About

At the University of Tübingen, students holding an above-average Bachelor’s degree in Bioinformatics, Biology, Computer Science or an equivalent degree who are interested in current bioinformatics research and in modern methods applied in life sciences may continue their studies to obtain a Master’s degree.

Overview

The Master’s program in Bioinformatics at the University of Tübingen offers a wide choice of courses in computer science and life sciences and allows students to choose their subjects according to interest. Students will attend lectures, seminars, and project lab courses under the supervision of scientists who introduce them to basic and applied research and current topics in bioinformatics.

The Master’s program in bioinformatics is research-oriented and enables graduates to research issues regarding the application of computer science and bioinformatics in the life sciences.

Career opportunities and prospects

  • Due to very fast technological developments in the use of high-throughput techniques for data generation in biology, biotechnology and the pharmaceutical industry, there is an ever growing need for bioinformaticians. 
  • Since this is a highly demanding area, a PhD degree is usually required. Currently, many bioinformatics graduates either directly enter industrial positions in biology research areas or first obtain a PhD degree.

Programme Structure

  • Students will attend lectures, seminars, and project lab courses under the supervision of scientists who introduce them to basic and applied research and current topics in bioinformatics.
  • As interdisciplinarity is an important aspect, the Master’s thesis will be supervised by both a professor of bioinformatics or computer science and a professor or faculty member of the life sciences.
