CHEM 676. Introduction to Computational Quantum Chemistry. 3 Credits.

This is a mathematically non-rigorous introduction to procedures and capabilities of basic computational quantum chemistry with practical aspects on using common computational chemistry software. {Also offered for undergraduate credit - see CHEM 476.}.


The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers programs leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Chemistry. At the start of the first year of study, entering graduate students take entrance examinations in analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, as well as chemistry and biochemistry. The graduate student progress committee uses these exams for advisory purposes in recommending course work during the first year. Consequently, programs are individually tailored to the needs of each student. Typically, course work is completed in one to one-and-a-half years for M.S. candidates, and two years for Ph.D. students, leaving later years for full-time thesis or dissertation research. The typical time to complete a graduate degree averages three years for the M.S. degree and approximately five years for the Ph.D.
