About

The Master of Science in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the Departments of Mathematical Sciences and Biological Sciences, at University of Texas at Dallas with the former serving as the administrative unit. 

Overview

The Bioinformatics and Computational Biology program at University of Texas at Dallas offers a choice between two tracks. One is designed for students with a general background in science/engineering, whereas the other is designed for students with a background in biological sciences. 

To build further expertise, both tracks offer a choice of three elective groups, namely, computer science-oriented, statistics-oriented, and biology-oriented elective groups. Both also offer opportunities for research. Students are expected to choose a track and an elective group based on their backgrounds and interests in consultation with the graduate advisor for the program.

Careers

The Graduates of the program are expected to either pursue a doctoral program in a related field or seek employment in biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, research labs, hospitals, and software companies.
