It's useful to know

Prospective students for this Chemistry degree must have a solid education in chemistry and have gained as many credits as possible in mathematics and physics in upper secondary school education. Students will also need a good aptitude for laboratory tests.

Learning objectives

The general objective of the Bachelor's degree in Chemistry is for students to acquire the skills for understanding the chemical behaviour of elements and compounds and for designing and executing experimental set-ups. Thus, the contents that are worked on in the Bachelor's degree in Chemistry are cross-disciplinary and cover the different areas that are part of chemistry (physical, analytical, organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry and engineering) including both theoretical and practical subjects, with more than 500 hours of laboratory teaching.

The proposed curriculum is intended to ensure, when you finish the degree, you will have acquired a sound basis of theoretical and practical knowledge that you can apply to the problem-solving and designing innovative strategies, in order to deal with the many social demands that the chemical sector receives every day. This also implies acquiring other competences, which include analysing and interpreting data, scientific communication (both written and oral) in English as well, teamwork and the capacity to generate proposals based on ethical and sustainability criteria, in order to respond to the problems and needs of the industrial, economic, environmental and biomedical sectors, among others.

Basic competences.
  • CB-01. - Capacity for critically analysing complex situations, by collecting information and interpreting data, and designing creative and innovative strategies for solving them.
  • CB-02. - Knowing how to communicate orally and in writing in scientific and professional spheres, using own languages and English.
  • CB-03. - Working in a team, helping to prepare specific and multidisciplinary projects.
  • CB-04. - Planning and assessing one's own activity and learning and elaborating strategies to improve them by applying quality criteria.
  • CB-05. Capacity to act, generate proposals and take decisions in research and professional activity with ethical and sustainable criteria.
Specific competences
  • CE-01. Applying scientific rationale and the scientific method (to gather and manage data in order to formulate and test hypotheses) to analyse and explain the discipline’s subject matter.
  • CE-02. Using and applying the instrumentation and experimental methodologies typical of the discipline safely.
  • CE-03. Using chemical terminology correctly: nomenclature, conventions and units, and applying concepts, principles and theories associated with the different areas of chemistry.
  • CE-04. Identifying and understanding, at a structural and functional level, the molecular bases of the structures and the biological processes, their applications and the regulation mechanisms.
  • CE-05. Relating the macroscopic properties of matter with the characteristics and structure of the individual molecules including biomolecules and macromolecules (natural and synthetic).
  • CE-06. Applying the principles and theories of chemical reactivity to the study of organic and inorganic compounds and the development of processes.
  • CE-07. Using and applying the main basic operations of engineering relating them to chemical and / or biological principles.
  • CE-08. Interpreting and applying the physico-chemical principles to describing the structure and the properties of atoms and molecules.
  • CE-09 Applying metrological processes in order to obtain quality information in resolving problems of a qualitative and quantitative nature linked to identifying, characterising and determining organic and inorganic substances.
  • CE-10. Drawing up and planning the management and execution of work-related projects.
  • CE-11. Integrating bachelor's degree knowledge in a professional and research environment, incorporating economic, legislative and managerial knowledge.

The organisation of the Bachelor’s degree.

The Bachelor's degree in Chemistry is 4 years long, during which the student will acquire the necessary competences to analyse and study the composition and properties of substances and materials in order to understand qualitative changes, produced naturally or otherwise.

In the first year, the following basic scientific studies are taken: chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and statistics, as well as a practical module called integrated scientific techniques. These basic subjects provide the student with the necessary tools to understand chemistry, while the integrated scientific techniques allows the acquisition and development of competences and skills related with laboratory and field experiments.

The second and third years cover the central topics of chemistry: Physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic and organic chemistry. Similar subjects, such as biochemistry and chemical engineering, are also introduced.

Fourth year students learn to create, design and manage projects and be introduced to materials science. Furthermore, students begin to specialise by choosing two optional subjects from the following: ‘synthesis and reactivity’, ‘biomolecules’, ‘structure analysis and determination’ and ‘quality and industry’. Students can also decide on the career path of their studies when they choose either work placement or other optional subjects in the “specific complementary subjects in chemistry” module. Students complete their studies with a bachelor's thesis in which they demonstrate the application of all acquired skills.
