Euromaster on Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2019 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Objective The International Master in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling aims to provide students with a sound background in this area and to promote student mobility within a large network of research laboratories.Course duration Two years (120 ECTS)Brief DescriptionTheoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling is nowadays a powerful and almost mandatory tool in modern science. In the first year the Master course includes compulsory subjects such as Mathematics, Statistical and Molecular Quantum Mechanics; Programming and Numerical Methods; Group Theory; Basic Reaction Dynamics; and Basic Spectroscopy, delivered at the local (national) level. The second year includes an International Intensive Course organized each year in a different country. The teaching is focused on advanced Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (Advanced Electronic Structure and Condensed Matter Theory; Molecular and Chemical Dynamics; Advanced Computational Techniques; and Computer Modelling and Simulation) as well as on their applications in Nanoscience; Biological systems; Materials by design; Reactivity and Catalysis; Excited States; Atmosphere and Space. The second part of the second year is a research project. The Master offers the possibility of carrying out this research activity in any of the research groups included in the consortium of 47 European Institutions which launched the Master in 2006. A Master Thesis must be defendedat the end of the Master in the home Institution.An international experienceThe master studies include a significant mobility, since the research associated with the Master Thesis has to be carried out in two different laboratories of two different countries. Hence, the scheme offers our students the possibility of developing specific abilities to work and to adapt themselves to different work environments; the capability to transmit ideas fluently in at least two European languages; the contact with high performance computing facilities and architectures; the contact with relevant international researchers in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling through their participation in a mandatory Intensive Course, which is organized every month of September in a different country; their participation in International symposia in the field which is encouraged and facilitated in the second year of the Master. Particular attention is also devoted to the students' transferable skills, in particular their capability to present their work and achievements in a well-structured way, trough the mandatory presentation of oral progress reports of their research activity. This basic scheme is enriched with several one-week International Schools on selected topics, usually launched in collaboration with other European Institutions, such as the Centre Europeen de Calcul Atomique et Moleculaire. The framework of the Master also contributes to a cultural integration of the students by favouring their interaction with the cultural activities in the campus of the Universities in which they study and/or investigate.A number of EU-funded scholarships are offered to the best qualified candidates.Career prospects At the end of the Master course the students will be prepared to apply and develop new methods and computational codes, and to follow future doctoral studies in Chemistry, Physics, Life Sciences or Materials Science. They will be also able to develop professional activities as experts in molecular design in the pharmaceutical, petrochemical and new-materials industry, or in any company as computational experts. Diploma The students who successfully complete the Master studies are entitled to receive a Master Diploma issued by the University in which they were registered and a Joint Title with a Diploma Supplement issued by the Coordinating Institution.Website:
