Nanoscience, Materials and Processes: Chemical Technology at the Frontier Master Programme
The aim of this programme is to train new professionals in the field of nanotechnology, materials and chemical engineering. It is of particular interest for graduates in any of the branches of the experimental sciences and technologies (chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, biotechnology, physics, quantum chemistry, biological chemistry, microbiology, etc.) and it clearly prepares them for future research.
The students will acquire the skills required for them to join universities, research institutes, industry and services with a strong sense of innovation, development and entrepreneurial vision.
Graduates in the University Master's Degree in Nanoscience, Materials and Processes: Chemical Technology at the Frontier are capable of working in:
- Research at universities and research institutes. The master's degree is a requirement for being admitted to a PhD programme and the key to a future career as a researcher.
- Research, development and innovation in industries based on new scientific and technical knowledge (biotechnology, microelectronics, telecommunications, energy storage, new materials, etc.) and traditional industries (chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical, ceramics, textiles, etc.) interested in innovation.
- Management, control and strategic planning of nanotechnological techniques, products and processes in the electronics industry, telecommunications, biomedicine, biotechnology, pharmacology, etc.
The Master’s Degree is designed for candidates holding a bachelor’s degree in any of the branches of the experimental sciences and technologies: chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, biotechnology, physics, materials, quantum chemistry, biological chemistry, microbiology, etc.). It clearly prepares students for future careers in research.

Official university degrees in the scientific-technological disciplines and the health sciences.
As well as the compulsory documentation required for pre-enrolment on the programme, students must also submit the following documents:
- Transcript of records of the University degree that gives access to the master
- Letter of motivation/Declaration of Intent
- Accreditation of knowledge of English
The selection of pre-registered students will take into account the following criteria:
- Suitability of the access degree: Up to 20 points. Degrees will be graded using the following scale:
a. Graduates in the field of engineering, natural sciences and health sciences: up to 20 points.
b. Other: 0 points.
- Transcript of records of the university degree that gives access to the master: up to 40 points.
- Higher competence in English than the minimum required (Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages or equivalent). In the unlikely event that the student cannot demonstrate this level, there will be an oral interview in which the reading, writing and listening level will be assessed): up to 20 points.
- Other training (courses, seminars and other training activities, supported by the adequate accreditation documents) relevant to the content of the master’s degree: up to 10 points.
- Extended visits to English-speaking countries (at least 12 weeks, accredited by the appropriate documents): up to 10 points.
- However, when there is no shortage of places on the course, students may be admitted without being prioritized on merit.
