Program of Study
To educate highly competitive and international human resources who are capable of applying analytical chemistry knowledge, having emphasis on the quantitative determination of chemical levels present on substances that represent a potential risk to the environment and life.
Promote research on the development of appropriate methodologies for dealing with dangerous substances present in soil and air can cause risks to the health of organisms.
Connect UANL advances in research with the technological development of our country.
Interact with industries of the region and the country about advances in matters of Chemistry.
The graduate studies in Environmental Analytical Chemistry aims at educating highly competitive and international human resources who are capable of applying the scientific method in interdisciplinary manners to solve problems within the scientific and technological demands of environmental standards.
Applicants to the Master of Science Major in Environmental Analytical Chemistry must be professionals in related areas of Environmental Analytical Chemistry; with basic skills of verbal and mathematical reasoning, speaking, and writing. They have integrating abilities in critical thinking, self-directed learning, innovation, and experiments, with a marked sense of responsibility, discipline, and respect for the environment. Additionally they posses basic knowledge in the areas of Chemistry, Mathematics, Analytical Chemistry, and Environmental Sciences.
Graduates of Master of Science Major in Environmental Analytical Chemistry would effectively adapt to government or industry institutions that require monitoring and evaluation levels of substances that are considered to be dangerous to the environment. Graduates will be capable to develop new clean technologies and at the same time finding solutions in favor of sustainable development. Graduate can also venture into teaching, this will provide the opportunity to continue with doctoral degrees in national and international academic institutions.
Generate competitive human resources in Environmental Analytical Chemistry, with the necessary skills to perform basic and applied research supporting the sustainable development of our country contributing to the development of clean technologies.
Continuing Professional Development
Graduates have the opportunity to update their knowledge with a doctoral degree. The doctorate in Environmental and Analytic Chemistry comprises advanced courses by highly qualified professors, which can help professionals update expertise for their more competitive environments
Professionals in Environmental Analytical Chemistry will be exposed to operational risks relating to the products, machines, and equipment of their workplace. In laboratories, hazards are mainly associated with handling chemical products. It is very important to be aware of National and International regulations for chemical hazards
Applicants must have related undergraduate studies and a minimum GPA of 80 out of 100. They must complete an application form and deliver the necessary documents at the Office of Student Services of our School of Graduate Studies, as well as fulfilling the enrollment requirements and complying with the entrance provisions of the UANL General Regulations of Graduate Studies and the School of Chemistry Internal Regulations.
Applicant must pass the mandatory tests: the General Knowledge Test (EXANI III, Spanish acronym), the English Proficiency Test (EXCI, Spanish acronym), the Specific Knowledge Test, a psychometric test, and an interview. For any special case, the Master Degree Committee will determine whether applicants are admitted or rejected
