As bioinformatics engineer, you are skilled in developing new algorithms and complex software implementations, primarily focusing on, but equally applicable outside the bioinformatics domain.
You will follow a module of ‘biologically oriented’ courses (9 credits) that will provide you with the basic domain knowledge to understand a data-driven biological problem. However, the major part of your curriculum (engineering module of 42 credits) will focus on advanced engineering and computer science techniques that elaborate on an already advanced knowledge obtained during your bachelor.
With a bachelor degree in Bioinformatics - Systems Biology at Ghent University, you can decide to become a bioinformatics scientist/bioengineer. A bioinformatics scientists applies (bio)informatics tools and techniques to understand a biological system or to solve an innovative research question.
Technological advances have turned biology in a data-driven science. The avalanche of molecular data enables key discoveries in biology, ecology and molecular evolution, drives innovation in biotech and pharma industry and supports medical and governmental decision making. However, the power of using these data for innovation depends on interdisciplinary skills to analyse, integrate and interpret the data.
