The aim of the Master is, on the one hand, to supplement the training of future chemists with a bachelor degree and, on the other hand, to initiate them in research by providing them with the know-how, abilities and skills related to Chemistry and also linked to the new demands required by a globalised market. One the Master is completed, students will have the knowledge and experience to facilitate their entry into the field of research or to help them find a job. Graduates of this Master will be eligible to prepare, submit and defend their Doctoral Thesis for obtaining a PhD qualification from the University of La Laguna, as over sixty doctoral students have done over the last five years

General information

  • Credits: 60 ECTS
  • Duration: 1 year
  • Methodology: Classroom-based
  • Type: Inter-departmental
  • Place:
    • Faculty of Sciences. Chemistry Section
  • Academic direction:
  • Provide students who are going to do a doctoral thesis with the abilities that a research professional needs, as it includes subjects aimed at the latest and specific aspects of today’s inter-disciplinary chemistry
  • Provide training that gives graduates the capacities they need to enter the field of research, by means of practical and applied teaching, and also to facilitate their entry in the professional market
  • This Master is essential to provide students with advanced training in all the fields of chemistry that introduce them into the field of chemical research, putting them in an ideal theoretical and practical position for undertaking the research that will lead them to writing their doctoral thesis, or to join the R+D+i department of public or private bodies, or in the purely professional field, enabling them to take on highly skilled and technical jobs in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food or environmental industries
    General skills
    • Have ability in the use of the main sources of information and documentation, including handling data bases and internet

    Especific skills
    • Apply the best instrumental techniques to identify, quantify, separate, characterise and structural determination
    • Design routes for synthesising organic and inorganic molecules
    • Design micro-structural control methods for new materials and analytical applications for these materials
    • Know the groups of natural products and their bio-synthetic routes
    • Develop theoretical and practical abilities to relate structure with the properties of substances of different complexities
    • Use computer programmes that enable the students to pose and resolve Computational Chemistry, molecular modelling and Chemiometric problems
    • Apply the best chemiometric tools for each problem
    • Know and design laboratory quality management systems
    • Acquire the necessary knowledge in different fields of Medical Chemistry to follow and critically interpret the latest advances in their theory and practise
    • Handle the basic concepts and methodologies used in computational chemistry
    • Know the principles of the Physical Chemistry of Surfaces and their applications
    • Understand the principles that govern the degradation of metal materials and apply this knowledge to estimating the state of conservation and the shelf life of different materials in conditions similar to service conditions
    • Apply Electro-Catalytic know-how to solving energy and environmental problems
    • Be apple to apply the research experience acquired to start the research phase of a doctoral programme in areas related to chemistry and similar fields, or in professional tasks, both in private industry and in the public sector
    • Draw up a clear and concise report on the results of the work done and the conclusions drawn

  • Students wishing to enter should have a scientific-technical profile with a broad knowledge of chemistry. The recommended entry profile for the Master in Chemistry is that of graduates in Chemistry, Pharmacy, Environmental Sciences, Chemical Engineering. These students have the prior level of training required to enter the Mater and will not require any supplementary training
  • For other similar qualifications, the Academic Committee will study each application individually and they may, if necessary require students to study supplementary training that guarantees that they will have the minimum Chemical knowledge necessary to follow the master studies appropriately
