He should also have the technical education described in the fifth section of the previously mentioned decree, which refers to the Industrial Chemistry Specific Technology Module. Thus, the graduates will be accepted to the master’s degree without previous educational training if they meet the criteria described in this section. If the applicant was a graduate in any other discipline rather than Chemical Engineering, we will be asked to comply a series of educational requirements to prove that he is competent in the master’s subject. The UV Degree in Chemical Engineering is considered the model degree for accessing the master’s degree.

Therefore, we do not recommend students who don’t have training in related scientific/technical disciplines to apply for this master’s degree.

Regarding the language requirements, the applicants are recommended to have a B1 or higher level of English to understand scientific documents. Foreigner students are advised to have a C1 level of Spanish.

Master’s Degree entry requirements:

  • Those who have previously acquired the competencies gathered in the section 3 of the Ministerial Decree, establishing the requirements for the verification of the official university degrees linked to the practice of the Industrial Technical Engineer profession (Order CIN/351/2009), can access to the Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. Their training should be in accordance with the Section 5 of the order mentioned above, which refers to the module of Specific Technology of Industrial Chemistry.
  • Likewise, the access to the Master’s Degree will be allowed if the candidate has the competencies gathered in the modules of common and basic training of the industrial branch of the section 5 of the Ministerial Decree, establishing the requirements for the verification of official university degrees linked to the practice of the Industrial Technical Engineer profession. In this case, the bridging courses necessary for guaranteeing the competencies gathered in the industrial chemistry section of the referred order.
  • Similarly, holders of any other degree, without prejudice to establish the previous courses that are deemed it necessary, can also access to the Master’s Degree.

Holders of degrees different to the ones mentioned above will be required to take the bridging courses needed for meeting the competencies of the degree in Chemical Engineering. These competencies correspond to the basic competencies described in the RD 1393/2007 and the ones established by the Order CIN/351/2009, published in the BOE of the 20 February 2009, which train students to develop the profession of Industrial Technical Engineer.
