@Mithoron Yes.. it is pretty broad, but all the programmes are focused to give an overall view of the subject. Some of them have also have molecular dynamics, other ones put in the mix AI or machine learning, etc. The specialisation has that name, but any research I will do (if any) in the future will be the aligned with the department interests (and they are all different, of course).
@BuckThorn I considered it, but since it was related to chemistry I thought it would fit more in this place. Yeah, you are right. Undergraduate degrees are always taught in the mother tongue of the country, so I will have to learn it, but that's ok. Thank you very much for that information in ACS, time to read. The thing I fear the most is the worst possible scenario i.e., ending the degree with a paper in my hand, and if that paper is useful in the job market
Maybe everything will be alright, and I will find a place in IT or the field that you referred to in the last message. A similar situation would be the one that chemists tell me in Argentina. When things go wrong, they will always find a place to work in water quality, reporting Cd, Pb, Hg, etc and some statistics. That's not what they were hoping for, but they are safe

@MetalStorm Getting a job depends nominally on your experience and skills (the thesis, degree and refs only serve as supporting evidence) and on what kind of job you are willing to apply for. But yeah, I understand the feeling. BTW have you considered Australia? The seasons will be familiar :) Argentina probably has a bright future.
 
@BuckThorn I didn't consider Australia, don't know why though. I've studied all Europe, and all the master's in this field are for the most part in Norway/Denmark/Sweden. There are two in France, and an 'Erasmus type' shared between Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
What type of bright future you mean in Argentina (what is ssplb)? The average income in Argentina is about 180 USD/month (this is real, lol). Moreover, there is an uncertainty whether the new president will support public education (research in Argentina comes 99.999% from the most important public university). There are current manifestations of PhD students because their salary will be cut off

Q: Why aren’t electrolyzers made like this(two inter-locking coils)?

Anish KommireddyThe maximum current(based on how long you want your electrolyzer to last) is based on the electrode size according to my minimal research. The larger the electrode the more current is allowed. So why not make the electrodes as big as possible using the design in the illustration below(that I made...

@MetalStorm I'm sorry to hear that. I don't follow local news from Argentina. To give a bland answer, Argentina has always seemed to have a bright future. Call it a gut if somewhat useless feeling.

@BuckThorn You'll never catch me alive!

@MetalStorm The word is rather bioinformatics these days, afaik. Drug design, modelling proteins, receptors in particular, nucleic acids
