Program Description

Masters in Atomic Scale Modelling of Physical, Chemical and Bio-Molecular Systems
 (ATOSIM)

Sapienza University of Rome

AtoSiM is a two-year Physics or Chemistry Masters degree focused on computer modeling of physical, chemical and biomolecular systems.

AtoSiM is operated jointly by:

  • Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, France
  • Universiteit van Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • Università degli studi di Roma, "la Sapienza", Italy

This two-year degree provides a high-level qualification in the rapidly expanding field of computer modeling in physical, chemical and biomolecular sciences. This highly integrated Course covers a full range of techniques: from quantum mechanical atomistic descriptions to coarse-grained mesoscopic models. Particular fields of application include condensed matter and statistical physics, chemistry, physical chemistry, materials science and theoretical bio-molecular science.

The study program is divided into four parts. All students follow courses first in Amsterdam, then in Rome, and finally in Lyon to obtain a triple diploma. The fourth semester is devoted to research in laboratories either in Amsterdam, Rome, Lyon or one of our 21 additional partners.

Students obtain a triple degree. Admission into the master degree is decided on the basis of academic excellence by a selection committee composed of representatives from each partner institution. Applicants should have at least three years of prior studies majoring in physics, chemistry, engineering, applied mathematics or bio-informatics. Proof of English proficiency is also required.

Who can apply?

AtoSim welcomes applications from both EU and non-EU students with:
  • an excellent university record.
  • at least 3 years of prior studies.
  • major in one of the following fields: Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Applied Maths, Bioinformatics.

Triple diploma

The completion of the curriculum is rewarded by a triple diploma (3 diplomas). These degrees are:

  • Master de Sciences de la Matière, within the track « Physique, Chimie et Méthodes Numériques » for ENS-Lyon & UCB Lyon 1;
  • Master in Chemistry (track Molecular Simulation and Photonics) for Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam or University of Amsterdam or Master in Physics for University of Amsterdam;
  • Master in Physics (Laurea Magistrale) for University La Sapienza of Rome.
These degrees are recognized in Europe as research masters degree allowing the student to start a Ph.D. thesis. The courses offered in the four partner institutions are based on a two-year (120 ECTS) Masters degree.
This school offers programs in:
  • English
