Student Profile

The Master is aimed to provide graduates in Chemistry and related degrees with competences and skills that allow them to offer solutions to an increasingly technological society that demands new materials with very diverse features, which needs to develop processes and products that allow the protection of health and the environment and improve the quality of our lives. The training that students will receive is versatile and prepares them to perform highly qualified work, both in industries in the chemical and energy sectors, as well as in R&D&I in public or private companies and institutions or in research centers. Therefore, the recommended profile for incoming students should fall into the following categories:


  • Graduates in Chemistry with degrees of 240 ECTS

  • Graduates in Chemistry. with degrees of 300 ECTS

  • Engineers, graduates and graduates of other related degrees. The Master's Coordination and Admission Committee will take into account the skills and competences provided by their access


The duration of the Master in Chemical Science and Technology is planned for one academic year (60 ECTS). However, it is possible to study it in two years, taking the theoretical-practical modules during the first academic year (30 ECTS, September to March), leaving the Master's Thesis (30 ECTS) for the second academic year.
