Main focus

; “Specialisation in Production, Trials and Quality Graduates of this master’s programme will have an in-depth knowledge of the principal processes, tools, and methodologies used in test laboratories and/or industrial-scale synthesis. They will be able to apply them to solve problems related to the chemical industry and related sectors. Graduates will also be aware of the risks as well as of the quality and safety norms applicable to the main industries associated with the chemical sector and be able to manage the different processes, products, tools, and resources used in chemical companies. When necessary, they will know how to interpret and apply specific norms and guidelines. Finally, graduates will possess knowledge regarding enterprise creation, intellectual property, and marketing techniques which allow them to plan, manage, and develop technological projects with a focus on their transfer to other sectors. Specialisation: Methodology and Tools Graduates of this master’s programme will have an in-depth knowledge of the most suitable tools and methodologies used in test and/or synthesis laboratories, and they will be capable of applying them to the resolution of complex chemistry-related problems. They will know how to use the main statistical and computational tools applicable to data manipulation and to the extraction of the valuable (though not always evident) chemical information contained in these data. Graduates will be able


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.

General regulations

Grading scale
In the Spanish university system, modules/courses are graded on a scale of 0 to 10 points with the following qualitative equivalence:
0-4,9: «suspenso»; 5-6,9: «aprobado»; 7-8,9: «notable»; 9-10: «sobresaliente». A special mention, «Matrícula de Honor» may be granted to up to 5% of the students in a group provided they have got a «sobresaliente». To pass a module/course is necessary to get at least 5 points.
In cases of recognition of ECTS, professional experience, cultural or sports activities, or student representation no grading will be recorded but, where appropriate, the word «Apto».
