The EaStCHEM Research School of Chemistry offers a flexible online-distance-learning programme leading to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Computational Chemistry and Modelling. The programme is suitable for students with an undergraduate degree in Chemistry or a related subject.
The programme is taught entirely online, so there is no need to be in Edinburgh or to take a career break - the programme can be studied from anywhere in the world with a good internet connection!
Why Study Computational Chemistry?
Computational chemistry is the development and practical application – through high-performance computing – of quantum and classical mechanics (and informatics) to the study of chemical processes ranging from fundamental spectroscopic events in the gas phase to the nature of protein-drug interactions. Computational chemistry techniques are recognised as important tools in the chemical sciences where they are employed to answer questions posed by fundamental science and to challenging problems faced by industry.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Computational Chemistry and Modelling provides a broad knowledge and understanding of the theory underpinning modern computational chemistry alongside practical training on using a variety of computational chemistry software.
