About Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling at KU Leuven

Modern chemistry would be unthinkable without the achievements of theoretical and computational chemistry. These disciplines became an essential tool for the molecular sciences towards the end of the 20th century, and they will undoubtedly mark the new era that lies ahead. From this perspective, training and educating new generations of computational and theoretical chemists with a broad, practice-based knowledge is of paramount importance. Experts from several European universities have come together to do just that.

What is the programme all about?

Find your way into the cutting edge of contemporary chemistry. Theoretical and computational models of chemistry are at the vanguard of the new era in the molecular sciences. The aim of the programme is to train scientists who are able to address a wide range of problems in modern chemical, physical and biological sciences through the combination of theoretical and computational tools

The Erasmus Mundus Master of Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling is a joint initiative of and organised by: 

  • Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (coordinating institution), Spain
  • Universiteit Groningen, the Netherlands
  • KU Leuven, Belgium
  • Università degli Studi di Perugia, Italy
  • Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse III, France
  • Universitat de Valencia, Spain

Structure

The programme is organised over two years:

The first stage introduces you to concepts and methods. The core of the programme is an intensive international summer course intended to bring all participants to a common level of excellence. It takes place during the summer between stage 1 and stage 2 and runs over four weeks in total. Coursework is taught by a select group of invited international experts.

The second stage of the programme is devoted to tutorials covering the material dealt with in the intensive course and to a thesis project carried out in part at another university within the consortium.

The intensive course is organised at the partner institutions on a rotating basis.

Strengths

The Department of Chemistry aims to develop and maintain leading, internationally renowned theoretical and computational research programmes dedicated to solving fundamental and applied problems

As well as being able to participate in research led by groups in Leuven, students in the programme can draw upon the research expertise in the different partner universities

You’ll have the opportunity to specialise in research relating to

  • Modelling of catalysis, both homogeneous and heterogeneous
  • Modelling of biomolecular systems, using both classical and quantum mechanical methods
  • Photochemistry and photophysics
  • Materials and nanomaterials
  • New theoretical algorithms and methodologies
