Information for the student – Aquaculture
The Masters Final Project (TFM) has two objectives: firstly to provide students with the tools to develop a research project or production / technology within one of the areas of aquaculture research and business, and secondly to promote proactive and entrepreneurial in the student to help you navigate the professional environment.
The TFM is the result of a maximum of 750 hours of student work that can be performed in a laboratory receiver in which the student should become familiar with various laboratory techniques and carry out a pilot project or in a business sector in which students undertake a research project, an intervention or innovation. The TFM ends with the preparation and public defense of a Master Thesis work on a topic related to aquaculture where students can integrate the set of skills and competences acquired in the master.
The three organizing universities belong to the Master XRAq (Network of Reference for Research and Desenvolupament in Aquaculture, http://www.xraq.cat/) together with various research groups in the IRTA (Institute for Research in Agro-Food of the Generalitat de Catalunya ) (http://www.irta.cat/es-ES/Paginas/default.aspx) and the Institute of Marine Science Research Council for Science (http://www.icm.csic.es/es/content/instituto-de-ciencias-del-mar).
The guarantees XRAq potential research training of students of the Master. To define the magnitude of this potential, suffice to say that in 2010 researchers published 98 scientific articles XRAq indexed, which arose in the framework of 21 projects and 10 MICINN EU projects, among others. In the same year he defended doctoral theses 6 and 33 more are in process, of which 15 are graduates of the Joint Masters of Aquaculture. There are also collaborations with companies and other institutions in which it is possible to make the final dissertation, some of which are listed below:
