Chemistry

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Chemistry is a category of physical science that deals with the structure, composition, and various properties of matter. Some topics which chemistry aims to cover include the formation of chemical bonds, properties of atoms, and the intermolecular forces responsible for giving matter its unique properties.

Portugal is one of the warmest European countries. University programs are very affordable. In fact Portugal has one of the lowest living costs for students. Enjoy the the great beaches in Algarve or the old wings of history in the capital city of Lisbon.

Key learning outcomes The degree of "mestre" (master) in Chemical Engineering is awarded to those students that demonstrate, in this field, the ability to: 

 develop and enhance the knowledge obtained in the first cycle, in order to develop and apply that knowledge to original situations often in the context of research; 
 apply their knowledge and understanding and problem solving capacities to new and unfamiliar situations in wide multidisciplinary situations, although related to their area of studies; integrate knowledge, deal with complex matters, develop solutions or put forward opinions on situations of limited or incomplete information, including reflecting upon the implications and ethical and social responsibilities that result from both those solutions and opinions or indeed that condition them; 
 communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and reasoning that underly them, both to experts and non-experts, clearly and unambiguously; 
 develop competences that will enable them to benefit from self-oriented or autonomous lifelong learning. To complete the qualification, the student is required to pass all compulsory course units of the study plan. Occupational profiles of graduates The degree of "mestre" (master) in Chemical Engineering belongs to the education and training area of Technologies. Graduates are specialized to develop a professional activity within the profile of the programme. Access to further studies The degree of "mestre" allows to proceed to 3rd cycle studies (PhD), according to the Portuguese Higher Education System. Examination regulations, assessment and grading Examination and assessment are regulated by the IPB regulations. Qualification awarded (in original language) "Mestrado em Engenharia Química". Title of "Mestre". Level of qualification 2nd Cycle of Studies. EQF level 7. ISCED level 5. Recognition of prior learning Following the implementation of the Bologna Process and the consequent legislation regarding the mobility of students among degrees and higher education institutions, prior learning must be recognized and credited. The prior learning concept comprises all the previous learning/training undertaken in other higher education study cycles in national or international institutions (crediting of certified training), as well as previous professional experience and any post-secondary school training or education. As such, the IPB promotes the crediting of the student’s prior learning when arriving at the institution. 
Aiming at a quick and full integration of the student in his/her new education programme, the recognition procedures must be submitted when enrolling at the IPB.  Qualification requirements and regulations 4 Semesters (2 years). 20 Weeks of study, per semester, full-time (40 per year). 40 total Hours per week. 810 total Hours per semester (1620 per year). 120 ECTS Credits (30 per semester); 1 credit corresponds to 27 hours. It includes a scientific dissertation, a project work or a professional traineeship which will be concluded with a final report comprising 42 credits.
The holders of this qualification may apply to the Order of Engineers. The professional title of Engineer is awarded by this institution, according to its internal rules. Requirements The holders of a “licenciado” degree or legal equivalent, the holders of a foreign bachelor academic degree, and the holders of a relevant academic, scientific or professional curriculum vitae, may apply to the 2nd cycle of studies, as stated in the description of the Portuguese Higher Education System. Work Experience No work experience is required. Programme director Helder Teixeira Gomes (htgomes@ipb.pt). [-]
