We build competencies!

 

Provide a solid scientific, technological and social learning, supported by a programme and courses that includes contact with real situations and laboratories experiences. This cycle of studies is based on the development of a diverse set of skills and competencies that permits excellent career opportunities and pursue postgraduate studies.

        

ECTS: 120
Location: Tomar.

Objectives

This course of study includes:

  • A master´s program organised into modules corresponding to 76 ECTS credits;
  • An original project or a professional internship including final report corresponding to 44 ECTS credits.

This master's degree was designed so as to develop skills in the following technical-scientific areas: Chemical Technology (62 compulsory and 12 optional ECTS credits); Industrial Processes (12 compulsory and 16 optional ECTS credits); Environment and Quality (12 compulsory ECTS credits); Physical and Inorganic Chemistry (6 compulsory ECTS credits); Organic Chemistry and Biotechnology (6 compulsory ECTS credits); Mathematics (6 compulsory ECTS credits).

Professional Goals

Holders of the master´s degree in Chemical Technology are prepared to perform as:

  • Production managers or production assistant managers within chemical and biological industries;
  • Manager or assistant managers of industrial premises related with chemical technology such as industrial utilities and industrial wastewater treatment plants;
  • Members of multidisciplinary teams for the creation, implementation or optimisation of chemical and biological industries;
  • Director or middle manager within independent or auxiliary chemical and biological laboratories;

Condições de Acesso

According to the Portuguese Law, the following candidates are eligible for entry to the course of study leading to the Mestre degree:

  • Holders of a licenciadodegree or legally equivalent corresponding to the first cycle of higher education;
  • Holders of a foreign higher degree awarded on completion of a first-cycle programme organised in the framework of the Bologna Process;
  • Holders of a foreign higher degree which is deemed by the Technical-Scientific Committee of ESTT-IPT to meet the requirements of a licenciado degree.
  • Holders of an academic, scientific or professional curriculum which is deemed by the Technical/Scientific Committee of ESTT-IPT as appropriate to access the programme.

The candidates who have, in the preceding year, completed the bachelor´s degree (licenciatura) in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering or the degree in Environmental and Biological Engineering offered by the School of Technology-IPT have direct access to the master´s programme in Chemical Technology.

Without prejudice to the general entry requirements, the following candidates are accepted for entry onto the master´s degree in Chemical Technology subject to admission quotas:

  • Holders of a licenciado degree or equivalent in chemical and biological technology related areas such as chemical, biochemical, food, environmental and others;
  • Holders of a foreign higher degree in chemical and biological technology areas awarded on completion of a first-cycle programme organised in the framework of the Bologna Process;
  • Holders of a foreign higher degree in chemical and biological technology which is deemed by the ESTT/IPT Technical-Scientific Committee to meet the requirements of a licenciado degree.
  • Holders of a bacharel degree in chemical and biological areas whose scientific and professional curriculum is deemed by the ESTT-IPT Scientific-Technical Committee as appropriate to access this course of study;
  • Holders of an academic, scientific or professional curriculum in chemical and biological areas which is deemed by the ESTT-IPT Scientific-Technical Committee as appropriate to access this course of study.
  • Accrual of credits to candidates holding a licenciado degree in chemical engineering or similar programs prior to the Bologna process with a duration equivalent to 300 ECTS credits (5 years of study) is formally analysed on a case-to-case basis.
