Curriculum

You will learn about the elements and chemical compounds, their transformations and the processes that are involved, also using the potential of living organisms. You will discover technologies that will enable you to develop, design, set up and manage sustainable processes that transform the material into assets for society as a whole.

Final degree project

The final degree project will contain elements related to research or innovative industrial applications, thus approximating professional practice. Students will develop their ability to understand advanced knowledge in their fields by using systems, components or processes to obtain the requirements established, to use new techniques and tools related to the field and design processes and experiments to obtain the established requirements.
 
Furthermore, it will enable students to improve their ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, to work in a team, to incorporate contemporary aspects related to the profession and to recognize the need for constant training.
 
Final degree projects are carried out under the supervision of one of the degree professors; students will be part of a research team led by the tutor-director. Providing the academic criteria are met and a professor from the degree has been assigned as the tutor, it will be possible to undertake the capstone project in other institutions, such as national or foreign universities, public or private research centers, or industries and companies in the chemical and biotechnological sectors. The last step for the final degree project will be to draft a thesis, which must be defended publicly before a tribunal.
