The Department of Chemistry of the University of Madeira (UMa) has an open call for applications for the following Master Programs, until 28th of August 2020:
- Master in Applied Biochemistry (MBA, 15 vacancies). Master’s degree Director: José Câmara ()
- Master in Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials (MNN, 15 vacancies, the Master programme will be taught in English in cooperation with other national and international universities). Master’s degree Director: João Rodrigues () (http://www.uma.pt/mnn)
Both master's degrees correspond to 2 academic years, with a master's degree awarded to those who obtain 120 ECTS credits. Students who complete the 1st year and do not wish to proceed to the 2nd year (Project/Dissertation), will receive a postgraduate diploma (accompanied by the respective diploma supplement), in accordance with the UMa’s Master Program Regulation.
These master's degrees are scientifically supported by the CQM – Madeira Chemistry Research Centre, which is a national research unit, evaluated and financed by the FCT - Foundation for Science and Technology and ARDITI - Regional Agency for the Development of Research, Technology and Innovation. CQM is internationally recognized for its work in the areas of Analytical, Food Chemistry, Natural Products, as well as Nanomaterials and Nanomedicine.
Students who undertake the 2nd year’s Project/Dissertation within the scope of CQM will integrate its team of researchers and will be able to take advantage of the international environment installed at this research unit, its infrastructures and the existing collaborations with research groups inside and outside Europe. In the case of MNN students will be able to complete the Project/Dissertation in partner institutions such as the INL - International Laboratory of Nanotechnology in Minho, the University of Donghua in Shanghai, the University of Jyväskylä in Finland or the University of Aveiro, among others.
Note: students who have not yet finished their degree (for example, those who are missing one or two UCs to finish the 1st cycle) and, therefore, do not yet have the conditions to be able to apply, having an interest in coming to apply to one of these courses in the future, they will be able to enroll some Master UCs as external student, which will naturally be credited after admission to the master's degree.
