This [course_title] provides an introduction to the most popular computational methods for studying the electronic structure and properties of molecules. It is designed in a very systematic and logical manner for self-learning of a virtual learner. You will learn how to perform state-of-the-art quantum-chemical calculations and become able to use these in a number of situations, including applications in synthetic chemistry (calculation of reaction paths), accurate prediction of physical properties (for example, dipole moments and Gibbs free energies), and interpretation of spectra (XPS, IR, UV).

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

**Certification**

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
