Coordinating University:University of Santiago de CompostelagoalsThe degree in Chemical Engineering must train professionals who know the design of processes and products, including the conception, calculation, construction, commissioning and operation of equipment and facilities where processes are carried out in which the matter undergoes changes in its composition , state or energy content, characteristic of the chemical industry and other related sectors such as pharmaceutical, biotechnological, food or environmental. Likewise, this training will allow you to hold positions in the manufacturing industry, in design and consulting companies, technical, legal or commercial advisory tasks, in administration and in teaching at the secondary and undergraduate university levels, as well as free exercise of the profession and the preparation of opinions and expert opinions.
The degree must imply, on the one hand, a general training in basic sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology) and in basic technological subjects; on the other, a specific training in chemical engineering to be able to approach the study of systems in which substances undergo a modification in their composition, energy content or physical state.
Basic skillsThat students have demonstrated to possess and understand knowledge in an area of study that starts from the base of general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, although supported by advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that imply knowledge from the forefront of your field of study;
That students know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and possess the competencies that are usually demonstrated through the elaboration and defense of arguments and the resolution of problems within their area of study;
That students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their area of study) to make judgments that include reflection on relevant issues of a social, scientific or ethical nature;
That students can transmit information, ideas, problems and solutions to both a specialized and non-specialized audience;
That the students have developed those learning skills necessary to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy.CurriculumItineraries or mentions:

Credit transfer and recognition:
It consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different education for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
It implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, at the same or at another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official degree, will be included.
The USC regulates these two figures in the following regulations published on the web:
Recognition of university activities and transversal competences of the usc:
Students will be able to obtain up to a maximum of 12 optional credits for the recognition of the activities contemplated in article 12.8 of RD 1393/2007 and of the transversal competences of the USC. Cross-cutting competences for all USC Master's degrees are considered instrumental knowledge of (1) foreign languages; (2) Galician language, and (3) information and communication technologies. In any case, the maximum number of recognizable credits for the activities of article 12.8 of RD 1393/2007 will be 6.Professional outingsThe bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering qualifies for the profession of Industrial Technical Engineer (Order CIN / 351/2009, which establishes the requirements for the verification of official university degrees that enable the exercise of the profession of Industrial Technical Engineer and Law 12/1986 of April 1 on regulation of the professional attributes of Architects and Technical Engineers; regulations that in the future regulate the profession). The degree includes all the competencies of the specific Technology: Industrial Chemistry that includes the aforementioned regulations.
Although, given the versatility of the chemical engineer, there is a classification in 27 sectors, 93% of employment is mainly concentrated in seven:Materials and Polymers
Plant design and contracting
Chemical Process Industry
Oil and Gas Sector
