RESPONSIBLE ORGAN

The responsible organ of the program of Electrochemical conjoint doctorate. Science and Technology is the academic commission of the doctorate. It is composed by the following professors:

  • Coordinator of the program of conjoint doctorate: Enrique Herrero Rodríguez, University of Alicante.
  • Iluminada Gallardo García, Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona.
  • Concepción Alonso Fuente, Autonomous University of Madrid.
  • Elvira Gómez Valentín, Universitat of Barcelona.
  • Mª Julia Arcos Martínez, University of Burgos.
  • José Miguel Rodríguez Mellado, University of Córdoba.
  • Jaume Puy Llorens, Universitat of Lleida.
  • Ángela Molina Gómez, University of Murcia.
  • Francisco Prieto Dapena, University of Seville.
  • Francisco Vicente Pedrós, University of Valencia.
  • Toribio Fernández Otero, Polytechnical University of Cartagena.

 

The functions of the academic commission are the following:

  1. Determine the guidelines and organise the offer and the development of the program of doctorate, looking after his academic excellence, and proposing them for his approval and presentation in front of the organs of government of both universities.
  2. Propose the coordinator of the program of doctorate. Said proposal will require the approval the absolute majority of the members of the commission.
  3. Propose the modification of the program.
  4. Encourage the international projection of the program.
  5. Improve the realisation of activities and conjoint actions of formative character, researcher, informative or strategic and, in particular, the utilisation by part of the doctorandos of the program of the instrumental means and the infrastructures contributed by all the institutions that back the program.
  6. Evaluate and ensure the quality of the program by means of the establishment and assessment of the corresponding indicators.
  7. Ratify the tutor and the director of thesis of each doctorate.
  8. Establish the specific requirements for the admission in the program of doctorate in accordance with the criteria that establish , which will have to be, anyway, adapted to the valid rule.
  9. Promote common formative activities on specific subjects of interest for the doctorate participants in the program, contributing like this to that they reach a more complete training, advanced and interdisciplinar.
  10. Favour the mobility of professors and PhD, by means of the available tools in each moment.
  11. Perform any another function related with the program of doctorate and that was not assigned to any another organ of the respective universities.

REQUIREMENTS OF ACCESS And CRITERIA OF ADMISSION

Will have access to the program of doctorate of Electrochemical. Science and Technology all the applicants that, fulfilling the requirements for the admission to the programs of doctorate of marked in the RD 99/2011, have a title of máster obtained in the areas of sciences, engineering or affine.

Criteria of admission:

a) Title of access to the program of doctorate: Until 5 points. This section marks of the following form:

  1. Be in possession of the title of Máster in Electrochemical. Science and Technology or have the diploma of studies advanced in the Doctorate of Electrochemical. Science and Technology regulated by the royal decree 778/1998: 5 points.
  2. Be in possession of a title obtained of máster of the EEES with a training in Electrochemical equivalent to the Master in Electrochemical: Science and Technology. 4,5 points.
  3. Be in possession of a title that give access to the program of doctorate in areas of Sciences, Engineering or affine areas that include, at least, 16 credits ECTS methodological and of training in investigation or equivalent and have realised the work of end of máster/degree or equivalent with character researcher: 3 points.

b) Global academic file of the title that give access to the program of doctorate: until 2 points. It will value so much the file of the title of degree (until 1,6 points) like the one of máster (until 0,4) points. In both cases, the file that have an average of 4 points in the scale 1-4 will have the maximum punctuation.

c) Academic results in subjects affine to the program of doctorate: until 2 points. It will add the number of credits of each subject related with the Electrochemical by the numerical qualification in the scale 1-4.

All these activities will have to be properly accredited by means of the following models:

RULE OF READING OF THESIS

In addition to the own rule of the School of Doctorate, the program of conjoint doctorate in Electrochemical. Science and Technology has established the following:

So that the academic commission of the program of doctorate can authorise the tank of a thesis doctoral, this will have to gather any of the following indications of quality.

  • A scientific production of derivative quality of the thesis. It will consider like indication of quality of the thesis the one who the same have results published in, at least a magazine, of international diffusion with index of impact included in the Journal Citation Reports. The PhD will have to be the first author of the publication, or the second if the first is the director of the thesis.
  • Internationalisation of the thesis. To receive to this procedure, the thesis, in addition to fulfilling with the exigible requirements legally so that it was presented and defended like thesis with International Quotation and the mentioned in the previous section, will have to explain also with additional scientific contributions that will not have to be necessarily of the type considered in the previous section. Anyway, it will have to be the first author, or, the second, if the first is the director of the thesis in said contributions.
