Our MSc teacher Jörg Meyer won the faculty Teacher of the Year award for his work on the MSc course Density Functional Theory in Practice (DIP). "I am very honoured to win this prize," Jörg Meyer says. "Theoretical chemistry is still a bit of a niche. Since it builds heavily on maths, physics and computer science, it can be quite challenging for students and is usually not the most popular subject. My MSc course Density Functional Theory in Practice, which I developed from scratch, changed from an elective into a core course in the Chemistry programme. I’m delighted to contribute to making this niche a bit more accessible and hopefully also more popular."
