Erasmus Mundus Master in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling

Program Information

Degree Offered:

Master of Science

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Modern chemistry is unthinkable without the achievements of theoretical and computational chemistry. These disciplines became mandatory tools for the molecular sciences towards the end of the 20th century, and they will undoubtedly form the vanguard of the new era that lies ahead. From this perspective, the training and formation of new generations of computational and theoretical chemists with broad knowledge is of paramount importance. Experts from seven European universities have decided to join forces. Coordinated by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, the initiative for a European Master's programme in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (TCCM) was launched in 2005. In 2007, the programme was awarded accreditation by the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association (ECTNA). In 2009, it was selected for the Erasmus Mundus Action for joint Master's courses, which came into effect in 2010. This programme is organised in cooperation with: - Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (coordinating institution) - Universiteit Groningen - Università degli Studi di Perugia - Universidade do Porto - Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse III - Universitat de Valencia. This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.


120 ECTS

International Student Requirements:

Bachelor in Chemistry, Physics or Material Science, or any equivalent level if authorized by the legislation of the corresponding European Country. Other scientific bachelors can be accepted, provided the student takes complementary levelling courses, under the supervision of his local Tutor. Internationally recognised English proficiency certificate equivalent to a TOEFL score of minimum 500/213, or an IELTS score of 6. The same criteria are applied to students coming from third countries. For students coming from third countries or having a Bachelor different from those mentioned above, the prerquisite knowledge level, as specified above, should be certified. The selection of the students applying for the Master is made (this applies both to European and third-country students) by the International Committee of the Master.
