Aims: The main aim of the doctoral programme in Chemistry is that students acquire the appropriate knowledge and skills of a doctor in Chemistry with a level of excellence. This level is supported by the international indicators of the Faculty of Chemistry of the UV and the Department of Chemistry and the Institute of Chemical Technology of the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia. The doctoral studies shall, at minimum, guarantee the acquisition by the doctoral students of the basic competencies which are in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, specifically: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society.

Description: This doctoral programme comes from the official doctoral programme in Chemistry of the University of Valencia, which has been awarded with the EXCELLENCE AWARDS, with an overall average of 93 out of 100 (ORDER EDU/3429/2010, of 28 December and Resolution of 6 October 2011), and from the Doctoral Studies in Materials and Sensor Systems for Industrial Applications of the Universitat Politècnica de València. An evidence of the academic relevance of the proposed programme is the number of doctoral theses carried out and defended in the participant departments (Analytical Chemistry, Analytical Physics, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry from the University of Valencia; and the Department of Chemistry and the Institute of Chemical Technology [ITQ] from the Universitat Politècnica de València) which are around a hundred from January 2007 to December 2011, and of which approximately 50% correspond to the European certification for doctoral degrees.
