News from DCEXS-UPF
The Master of Multidisciplinary Research in Experimental Sciences (MMRES), which was launched in 2017 by the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and the DCEXS-UPF, has doubled the number of places (now 30) for its second edition in response to the increased demand, especially international, which already accounts for 40% of all applications. In addition, there is an increase in the average GPA of the students that have already been selected for the 2018-2019 edition (8.6), as compared to the 2017-2018 edition (7.5).
For the second edition, double the number of applications have already been received (57) as compared to the first edition (26), and the applications of the fourth registration period (open until June 1) have yet to be added. “What we really value is not, however, the quantitative increase in demand for the master, but rather the fact that the academic level and motivation of students who have applied for a place are also growing”, stated Roderic Guigó, researcher at CRG and associate professor at UPF. Guigó is the Co-Director of the Master along with Rob Sewell, Researcher and Academic Coordinator at The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO).
