AtoSiM is a two-year Physics or Chemistry Masters degree focused on computer modelling of physical, chemical and biomolecular systems. AtoSiM is operated jointly by:

This two-year degree provides a high-level qualification in the rapidly expanding field of computer modeling in physical, chemical and bio-molecular 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 forth semester is devoted to research in laboratories either in Amsterdam, Rome, Lyon or one of our 21 additional partners.
