The University of Alicante Master's Course in Materials Science is aimed to provide specialised and advanced training in a scientific area of great fundamental and technical impact such as Materials, and more specifically Nanomaterials.
This Master's Degree originated from the training courses held at the Materials Science PhD programme, which were first implemented back in the early eighties and have evolved ever since thanks to the growing, groundbreaking research conducted at the University of Alicante. The former Doctoral Programme received the Quality Award in year 2004, and the current one has received the Ministry of Education's Excellence Award MEE2011-0051.
At graduates or people who have obtained their Degree in Science within the fields of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Materials Engineering, etc.
This research oriented Master's degree, provides the basis for the development of research activities through a PhD, and also prepares students to engage in R&D activities in technological centres and companies working on the Materials field.
Teaching at the Master's Course in Materials Science is divided between four UA departments:
Thanks to the sinergy between the Master's Degree and the IUMA, students can gain experience and contacts (with industry partners and other research centers) from the research groups working in the Alicante University Materials Institute.
