Jaume I UniversitygoalsTrain the student for research in the field of theoretical and computational chemistry. This will facilitate access to the Doctorate in the areas of chemistry, physics, life sciences or materials sciences and, in turn, the possibility of becoming a professor at a university or a researcher at any research institution.
As experts in computational techniques, students will come out prepared to apply any of the scientific codes available on the market or to develop new ones. Your skills will be well suited to the design of molecules, aggregates, and atomic and molecular processes. Therefore, they will be good candidates for jobs in the pharmaceutical industry, petrochemical companies, and the new materials industry. They also have a suitable profile to work profitably in any company as computer experts (finance and economics, computing, information technology, data mining, consulting in decision and optimization problems, statistics, research and development, etc.) .General CompetencesAbility to initiate research and to participate in research projects that can culminate in the preparation of a doctoral thesis.
Ability to integrate in multidisciplinary work groups in which theoretical and computational chemistry are essential tools
Communication skills for the dissemination of results and applications of theoretical and computational chemistry.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.SaidasThis master enables to develop doctoral theses in Theoretical Chemistry and Molecular Modeling: fields such as chemistry, physics, life sciences or materials sciences; and also in applications to very diverse fields: chemical reactivity, spectroscopy, catalysis, bioinformatics, materials science, etc., of professional interest for the pharmaceutical, petrochemical and new materials industries.
