The TFG is aimed at evaluating the skills associated with the degree and concludes with the presentation of a written thesis, its public defence, evaluation and grading.
Students can complete their master's thesis under the tutorship of the teaching staff on the master or other researchers at theInstitute of Computational Chemistry and Catalysis and/or the Department of Chemistry at the University of Girona. The master's thesis can also be undertaken at research centres at other universities in Spain or abroad, pursuant to the corresponding agreement. Within the EU, this option can be partially funded by the Erasmus + for traineeship programme. Students on work placements are recommended to perform their master’s thesis at the company they have been assigned to.
Students are encouraged to make direct contact with research groups to confirm their tutor and the master’s thesis project. The official assignment of projects to students will be completed on master’s thesis platform at the Faculty of Science at the UdG . This platform will also be used for the submission and assessment of the work.
