The Master's Degree in Cosmetic Science and Engineering offers a unique combination of knowledge about traditional cosmetics and cosmetic engineering, something you will not find in other similar programs. In this Master’s Degree, you will explore disciplines such as materials science, controlled molecule release systems, tissue engineering and 3D printing, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence, all specifically applied to the cosmetics industry.

More than half the program is dedicated to laboratory practices, giving you the opportunity to put into practice the theoretical knowledge you have gained in the classroom. For example, in micro- and nanotechnology practices, you will be able to incorporate active ingredients in micro- and nano-sized particles, controlling the release of these ingredients depending on factors such as pH and temperature. This approach allows you to customize products, as each technology you learn about will allow you to incorporate a number of active ingredients, with each one released in response to specific stimuli. Are you ready to explore the dynamic world of Cosmetic Science and Engineering?

The cosmetics sector is in full growth as personal care is now considered essential in people's daily lives. Current trends are sustainability, achieving sustainable products aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); new technologies and customization, in order to produce innovative and personalized products for end users, as well as developing new, more advanced, and effective formulas; and finally, the use of natural ingredients is a growing trend, given that chemicals have been shown to be harmful in large quantities and regulations are constantly being updated on this basis.

Our Master's program addresses all these issues, thanks to a curriculum that includes traditional and innovative cosmetics, covering all the ways that cosmetic engineering can integrate new technology such as 3D printing, nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence.
