PhD in Chemistry

It became operational in 2009/2010. The minimum number of credits for the degree is 240 (4 years).

Objectives

The Doctoral program in Chemistry has as main objectives:

1. Provide doctoral competencies, skills and advanced research tools in the specialties of Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry;

2. Develop skills to conceive, design, adapt and carry out original research, respecting standards of quality, integrity and academic ethics and worthy of international dissemination evaluated in peer publications;

3. To enable doctoral students a multidisciplinary training to complete a synergistic and comprehensive knowledge gained in their respective specialties in a perspective of their integration into the labor market.

COURSE PLAN AND DOCTORAL PROGRAM OPERATION

The Doctoral Program in Chemical has a total duration of four years (240 ECTS) and includes a curricular component with 60 ECTS and a PhD thesis of 180 ECTS.

The organization of  the doctoral program intends to ensure the provision of a range of optional courses adapted to the range of basic training of doctoral candidates, their area of expertise and research, while also ensuring the scientific multidisciplinary.

The research work on the doctoral thesis begins in the 1st year of the doctoral course, within the course Thesis Project (30 ECTS). The research developed in this course will use and incorporate the obtained results in the thesis which will start in the 2nd academic year of the program. The Thesis Project is a mandatory course lasting one academic year and the results will be presented in public at the end of the school year.

The Doctoral Program also ensures a more comprehensive specialized training in three areas of great relevance for the business of chemistry: Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. This training will be mainly acquired through realization of two six-month compulsory courses designated Specialized Modules I and II (6 ECTS each). The Doctoral Program also includes the Entrepreneurship subjects (3 ECTS); Introduction to Teaching Practice I and II (3 ECTS each), which consists of lecionação (with supervision) practices and Elective classes. The Free options include courses taught at the FCT-NOVA and other higher education institutions. Working time and credits concerning the free options vary according to the chosen courses.
