The European Master in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (TCCM) offers you the possibility to study a master in a topic of high impact and in which well trained professionals are highly demanded. Theoretical simulations are nowadays needed in all branches of Chemistry and Molecular Physics. Their range of applications include the design of new drugs in the Pharmaceutical Industry, new materials and nanodevices in Applied Physics or the prediction of the properties and reactivity of the new chemical compounds needed in the Chemical Industry.
The TCCM master will teach you the fundamental of Quantum Chemistry, which is at the core of most accurate techniques in Theoretical Chemistry, but will also provide you with the necessary skills to use and modify the most advanced software codes used to perform simulations of real systems. You will also learn to simulate complex systems by combining techniques based on Quantum Mechanics with classical Molecular Dynamics techniques.

“ The TCCM Master opened my eyes on the countless possibilities of the use of computational simulations in the Chemistry world. It gathered excellent senior scientists that were sharing their experience with the students. Excellent opportunity for the future PhD. Hard time study/working period that strengthened friendly ties. The international friendships that bounded us that time we keep enjoying nowadays. ”

“ Erasmus Mundus TCCM master was a perfect starting point to understand the world of computational chemistry and to acquire knowledge about most important software in this field. It helped me to identify in which direction I want to orient my career in science and opened me a door to many international positions for PhD and jobs in industry.”

“ TCCM Master remains one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I enjoyed every bit of the program. The Master program introduced me into the field of computational chemistry. The intensive course part of the master program was very superb because it was after the course that I decided on the area of computational chemistry I want to explore. The research experiences that were garnered during the second year of the program have been contributing positively to my current PhD program In addition, I was able to tour Europe and make new friends from different countries. Thanks to the EMTCCM committees with the support of the European Union for this wonderful opportunity that was bestowed on me. ”
