The main objective of this Chemical Science and Technology programme from Rovira i Virgili University is to provide intensive specialisation in key research lines in present-day chemistry, such as molecular modelling, synthesis design for different types of molecular, solid or polymeric materials, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, advanced structural characterisation methods.


All of these lines are carried out in research groups of a high scientific level at the URV and offer the possibility of international mobility through many collaborations that allow doctoral students to obtain the International Doctor Mention.

Career opportunities

Students who successfully complete the Chemical Science and Technology programme from Rovira i Virgili University will be able to work in research-related organisations such as universities, research institutes and innovation centres, and in areas of interest for the productive sector, such as companies that process and produce chemicals and new materials, develop new technologies, etc.
