This Spanish interuniversity master's degree first edition took place in 2004. The master's degree was awarded the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association Eurolabel in 2007 (renewed in 2012) and was recognized as Erasmus Mundus master's degree in 2009 (renewed in 2013). At present, 14 Spanish universities and 5 from other countries in Europe are participating, with an application for an Erasmus Plus Joint Master's Degree still under assessment, which would include more European universities and the University of Barcelona in the consortium.
This master's degree has two main objectives:
- to establish a European standard for studies focused in theoretical chemistry and computational modelling; and
- to promote international mobility among master's students.
The course has a study load of 120 ECTS credits, spread across two academic years, and can be accessed by students graduated in Chemistry, Physics, Material Sciences, or any other scientific course.

Learning objectives

  • To establish a European standard for studies focused on theoretical chemistry and computational modelling research.

  • To train experts in the use and development of computational techniques in molecular sciences, in order to work with new materials in the pharmaceutical, petrochemical and new materials industry.

  • To prepare students for doctoral programmes in chemistry, physics, life sciences or materials science.

  • To promote international mobility among research students.

  • To provide a high-level postgraduate qualification for students from a wide range of countries, including those outside of Europe.
