Main focus

; The graduates of this Master’s program wil be able to do the following: – To know and implement the basic principles of Nuclear Physics and its applications. – To accurately evaluate the variables that influence a given process and provide an informed response in consonance with ethical and social responsibilities. – To write scientific texts and deliver presentations with accuracy and precision. – To effectively use basic techniques for the analysis and resolution of new problems, such as relevant bibliography, databases, etc. – To act as the leader of a work group, guide its discussions, and effectively create accurate documents of great complexity. – To show understanding and respect for all human rights and apply these principles in all interactions with collaborators and sponsors. – To know the environmental impact of atomic nuclear processes and to act ethically in this respect.; – To understand the fundamental aspects and applications of Nuclear Physics, including cutting-edge research currently under development. – To know the current state of the art regarding fundamental processes of energy generation, including natural and artificial energy sources. – To know and be able to use the latest computational methods (languages, databases, etc.) and their application to different disciplines related to Nuclear Physics. – To effectively perform the tasks assigned as part of teamwork.


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».
