About

The aim of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling programme at KU Leuven 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.

Overview

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
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

In addition to commanding a sound theoretical knowledge in chemistry and computational modelling, you will be equipped to apply your mastery of code in a work environment or to develop new codes to address emerging specifications in the fields of research or production. 

You will have attained the necessary skills to pursue a scientific career as a doctoral student in chemistry, physics or material science. You will also be qualified to work as an expert in molecular design in the pharmaceutical industry, at petrochemical companies and in the new materials industry. You will also have a suitable profile to work as a computational expert.
