The Interuniversity Master's Degree in Applied Chemistry aims to provide students with advanced, specialized or multidisciplinary training in Chemistry through the acquisition of knowledge, the use of research techniques and a projection to the different applied sectors of Chemistry.
It constitutes an integrating initiative of the universities of Córdoba, Huelva, Jaén and Málaga, belonging to the first three to the Campus of International Excellence in Agro-Food of Andalusia (ceiA3). This initiative aims to take advantage of the effort and experience of professors and research groups that have previously participated in other masters, as well as the infrastructure available to achieve a high-level proposal for graduates in Chemistry.
The Master's Degree is basically oriented to the research training of students to join a doctoral program that will allow them to reach a higher and sufficient level to become accredited experts in basic and applied chemistry. In addition, future graduates of the Master will acquire the necessary capacity to address the resolution of problems faced by public and private chemical research centers related to the industrial sector.
The student who studies this Master will know directly and in depth, both in its theoretical and practical aspects, the fundamentals and chemical technologies necessary in the field of nanotechnology, the design of catalysts and their application for the development of industrial processes in a sustainable way, the analytical characterization of emerging pollutants, the characterization of biomolecules, the identification of biomarkers and their application in the current chemical laboratory governed by strict quality control standards. It will also allow specialization in fields such as environmental, food, biotechnology, catalysis or new materials, in which the application of new chemical technologies is a common and fundamental methodological tool for its development. On the other hand, the training provided by the Master will be very useful for the development of the IDI in the business sectors in which Chemistry is a decisive component. Hans Reniers / Unsplash
The training objectives of the Master can be summarized in:
- Provide students with access to a doctoral program with sufficient guarantees of basic and applied training in the field of Chemistry, which will continue to nurture in the future research groups with doctors who develop their activity in this field.
- Contribute to train specialists in Chemistry by completing the training of the Degree, which is one of the fundamental pillars in the development of new technological challenges.
- Promote the interaction of teachers and students of the Master among the universities involved, institutes and research centers and companies related to Chemistry.
The Master is aimed at graduates in Chemistry or other degrees related to Science and Engineering such as Pharmacy, Biology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering, Oenology, Food Science and Technology, Environmental Sciences, Marine Sciences , and other analogues .
Although the Master has an adequate research profile for the training stage prior to the doctorate, it also contemplates the necessary training for the projection to the social environment of the graduates based on the realization of internships in companies both in the industrial and teaching and management fields. On the basis of the specialized and multidisciplinary nature of the master's degree, the right to enter the labor market especially in relation to the various applied sectors of Chemistry.
