GENERAL INFORMATION

The appearance of RD-99/2011 led to the launch of the Doctoral Programme in Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the UCLM, which derives directly from a previous programme, regulated by RD-1393/2007, with a Mention of Excellence and with the same name.

The Doctoral Programme in Chemical and Environmental Engineering offers third cycle training that enables students to acquire the ability to work in the field of scientific and applied research, related to the development of chemical processes and products in an environmentally friendly way and with sustainable energy consumption.

The research and training of PhDs in the field of Chemical and Environmental Engineering is a relevant aspect in Spain, and in particular in the area of influence of the UCLM. The professional sector related to the chemical industry occupies one of the first positions as an employer at national level. On the other hand, the professional sector related to environmental engineering is one of the most important in Spain due to the need for a constant increase in material, professional, educational and public awareness and research resources aimed at environmental conservation. This industrial and social context requires the contribution of trained personnel in the R&D area.

Specifically, the proposed programme aims to ensure that students:

1. Culminate their academic training, at the highest scientific level.

2. Demonstrate a systematic understanding of the field of Process and Environmental Engineering.

3. Master the skills and methods of research related to this field.

4. Demonstrate a commitment to the benefit of society and the environment.

5. To be able to carry out critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis in existing and new situations of varying degrees of complexity.

6. To be capable of proposing new doctrines, principles, models or methods inherent to the field of Chemical and Environmental Engineering.

The Programme's Verification Report considers that PhD students must acquire the following competences:

BASIC

- CB11 - Systematic understanding of a field of study and mastery of the research skills and methods related to that field.

- CB12 - Ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adopt a substantial research or creative process.

- CB13 - Ability to contribute to the expansion of the frontiers of knowledge through original research.

- CB14 - Ability to critically analyse, evaluate and synthesise new and complex ideas.

- CB15 - Ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general about their fields of knowledge in the modes and languages commonly used in their international scientific community.

- CB16 - Ability to promote, in academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural progress within a knowledge-based society.

 

 PERSONAL SKILLS AND ABILITIES

- CA01-Dealing with contexts in which there is little specific information.

- CA02-Find the key questions to be answered in order to solve a complex problem.

- CA03 - Design, create, develop and undertake novel and innovative projects in their field of knowledge.

REGULATIONS

The programme is articulated with two basic regulations: the RD-99/2011 at national level, and the Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the UCLM at university level. Both regulations and other additional regulations can be found in the regulations section of the EID website.

COMPLEMENTARY TRAINING ACTIVITIES

 

TRAINING ACTIVITIES

The following training activities are mandatory throughout the completion of the Doctoral Thesis:

 

AF1. INITIATION SEMINAR TO THE DOCTORATE.

Duration: 8h.

Temporary planning: Mandatory 1st year activity. It will take place between October and December.

Place and those responsible for teaching: Seminar given by members of the Academic Committee, preferably in the center where the Program Coordinator is located. In the event that a student cannot attend, the person in charge of teaching will be their own Tutor.

Objective: It addresses the explanation of the basic starting aspects in the development of the Doctoral Thesis, collected in the Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the UCLM. In addition, it serves to establish a detailed planning of the rest of the training activities as well as of all the procedures of the Program

 

AF2. RESEARCH MANAGEMENT SEMINAR.

Duration: 10h.

Temporary planning: Mandatory activity once during the Thesis, to be carried out preferably in the 2nd year of membership in the Program. It will preferably be taught between the months of September and October.

Place and those responsible for teaching: Seminar given by members of the Academic Committee, preferably in the center where the Program Coordinator is located. In the event that a student cannot attend, the person in charge of teaching will be her own Tutor.

Objective: Seminar that addresses cross-cutting aspects related to research management, focusing on the following points: Knowledge of the sources of funding; Preparation of research projects; Management procedures for research projects (personnel, equipment, etc); Transfer of technology and intellectual property.

 

AF3. DOCTORAL DAYS OF THE UCLM.

Duration: 1 day in October or November.

Temporary planning: Mandatory activity once during the Thesis from the second year.

Place and those responsible for teaching: This is a transversal activity organized by the International Doctoral School of the UCLM, and each year it is held in a different Campus of the UCLM.

Objective: It is an activity in which doctoral students carry out presentations of their research, and learn about those made in other programs.

 

AF4. TRAINING SEMINARS OR WORKSHOPS IN SPECIFIC AREAS OF A LINE OF RESEARCH.

Duration: 2-3 days.

Temporary planning and place of teaching: Compulsory activity at least once during the Thesis from the second year. It is carried out on dates and places without determining as it depends on the organization of the aforementioned seminars or congresses to establish such planning.

Objective: Participate in specific scientific events of a line of research, preferably international.

 

AF5. MOBILITY. Two types are considered:

a) Short-term mobility: This is the mobility associated with carrying out the activities AF3 or AF4 when any of them takes place outside the town where the Center in which the Thesis is developed is located. It is a Mandatory activity.

b) Long-term mobility: This is mobility associated with research stays in other entities. It is not mandatory. Long-term mobility usually comprises periods of three to six months (the maximum time expressed in hours would correspond to that indicated at the beginning of this activity, that is, 900 h). It is usually carried out between April and October and is optional. There are no differences between full-time and part-time students. In most cases, it is associated with stays in international research centers, in order to obtain the mention of an international doctorate. Said mobility is prepared through the previous work of the tutor and the thesis supervisor, who consider the international collaborations that already exist, and already described in this report, or carry out the search for international research centers in which it is interesting that the doctoral student carry out a stay. After establishing contact with the international research center, and the latter having accepted that the doctoral student carry out a stay, the tutor and the thesis director inform the doctoral student of possible financial aid to allow this activity. The website of the UCLM Doctoral School informs about the different calls for financial aid at this link: https://blog.uclm.es/eid/becas-y-ayudas/.

 

 

All AFs are described in the Verification memory. They have an evaluation and control procedure by the TUTOR. In all cases, the control of the activity corresponds to the tutor of the doctoral student, verifying the attendance to it and personally evaluating the student's learning in the acquisition.

SPECIFIC PROCEDURES OF THE PROGRAM

1. OWN PROGRAM CRITERIA FOR THE ASSIGNMENT OF CO-DIRECTORS

The Doctorate Program "Chemical and Environmental Engineering" makes the assignment of Tutors, Directors, and possible Co-Directors of Theses and Co-Guardians following the general regulations existing for all Programs.
