CB10 To possess the learning skills to continue studying in a largely self-directed or autonomous manner.
E04 To have the ability to solve problems that are unknown, incompletely defined, and have competing specifications, considering the possible solution methods, including the most innovative ones, selecting the most appropriate one, and being able to correct the implementation, evaluating the different design solutions.
E05 To direct and supervise all types of installations, processes, systems and services of the different industrial areas related to chemical engineering.
E08 To direct and manage the organization of work and human resources applying criteria of industrial safety, quality management, prevention of occupational risks, sustainability, and environmental management.
E11 To direct and carry out verification, control of facilities, processes and products, as well as certifications, audits, verifications, tests and reports.
G01 To have adequate knowledge to apply the scientific method and the principles of engineering and economics, to formulate and solve complex problems in processes, equipment, facilities and services, in which matter undergoes changes in its composition, state or energy content, characteristic of the chemical industry and other related sectors including the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, materials, energy, food or environmental sectors.
G04 To conduct appropriate research, undertake design and direct the development of engineering solutions, in new or unfamiliar environments, relating creativity, originality, innovation and technology transfer.
G06 To have the capacity of analysis and synthesis for the continuous progress of products, processes, systems and services using criteria of safety, economic viability, quality and environmental management.
G07 To integrate knowledge and deal with the complexity of making judgments and decisions, based on incomplete or limited information, including reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities of professional practice
G08 To lead and define multidisciplinary teams capable of solving technical changes and management needs in national and international contexts
G09 To communicate and discuss proposals and conclusions in multilingual forums, specialized and non-specialized, in a clear and unambiguous way

G11 To possess the skills of autonomous learning in order to maintain and improve the competences of chemical engineering that allow the continuous development of the profession
MC1 To have acquired advanced knowledge and demonstrated an understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects and of the working methodology in the field of Chemical Engineering with a depth that reaches the forefront of knowledge
MC2 To be able, through arguments or procedures developed and supported by themselves, to apply their knowledge, understanding and problem-solving skills in complex or professional and specialized work environments that require the use of creative or innovative ideas
MC3 To have the ability to collect and interpret data and information on which to base their conclusions including, where necessary and relevant, reflection on social, scientific or ethical issues in the field of chemical engineering
MC4 To be able to deal with complex situations or those that require the development of new solutions in the academic, work or professional field of study of Chemical Engineering
MC5 To know how to communicate to all types of audiences (specialized or not) in a clear and precise way, knowledge, methodologies, ideas, problems and solutions in the field of the study of Chemical Engineering
MC6 To be able to identify their own training needs in the field of study of Chemical Engineering and work or professional environment and to organize their own learning with a high degree of autonomy in all kinds of contexts (structured or unstructured).
