Universidad Autonoma De Madrid

Introduction

UAM is a modern university that takes an interest in its students' overall education; it is recognized internationally, and is classed among the 200 best universities in the world. We pay particular attention to the environment, and is proud of its efforts towards attaining an environmentally sustainable campus.

It is Spain's benchmark university in terms of research, with a number of university research institutes on campus, some of its own and others in collaboration with the Spanish National Research Council.

UAM graduates have a high rate of placement in the job market, with 90% of those seeking employment being placed within four and a half months on average. It has a Job Forum , which has recently become the university job forum with the highest number of participating businesses and institutions.

UAM has international exchange agreements with some of the best universities in the world, for example through the Erasmus exchange programme with European universities; over 1,000 UAM students enjoy exchange study visits. We also have privileged relations with a number of Latin American universities.


As part of its commitment to the society we maintains strong links of co-operation with Municipalities, Institutions and Businesses, and is party to numerous co-operation agreements and framework agreements.

We have a large number of cultural activities, including summer courses and contemporary humanity programmes.We host the longest running and most prestigious season of university-organised concerts, which takes place every year in the National Music Auditorium.


UAN has numerous sports facilities, including covered and open swimming pools. The UAM holds various competitions, both in-house and inter-university, and its students are university champions in a number of different sports. The UAM participates in the High-level Athletes Programme financed by the National Sports Council.

Master

European master in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (TCCM)

Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Spain Madrid

The TCCM Master is meant to prepare experts in using and developing molecular sciences computational techniques to either work with innovative pharmaceutical. [+]

Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (TCCM) play a key role in the development of modern chemistry, biochemistry, chemical biology, physics and material science. This has motivated six Universities leaders in the key disciplines of the field to set a consortium and offer a joint TCCM Master course. The creation of this joint Master has two main objectives:    * establish a European standard for Master training;    * promote the international mobility of Master studentsin the TCCM field. This idea has successfully attracted other 41 European higher education Institutions which have decided to join the TCCM Master consortium and has convinced the European Chemistry Thematic Network (ECTN) to support the initiative.The TCCM Master is meant to prepare experts in using and developing molecular sciences computational techniques to either work with innovative pharmaceutical, petrochemical and new-materials industries or to follow future doctoral studies in Chemistry, Physics, Life or Material Sciences. It is articulated in 120 ECTS credits and can be accessed by students having a Bachelor in Chemistry, in Physics or in Material Science. Other scientific bachelors can also be accepted (provided that the student integrates his/her preparation as recommended by the local Tutor).In the first year (M1), 12 ECTS credits are devoted to a levelling course, 3 to the improvement of the student's command of a European language and 30 to compulsory courses in Mathematics, Statistical Mechanics, Molecular Quantum Mechanics, Programming and Numerical Methods; Group Theory; Reaction Dynamics and Spectroscopy delivered locally in the official language chosen by the participating Institution. The remaining 15 ECTS credits will be devoted to knowledge acquisition in Advanced Chemical Physics, Thermodynamics, Spectroscopy, Chemical Dynamics, Solid State Chemistry or other subjects chosen freely after advice by the student's supervisor.The second year (M2), has a marked international character, and includes teaching and research activities. 24 credits will be devoted to the acquisition of a solid background in advanced Theoretical chemistry and Computational Modelling subjects (Advanced Electronic Structure Theory; Molecular and Chemical Dynamics; Advanced Computational Techniques; Computer Modelling and Simulation; Condensed Matter Theory) and related applications in Nano Science and Technology, Models of Biological systems; Materials by design; Reactivity and Catalysis; Excited State; Atmosphere and Space processes. For this purpose a mandatory four-weeks Intensive course will be organized. Lectures of the Intensive course will be delivered by the best specialists of the consortium and experts taken from third countries. The remaining 36 credits will be devoted to research activity. Compulsorily, part of this research activity (the equivalent to 18 ECTS credits) will be carried out in a member Institution of the consortium in a different country.The defence of the Master Thesis at the home Institution will conclude M2 and will entitle the student to bear a Master degree in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling delivered by his/her home Institution jointly with the other members of the Consortium....
