2. Pre-Requisites

In order to defend the TFM, it will be necessary to have passed the rest of the subjects of the course.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

According to the current regulations governing official master's degree courses, all students enrolled in the Master's degree will be entitled to the award of a Master's Final Project and the assignment of a tutor by the Master's Academic Committee. The purpose of the TFM is the individual elaboration by the student of a work where the knowledge, capacities, competences and skills developed during the Master's studies are applied and integrated. In this individual work the student will involve in its development all the competences acquired and will demonstrate that he/she has achieved the expected learning outcomes. Demonstrate their scientific and technical competence to undertake studies or work in which, through the application of their knowledge of chemistry and science and technology in general, they solve or help to solve specific problems.

Course competences
Code Description
CB06 Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context
CB07 Students are able to apply their acquired knowledge and problem-solving skills in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study.
CB08 Students are able to integrate knowledge and deal with the complexity of making judgements on the basis of incomplete or limited information, including reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgements.
CB09 Students are able to communicate their conclusions and the ultimate knowledge and rationale behind them to specialist and non-specialist audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
CB10 Students possess the learning skills that will enable them to continue studying in a largely self-directed or autonomous way.
CE01 Apply the principles of metrology for the development of advanced quality research in the field of chemistry, as well as its integration in the management systems of laboratories that comply with the requirements of international standards.
CE02 Integrate quantum mechanics into the determination of the structure and properties of atoms and molecules of interest in research and development laboratories.
CE03 To know the usefulness of the molecular design, simulation and calculation methods that characterise computational chemistry, as well as to be proficient in the use of these methods.
CE04 Evaluate the usefulness of separation, analysis and structural determination techniques for joint application in problem solving, and be skilled in the use of such techniques in both research and routine laboratories applying methods of organic and inorganic analysis and/or synthesis.
CE05 Analyse the main catalysis processes in the field of scientific research and/or in the specialised profession of the chemist in a sustainable way in their application.
CE06 Assess the principles of sustainable chemistry and safety standards for the handling of known or newly synthesised chemicals.
CE07 To learn about the possibilities offered by new analytical methodologies in different fields of application, as well as the current trends in analytical chemistry of interest for the development of R+D+I or its implementation in specialised control laboratories.
CE08 Design a sustainable development of chemistry in its application at research level as in any professional activity, through advanced knowledge of synthesis and analysis methodologies.
CE09 To develop experiments that serve as a basis for R+D+I activities in the field of chemistry, facilitating their transfer to the productive world by means of new standardised work procedures validated for routine and/or control laboratories.
CG01 Transfer the concepts and fundamentals of chemistry in the context of scientific research and/or in the specialised profession of the chemist.
CG02 To achieve advanced training in the fundamentals and potential of the instrumental techniques available in chemistry for the development of scientific research and/or application in specialised control laboratories.
CG03 To achieve advanced training in the management and handling of experimental techniques and procedures in the chemical laboratory.
CG04 Acquire laboratory management skills, both from the point of view of work organisation, responding to principles of quality, safety, environmental and social commitment, as well as the involvement of computer tools and scientific information useful in research and/or routine laboratories.
CT01 Apply critical, logical and creative thinking, demonstrating a capacity for innovation.
CT02 Effectively integrate ICTs into the specialised areas of the chemistry profession, both for the development of new basic and applied aspects.
5. Objectives or Learning Outcomes
Course learning outcomes
Present and defend, before a specialised audience, the development, results and conclusions of a scientific-technical or research work in the field of chemistry.
Know how to prepare a clear and concise report of the results obtained in a research work, or the report of a scientific-technical subject of a chemical nature.
To know how to explain in a clear and concise way the conclusions of a research or technical work carried out that may be of interest to a non-specialist audience.
Knowing how to use scientific databases, abstracts, full articles, documentation, etc. necessary to have a clear view of the background, originality, interest and viability of a specific study or work.
Be able to plan and implement experimental work to achieve results that solve specific problems in the field of chemistry, or in a broader scientific field in which theoretical and practical knowledge of chemistry is applied.
To show that skills in adapting to new situations and making decisions have been achieved.
