demand that not only comes from the academic world, but also from the industry: more and more companies consider modeling at a molecular scale as an essential tool.
What will you learn?
As experts in computational techniques are prepared to apply any scientific code available in the market or to develop new codes.
Their abilities are very well adapted to the design of molecules, of atomic and molecular aggregates and to the study of chemical processes.
What can you do when you're finished?
They are good candidates for jobs in the pharmaceutical industry, petrochemical companies and new materials industries. This master gives access to the doctorate in the areas of chemistry, physics, life sciences and materials science, which can provide a good opportunity to become professors or researchers in any research institution.
Access to other studies and professional opportunities
Doctorate in the areas of chemistry, physics, life sciences and materials science.
Structure of the studies
It is a master's degree of 120 ECTS credits to be completed in two academic years (60 ECTS credits / course), organized as follows:
Module 1 (1st year, 60 ECTS):
- Leveling course (10 ECTS)
- Foreign language course (5 ECTS)
- Compulsory subjects (30 ECTS)
- Optional subjects (15 ECTS)
The first 15 ECTS are carried out in the UIB, with the remaining 45 ECTS carried out in an intensive course of 4 weeks in one of the Spanish universities registered in the consortium.
Module 2 (2nd year, 60 ECTS):
- Compulsory subjects (30 ECTS)
- Final Master's Project (30 ECTS)
The first 30 ECTS are carried out through an intensive course of 4 weeks in one of the 47 European universities attached to the consortium.
Admission profile and admission criteria
Students who can:
- Have a degree in Chemistry, in Physics or in Materials Science, or any other equivalent level if the legislation of the corresponding European country admits it. Other scientific degrees may be admitted, provided that the student adapts his basic training under the supervision of a tutor.
- An internationally recognized certificate of proficiency in English equivalent to TOEFL with a minimum qualification of 213/500, or an IELTS with a minimum qualification of 6.
As it is clear from the admission criteria, the student is required to have sufficient knowledge of the English language to be able to follow the teaching of the intensive course of the second year of the master's degree which will be done in that language.
It also offers the possibility of adapting the level of the student to the minimum requirements of training to continue the studies of the master, through leveling courses in the first year for a total of 15 ECTS credits.
The selection of students who meet the requirements 1) and 2) will be carried out by the International Committee on the following bases:
- The CV
- A letter of motivation.
- The name of two people who can be contacted as a reference.
