The Masters course compulsory subjects, which correspond to 18 ECTS credits are found in the fundamental module. The optional subjects, 27 ECTS credits, can be found both in the fundamental and the specialization module.
The fundamental module is organized in subjects of 6 ECTS credits (5 Theory + 1 Experimental). It is formed by 5 subjects out of which 3 are compulsory.
The subjects in the fundamental module are: Solid State Chemistry (Com.), Solid State Physics (Com.), Physical Chemistry of Surfaces (Com.), Characterization Techniques I: X-Ray neutron and electron scattering, microscopy (Opt.), and Characterization Techniques II: Surface techniques and spectroscopies (Opt.).
The specialization module is organized in 7 subjects, related to the research areas of the groups involved in the Masters course. These subjects are:
Each one of these subjects is developed throughout different optional subjects, each one of them with a duration of 3 ECTS. It must be highlighted that are subjects which are akin to more than one area.
