The Master's Programme in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry- Chemistry from Uppsala University, provides a firm basis in theoretical and computational chemistry and a cutting-edge expertise in the field of electronic structure calculations for molecules and materials, molecular dynamics simulations, reaction dynamics and spectroscopy-related research areas.


The Master's Programme in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry- Chemistry from Uppsala University, will give you in-depth knowledge of advanced topics of theoretical and computational chemistry and is developed in cooperation with world leading research groups in this field at the university. 

You will have lecturers who are experts in, e.g., chemical bonding and electronic structure theory, molecular dynamics simulations, and reaction dynamics and you will have the opportunity to do your degree project in a ​dynamic and world-class research environment using state-of-the art computational methods and equipment.


During the programme you can expect to:

  • get a personal mentor who helps you prepare for your future career
  • build a foundation that will allow you to embark on advanced studies in a range of modern research fields in academia or in industry
  • be a part of a university with two Nobel prizes in chemistry.

Programme Structure

Courses included:

  • You will study chemistry courses which provide you with the theoretical and experimental skills needed for the subsequent semesters.
  • Some of these courses are common to other specialisations in the Master Programme in Chemistry. In the very first course, you will also meet many of the professors in the different fields of chemistry giving seminars about the current trends in their respective research fields. 
  • The first semester ends with a profile course in theoretical chemistry.
