Electrochemistry. Science and Technology

New master's degree replacing the former program Electrochemistry. Science and Technology


Electrochemistry is present in many of the processes that we find in everyday products that we regularly use or consume: batteries, power cells and rechargeable batteries, metals and coatings, electrolysers for the production of hydrogen or chlorine, reagents for the treatment of wastewater, etc. Consequently, there is a need for high-level specific training in this field. The master's degree in Electrochemistry: Science and Technology is designed to contribute to training needs in this area.
The course will provide successful graduates with the capacity to work with industrial sectors in which electrochemistry knowledge is required and to start a research career in this field.

This is a joint degree taught at nine public universities (UAB, UAM, UA, UB, UBU, UCO, UMU, US and UPCT). It brings together a broad spectrum of research groups and teachers in electrochemistry from around Spain. The coordination between these universities represents a unique concentration of the training offer in the Spanish university system. The master's degree has a study load of 60 credits, in accordance with EHEA regulations. The 24 credits for compulsory theory subjects are taken intensively from the month of January at one of the participating universities, attended by all students and teachers involved in the course. This approach favours student mobility and the synergy of knowledge. The master's degree is open to students from any country (as long as they have a good knowledge of the language in which the course is taught).

Learning objectives

  • To facilitate postgraduate training that covers basic and applied aspects of electrochemistry.
  • To strengthen and promote technological research in electrochemistry.
  • To promote mobility options and interaction between master's degree students in the field of electrochemistry and contact with other universities, research centres and companies that are active in this area.
  • To facilitate access to a doctoral programme such as Electrochemistry: Science and Technology, with guarantees of basic and applied training in the field of electrochemistry so that students can carry out their professional activity in the industrial sector, research or teaching.
