The Nordic Master Program in Computational Chemistry and Physics offers a comprehensive and highly competitive training program run by a team of collaborating partner universities each with their own specialization in the computational disciplines.
The purpose of the program is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of computational chemistry and physics, highlighting basic concepts and methods as well as important application areas, like chemical catalysis for sustainable energy, atmospheric chemistry, molecular devices for photonics and electronics, biomolecular engineering, nano-technology and properties of modern matrials. A strong emphasis is placed on dealing with reaction dynamics and material properties with descriptions that transcend scales in length and time, and that connects atomistic, even electronic, structures to properties of macroscopic matter. Students will receive education comprising trans-disciplinary aspects of theoretical modeling. The innovative aspects of the program are related to the course curriculum as such as well as to the E-science competence that will be implemented in the teaching. Although the curriculum focuses on basic concepts in the area of computational chemistry and physics, a range of engineering problems of practical importance will be included. Participants will also gain proficiency in project design and implementation in software engineering projects and their applications.
