This master is not focused on professional practice. Master's program is highly focused on research and academic specialization. Main professional outings include teaching and professional research in public and private organizations. The research-based approach followed in the master may facilitate access to professional outings with a research profile in the industry.
The study of complex systems is not only part of basic science and research, but it is also part of applied areas of innovation in a wide variety of fields. As examples we can mention: the study and decoding of the human genome, the analysis and prediction of the evolution of indicators and economic (Stock Market, macroeconomic data) or industrial variable (electrical or water consumption), the design and manufacture of new materials (for the semiconductor industry, plastics and polymers, etc.) or the study of meteorology and the global ocean dynamics. We can also cite the field of complex fluids as one of the most active ones in the demand for researchers in the industry. Indeed, the relationship between microscopic structure and macroscopic dynamics achieves utmost relevance in every industrial process involving polymeric fluids, emulsions, suspensions or interfacial processes. From this perspective, this program is aimed at training researchers in methods for studying complex systems and their scientific and technological applications. Furthermore, since the study of complex systems involves topics that traditionally and academically belonged to different fields, the master program has a strong interdisciplinary nature.
