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 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 latest knowledge and 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.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.SaidasGraduate students will have excellent expectations of employability at the end of the master's degree, and / or after expanding their training with a doctorate in a similar multidisciplinary field. Thus, although the master has a preferably research orientation, its graduates will also be able to opt for a more professional path, linked to the labor market, in different sectors with great projection (R&D and production laboratories in the chemical sectors, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, nanotechnological, etc). Likewise, the professional profile associated with the master will also be suitable for the integration of graduates in other types of companies dedicated to specialized consulting, or to promote entrepreneurship and participation in the creation of new technology-based companies.
