Electronic structure is essential to understand the quantum mechanical behavior of electrons in materials, including stability
and reactivity. Computational chemistry is nowadays a versatile tool not only to support experimental evidences but also to
uncover more profound details that experiments by themselves cannot elucidate and to even predict properties of materials
without performing experiments. This class will be focused on several topics on computational quantum chemistry, ranging from
fundamental theories to practical calculations using softwares.

To acquire an in-depth understanding of basic electrochemical subjects and application case studies

- Acquire basic knowledge on quantum chemical calculations and their mathematical backgrounds
- Learn how to run first-principle simulations and analyze computational results
- Learn how to effectively write and present scientific reports
