University of VigogoalsTo train professionals capable of competing in such dynamic areas as the chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical, agri-food, phyto and biosanitary industries, as well as in the production of new materials, in environmental control, in analysis and quality control, and in the field of The renewable energies.
Provide advanced specialized training, mainly in instrumental techniques, that is useful to be able to opt for jobs in the public and private sectors.
To be an instrument of continuous training for professionals from the different fields of Chemistry.
Provide advanced theoretical and experimental training, which allows them to access a doctoral thesis in Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry or Organic Chemistry.Basic skillsPossess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context.
That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of ​​study.
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on 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.CurriculumSpecialties or itineraries:
Research orientationSpecialty in Chemistry of the Natural Environment
Synthetic Chemistry Specialty
Specialty in Biological Chemistry
Nanomaterials and New Materials Specialty
Specialty in Advanced Analytical TechniquesProfessional orientationSpecialty in Industrial ChemistryStudents must pass the subjects of the Common Module (15 credits), 21 credits of optional subjects and a master's thesis of 24 credits.
In the Research Orientation the student will compulsorily take the practical subject Initiation to Research (6 ECTS) and another 15 ECTS freely chosen from the modules: Natural Environment Chemistry; Synthetic Chemistry; Biological Chemistry; Nanochemistry and New Materials; and Advanced Analytical Techniques. To obtain a specialty for this orientation, they must take the 15 ECTS within the module of the chosen specialty; otherwise, they will obtain the qualification through the research orientation without specialty: in this case the student also has to take the subject "Initiation to research".
In the Professional Orientation, the student will compulsorily take the subject Project Management (3 ECTS) and another 18 ECTS chosen from the Chemistry and Industrial Economics Module.
In the event that a student wants to study more than one specialty, it would not be necessary for them to take the common module or the TFM again.
Credit 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.SaidasThis master's degree, in addition to allowing students to start their research career, is indicated to train professionals capable of competing in areas such as: the chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical industry, production of new materials, agri-food, environmental control and study, analysis and quality control, phytosanitary and biosanitary and in the field of renewable energies.
