BASIC AND GENERAL COMPETENCES
CB6 – Students possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context.
CB7 - Students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem solving capacity in new or little known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study.
CB9 - Students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
CB10 - Students possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be self-directed or autonomous.
CG01 - Students are able to foster, in academic and professional contexts, technological and scientific progress within a society based on knowledge and respect for: a) fundamental rights and equal opportunities between men and women, b) The principles of equal opportunities and universal accessibility for persons with disabilities, and c) the values of a culture of peace and democratic values.
CG04 - Students develop a critical thinking and reasoning and know how to communicate them in an egalitarian and non-sexist way both in oral and written form, in their own language and in a foreign language.
CT03 - Students have the ability of analyze and synthesize in such a way that they can understand, interpret and evaluate the relevant information by assuming with responsibility their own learning or, in the future, the identification of professional exits and employment fields.
CE03 – Students acquire an overview of the different applications of the Theoretical Chemistry and modeling in the fields of Chemistry, Biochemistry, Materials Sciences, Astrophysics and Catalysis.
CE04 - Students understand the theoretical and practical bases of computational techniques with which they can analyze the electronic, morphological and structural structure of a compound and interpret the results adequately.
