Master's Degrees


The Master's Degree in Chemical Science and Technology guarantees the fulfillment of the basic skills of the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (MECES) described in Annex I section 3.3 of Royal Decree 1393/2007 of October 29, 2007, which establishes the organization of official university education.

As a consequence of the foreseen formative development, students will have to achieve the following skills:

  • Use knowledge and practical skills in the research environment in chemical science and technology.
  • Analyze, evaluate and develop new ideas and complex problems in the environment of chemical science and technology.
  • Promote scientific and methodological advances in chemical science and technology in academic and productive environments.
  • Communicate with the academic and non-academic community using the knowledge and skills acquired about advances in chemical science and technology.


These skills will be acquired through the following general, specific and transversal skills:

General skills

  • GS1.- To integrate knowledge on chemistry, and to face up the complexity of questions in the area.
