The Amsterdam Modeling Suite (AMS) is an excellent collection of programs for teaching physical and computational chemistry.
The fully integrated graphical interface makes it easy to build molecules, to set up and follow calculations, and to visualize results (IR spectra and normal modes, UV/VIS spectra and transitions, orbital interaction diagrams, MOs, densities, DOS, band structures, trajectories, and much more).
With a classroom license, students can easily activate AMS on their own machines, or the license can be installed centrally by the University.
With more academics using AMS for their classes, more teaching material is becoming available as a starting point for your own computational chemistry course.
Try out AMS to see for yourself how easy it is to install, and start running and visualizing results!
You can also combine teaching and research licenses, contact us for the best option for your situation.
