M7: Internship. 

M8: Master’s Degree Dissertation

Coord. Félix Busqué

  • In the specialty “Advanced chemical research”, these practices will be carried out in a research laboratory of the Department of Chemistry of the UAB under the supervision of a professor who will act as tutor or in a Research Institute under the supervision of a member researcher of staff with recognized experience. The supervisors will issue a report at the end of the stay that will be used by the Coordination Committee for the evaluation of students. The tasks that will be carried out by the students will be the learning and the practice of analysis and synthesis techniques in a research laboratory.
  • In the specialty “Chemistry in industry” these practices will be carried out in laboratories of chemical companies. Each student will have a supervisor at the company who will guarantee the progress and quality of their work and issue a report at the end of their stay. This report will be used by the Coordination Committee for the evaluation of students. Also the student will have a university supervisor who will guarantee the quality of the final written report. The tasks that the students will be carried out will be the learning and the practice of analysis and synthesis techniques in an industrial chemical laboratory. Students have guaranteed up to a minimum of three interviews with different possible companies interested in hosting the student during the development of the experimental credits of the master’s degree; from this moment on, if the student has not managed to be admitted by a company, he will be also responsible for finding a company where develop these credits.
