The University of Bahrain is one of the leading universities in Bahrain and it holds itself the highest rank all in Bahrain. It is a national university and it is located in Zallaq Bahrain. Being one of the most renowned universities in Bahrain this university offers courses and research opportunities in different fields of education.
Different campuses of the University of Bahrain are spread out all over Bahrain and this university has multiple departments. The college of science by the University of Bahrain offers students graduate and professional degrees. This college has been providing the best education along with research opportunities for the people.
Workshop on software chemistry
This workshop o software chemistry held by the college of science by the University of Bahrain is a clear example of this college’s innovative ideas about teaching their students. These workshops let you explore more about your subject and you get to experience it from a wider perspective. This workshop has been the first international workshop ever held by the college of science. This workshop was about practical training in computer software chemistry.
The workshop was held on 19th June 2022. The whole event was organized remotely and almost one hundred people participated in this workshop. The people who attended this workshop include the faculty members, students, researchers, fellow academics, and engineers. This workshop was a huge success in the field of Software chemistry.
Details of the Workshop
During this workshop, the head of the department of chemistry Dr. Ahmed Abdelfattah Hussain talked about the importance of computer software in chemistry. With the help of this software, all the theoretical and practical chemistry problems can be solved approximately to the mathematical accuracy. He talked about algorithms and computer programs that determine the chemistry of molecules along with the other aspects of it like their reactivity, vibrational frequency, and total energy.
Dean of College of Science, Dr. Mustafa Al-Hilo was appreciative of this department holding annual activities which help with the awareness of the use of different programs within the scientific and academic circles and societies. Later o the students with different projects were invited to benefit from the workshop.
This workshop provided them with the opportunity to learn and practice solving different problems with the use of these modeling programs and software. With the help of other workshops, participants were able to learn a great deal about the use of computer software in chemistry.
Participation of Different Universities
Lecturers from all over the world were invited to the University of Bahrain to give lectures on these very topics as well. Lecturers and trainers from the University of Jordan, the University of Bahrain, COMSATS university of Pakistan, and the University of Exeter In the United Kingdom were there and gave lectures on various topics of Computer software in chemistry.
This workshop taught students a great deal about identifying problems using Gaussian, GaussView, and Spatial Algorithms. With their help of them, they would also get a lot of guidance in writing research proposals and articles. This would also help a great deal in their future research.
