Course summary

Computational chemistry is the application of computer based methods to chemical problems. This ranges from designing new molecules for drug applications to explaining the mechanisms of reactions and properties by consideration of atomic and molecular structure.The increasing role for computational chemistry in the modern chemistry and engineering sectors requires qualified candidates that have strong understanding of both chemistry and computational principles. This new programme has been designed to provide these skills, with a curriculum that integrates chemical and computational aspects, and introduces core concepts of atomic and molecular structure, reactivity and spectroscopy from theoretical, practical and computational viewpoints.You’ll develop skills in:◾software development and implementation◾mathematical foundations of common computational methodologies◾the use of industrial standard software packages to investigate chemical problems including solid-state materials, biological molecules, chemical reactions and to predict spectra◾selecting suitable types of calculation to solve chemical problems◾presenting reasoned arguments based on computational results to explain experimental findings◾communicating chemical and computational ideas to different groupsYou will be taught by leading research scientists in these fields, and on graduation you’ll have the skills you need to make an impact in a variety of scientific fields.MChem Chemistry – Mathematical and Computational Chemistry is the only specialised undergraduate programme in computational chemistry in England and Wales.**Professional accreditation**Students can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).**Rankings**Ranked 18th in the UK for Chemistry in the Guardian University League Tables 2019.Our BSc and MChem Chemistry programmes received 94% overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2020.
