Interuniversity Master in New Materials

The Interuniversity Master in New Materials is mainly aimed at specialization in the area of new materials. Its objective is to provide a solid training in the most current methodologies for the synthesis, characterization, properties and applications of new materials, in fields as diverse as biomaterials, nanomaterials, intelligent materials, materials for energy, electronics, catalysis, etc. The program enables to make decisions in the scientific and technological development fields as well as to carry out research work in groups.
The master gives direct access to doctoral programs. In addition, R + D + i in Materials is a highly developed field in our country and therefore there are specialization courses and / or summer courses that may be related.

Master’s Degree in Environmental Pollution and Toxicology

The Master’s Degree in Environmental Pollution and Toxicology will train you as a professional in the biological assessment of the health of ecosystem, both marine and fresh water, and terrestrial. This master's degree, which is mainly for research purposes, gives access to the Doctoral Programme on Environmental Pollution and Toxicology of the UPV/EHU.

Master in Biomedical Research

The master in biomedical research offers updated training on the molecular, cellular and physiological mechanisms involved in the development of the disease, necessary to carry out research that leads to the achievement of valid results and conclusions on topics of biosanitary interest. The master has a clear research orientation as a previous step to doctoral studies giving direct access to the Biomedical Research Doctorate Program.

Master Thesis Final Project (MTFP)

BCMaterials, the Basque Center for Materials, Applications and Nanostructures located in Leioa (Bizkaia, Spain), provides for PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY AND MATERIALS SCIENCE students, the opportunity to develop their Master Thesis Final Project (MTFP) in the areas of advanced multifunctional materials.

BCMaterials offers research training of excellence, periodic scientific seminars and colloquia, as well as access to high-level laboratory facilities.

We are looking for highly motivated students who want to advance on their studies and are interested in pursuing a PhD with us.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Eligible candidates must be master students enrolled at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
  • A collaboration agreement must be signed between the student’s university and BCMaterials.
  • Students must be prepared to have a minimum dedication of 3 consecutive months, during the morning or afternoon, covering a minimum of 150 hours in total.

Application And Selection Process:

  • Applicants must complete the form available at the bottom of this page and must include their CV, academic transcripts and letters of motivation and reference.
  • Applications will be accepted before enrolment in the master, being the most recommended option, designing the TFM in common agreement with the student and one of the teachers of the Master.
  • Applications will also be accepted once the Master’s degree has started, when the offer of master’s projects has already been made.
  • The student’s academic record will influence the selection process, as well as the rest of the information provided.
  • Within 2 weeks of receipt, BCMaterials will contact the student by the means informed in the application, to determine the feasibility of the MTFP and carry out the appropriate administrative procedures.
