MASTER'S DEGREE IN ELECTROCHEMISTRY. SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

 

 

OBJECTIVES


  • Provide access to a doctoral programme, such as the doctorate in ECyT (Electrochemistry: Science and Technology), with a sufficient guarantee of  basic and applied knowledge in the field of Electrochemistry enabling students to contribute to  future research groups with doctors who carry out their activities in the field of Electrochemistry.
  • Contribute to the training of specialists in Electrochemistry, a subject which has received minimal attention in the current undergraduate degree programme, and is one of the cornerstones for advancements related to new technological challenges.
  • Promote mobility and interaction among students of the Master’s degree in the field of Electrochemistry, contact with other universities, research centres and companies which are active in the field.

GENERAL COURSE PROGRAMME

The programme has a tri-modular structure:

  • Fundamental
  • Specialisation
  • Master’s Degree Final Project

1. FUNDAMENTAL MODULE:  Consists of three compulsory subjects (theory and practice):

a. Fundamentals of electrochemistry (10 ECTS)

b. Technological applications of electrochemistry (10 ECTS)

c. Basic experimentation in electrochemistry (10 ECTS)

The subject "Fundamentals of electrochemistry" is subdivided into two essential subjects related to the field of electrochemistry which provide focus and enable students to gauge their respective levels, whatever their academic background in experimental sciences. It is important to emphasize that the subject "Electrochemistry" is virtually non-existent in the current undergraduate degree programmes. Hence the need to include subjects such as "Fundamentals of electrochemistry I" (6 ECTS) and "Fundamentals of electrochemistry II" (4 ECTS).The second subject in the module is "Technological applications of electrochemistry "and with its distinct focus on technology and its applications, the subject area is developed through two subjects: “Technological applications of electrochemistry I" (6 ECTS) and "Technological applications of electrochemistry II "(4 ECTS).

These two subjects would be taught intensively at a single university for a period of 6 weeks. Students will develop part of their studio work at the university and the rest is to be completed after this 6 week period, during which they can use the virtual tutoring provided through ICT facilities. The Master’s Academic Coordinating Committee will annually choose the university campus that will be responsible for the delivery of these subjects for the following year.

The third subject “Basic experimentation in electrochemistry” is a single practical subject comprising 10 ECTS. Given the extra travel expenses arising out of additional student relocations, the Master’s Academic Coordinating Committee may agree to allow students to take the third subject either in the same university where they took the first two subjects of this module, or in the participating university of the joint degree programme.

This module is intended to produce a series of core and specific skills common to all students in the Master’s degree programme. It also aims to provide students with a multidisciplinary approach that enables problem solving from different perspectives.


 2. SPECIALISATION MODULE: Comprises 6 optional subjects from a series of optional subjects amounting to a maximum of 118 credits. These subjects represent the compendium of subjects offered by all the universities. Students must choose at least 10 ECTS from subjects in the specialisation module, which enables students to choose from a wide range of universities, according to their preferences and ability to travel and relocate.


 3.  MASTER’S DEGREE FINAL PROJECT:  15 ECTS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS


According to the Regulations of the University of Alicante, the following requirements must be complied to have access to official taught Master’s degrees:

  1. To be in possession of a SPANISH OFFICIAL GRADUATE DEGREE CERTIFICATE or other issued by an institution of higher education  within the EHEA (European Higher Education) that enables the holder to have access  to Master’s degrees in the issuing.
  2. To be in possession of an officially approved  FOREIGN HIGHER EDUCATION DEGREE CERTIFICATE that had been recognised as equal to the degree that allows access to the requested studies.
  3. To be in possession of a UNIVERSITY DEGREE CERTIFICATE obtained in a University or Higher Education Institution of COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE EHEA, without the prior approval of their studies. In this case, the following should be considered:

  • Non-recognised degree certificates shall require a technical report showing an equivalence statement issued by the University of Alicante (ContinUA – Continuing Education Centre), for which the corresponding fee should be paid.
  • Access through this way does under no circumstances imply prior official approval of the holder’s degree certificate, nor its recognition for purposes other than studying a master's degree.

 

ADMISSION AND ASSESSMENT CRITERIA


Admission profile: Applicants must be in possession of one of the following academic titles:

- An official Spanish university degree in Chemistry, Engineering or related areas as established by the  Master’s Academic Coordinating Committee (CCAM)

- Chemical Engineering or Engineering Degrees or related areas obtained in accordance with programmes of study existing prior to the enactment of Royal Decree 1393/2007.

- An official university degree issued by a institution of higher education from the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) which can be homologated to the degrees described in points 1 and 2, and where the degree qualifies the holder for admission to a Master’s degree in the awarding country.

- A non-homologated foreign degree that accredits a level of education equivalent to the official Spanish university degrees indicated in points 1and 2 and where the degree qualifies the holder for admission to a Master’s degree in the awarding country.

 

Admission Criteria:

Special admission tests are not required.

In the event that demand for places exceeds the number of places offered, the  Master’s Academic Coordinating Committee (CCAM) will select students on the basis of following criteria:
a) Degree in Chemistry, Engineering or related areas (50%);
b) Overall academic record (15%);
c) Academic results in subjects related to the Master’s (20%)
d) Professional experience (15%).
