Program Overview

Program Description:
The aim of the programme is to train scientists that are able to address a wide range of problems in modern chemical, physical and biological sciences through the combination of theoretical and computational tools. For students coming from third countries or holding a Bachelor's degree different from those mentioned in the admission requirements, the possession of the following (or equivalent) subjects at the level of the Chemistry Eurobachelor must be certified: - Chemical Bonding, - Atomic and Molecular Structure and Intermolecular Interactions, - General Physics, - Mathematics, - General Physical Chemistry, - Thermodynamics and Kinetics, - Spectroscopy. Some deficiencies in mathematics, physics or chemistry may be remedied through the preparatory programme. However, if there are deficiencies in more than two of these areas, the applicant will not be accepted. A sufficient knowledge of academic and scientific English is a prerequisite to admission.

Get in at the bleeding edge of contemporary chemistry! Theoretical and computational chemistry are marking the new era that lies ahead in the molecular sciences. The Erasmus Mundus Master of Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling is a joint initiative of seven European Universities, including KU Leuven. A two-year Erasmus Mundus Master's Programme co-ordinated by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. It will train you to master a wide range of theoretical and computational tools. The first year brings all participants to a common level of excellence. The second year starts with a four-week intensive course taking place in the summer between the two years. It welcomes several international experts as lecturers and is organised by one of the participating universities (Valencia in September 2011). The remainder of the second year is devoted to tutorials on the material of the intensive course and to a thesis project, carried out in part at one of the other universities in the consortium. 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.
