That the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem-solving capacity in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments from information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
That students know how to communicate their conclusions -and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that support them- to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way
That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.General CompetencesHaving acquired advanced knowledge and demonstrated, in a context of scientific and technological or highly specialized research, a detailed and well-founded understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects and of the work methodology in one or more fields of study
Being able to predict and control the evolution of complex situations through the development of new and innovative work methodologies adapted to the specific scientific / researcher, technological or professional field, generally multidisciplinary, in which they carry out their activity.
Be able to take responsibility for your own professional development and specialization in one or more fields of study.
Have the ability to solve problems that are unfamiliar, incompletely defined, and have competing specifications, considering possible solution methods, including the most innovative, selecting the most appropriate, and being able to correct the implementation, evaluating the different design solutions .
Apply knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and other natural sciences, obtained through study, experience, and practice, with critical reasoning to establish economically viable solutions to technical problems.
Carry out appropriate research, undertake the design and direct the development of engineering solutions, in new or little known environments, relating creativity, originality, innovation and technology transfer.
Knowing how to establish mathematical models and develop them using appropriate computing, as a scientific and technological basis for the design of new products, processes, systems and services, and for the optimization of others already developed.
Having the capacity for analysis and synthesis for the continuous progress of products, processes, systems and services using criteria of safety, economic viability, quality and environmental management.
Direct and organize companies, as well as production and service systems, applying knowledge and skills of industrial organization, commercial strategy, planning and logistics, commercial and labor legislation, financial and cost accounting.
Direct and manage the organization of work and human resources applying criteria of industrial safety, quality management, prevention of occupational risks, sustainability, and environmental management.
Direct and carry out the verification, control of facilities, processes and products, as well as certifications, audits, verifications, tests and reports.
Manage Research, Development and Technological Innovation, attending to the transfer of technology and property and patent rights.
Adapt to structural changes in society motivated by factors or phenomena of an economic, energy or natural nature, in order to solve the derived problems and provide technological solutions with a high commitment to sustainability.CurriculumCredit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasIn this Master, it is about providing a set of knowledge in Chemical and Process Engineering that is sufficient for engineers or graduates to have the possibility of developing their work when joining the industry or other fields of professional activity and / or delving into specific fields of Chemical and Process Engineering that, in many cases, serve as the basis for the preparation of the doctoral thesis.
