“Computer Chemistry” combines fundamental chemical knowledge and laboratory skills with intensive training in computer modeling of chemical systems.

The curriculum brings together the basic proficiencies in Inorganic, Organic, Physical and Analytical Chemistry, with Computer Science oriented courses as: Chemical Informatics and Bioinformatics, Databases and Programming, Computer Modeling in Chemistry and Computer-Aided Design of Biologically Active Substances.

The Bachelor program in “Computer Chemistry” is taught entirely in English.

Advanced language proficiency of students in this course is a prerequisite for their successful joining international exchange programs. This increases graduates’ opportunities for proper realization in all EU countries as qualified specialists in Computer chemistry or to continue their education in masters and doctoral programs in European Universities.

Students are trained to perform the following activities:

·       To work in chemical laboratories or to assist chemical production that uses computer systems and networks;

·       Transfer of international experience in development of new and improvement of already existing methods for analysis and testing of materials, intermediate and industrial products from pharmaceutical, cosmetics, agriculture and environmental objects;

·       Development, implementation and improvement of technology by software design of drugs, new materials, modeling and simulation of processes, creating programs and databases, expert systems, etc.;

·       Research in Chemistry, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Environmental Sciences, etc.;

·       Variety of career opportunities arising from the universal applicability of the acquired knowledge in Computational Chemistry.

Successful graduates may continue their education through the Master’s programs offered by The Faculty of Chemistry in theUniversityofPlovdivor any other Bulgarian or European university that offers Master’s programs in professional field Chemical science.

Graduates can also continue their education in programs of other professional fields at universities.
