Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have the capacity to manage, analyse, synthesise, and update information. They will be able to organize and perform activities associated with biological analysis research. The programme will foment creativity, initiative, entrepreneurial spirit, and decision-making in students. This will enable them to solve problems in the field of biological analysis and to work as part of a team in a multidisciplinary environment. Students will also acquire an in-depth knowledge of analytical methodology, indication, diagnostic selection, and sources of error. Furthermore, they will know how to evaluate analytical results and their clinical interpretation. Finally, they will be able to draft reports and perform clinical consultations.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
