Master of Science in Computational Biology in MTU (Part-time, Online)
Are you a graduate from one of the biological sciences or related disciplines, wishing to upskill and gain advanced computational and data analysis skills?
The MSc in Computational Biology at Munster Technological University (MTU) is a part-time, fully online 2-year programme starting September 20th 2021. Graduates from the MSc in Computational Biology will possess high-level knowledge in biological science and computational skills, which can be applied to the analysis, interpretation, and visualisation of large biological datasets.
No background knowledge or experience in Computer Science is required. Students will undertake a series of modules designed to develop these skills from scratch, as well as taking advanced modules in biological sciences that complement the computer science components. There will be advanced biology modules (Synthetic Biology, Omics Technologies, Bioinformatics, Applied Genomics, Enzymes & Therapeutics and Structural Biology) combined with computer science and statistics (Scientific Programming for Biologists, Data Processing & Visualisation, Machine Learning in Biology, Applied Statistics for Biology and Deep Learning).
The programme will be delivered online using MTUs state of the art e-learning platform. This model will allow students to work full-time while studying part-time. The programme is delivered over a minimum of four semesters.
