ERICA MORENO - BRAZIL
Acting Professor at Chemistry Institute, University of Brasilia
“ The TCCM Master introduced me in the stimulating world of simulations in Chemistry, with international focus, I had the opportunity to know professors and researchers coming from different areas of the theoretical chemistry.
At TCCM I made many friendship from different parts of the world, such friendships I keep for all my life. TCCM Master was an enjoyable experience. Best wishes for all member of this wonderful scientific fellowship. ”

Postdoc in AKGarcía group, Organic Chemistry Department, Muenster, Germany.
“ 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. ”

Publisher for Surface Science at Elsevier, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
“ The master was an excellent personal and professional experience. I learned a lot about the world of theoretical chemistry and I decided to do a PhD and 2 psotdocs in this field. In addition, I met people who became my colleagues and some of them even my best friends. ”
DAVID BALCELLS - SPAIN
Senior Researcher and PI, Hylleraas Centre, Univ. of Oslo (Norway).
“ The TCCM Master provided me with solid theoretical and practical foundations of computational chemistry. One of the best features was to bring together students from all over Spain at a single place and for a significantly long period of time (Salamanca for one month in 2002). I keep in contact with some of the people that I met there. Overall, I would rate this Master as one of the best actions taken during my PhD education . ”
SODIQ WAHEED - NIGERIA
PhD Student in Christov Computational Research Group, Department of Chemistry, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, USA.
“ 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. ”
