Biomedical Data Science at Nanyang Technological University is the first graduate programme in the Asia-Pacific region offering data science training for specific application in the biomedical domain.


Biomedical Data Science at Nanyang Technological University  is a joint collaboration between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) Singapore.

Key facts:

The programme duration is one year (maximum two years) for full-time studies. Students enrolled for part-time studies may complete this over a period of two years (max four years). The curriculum is developed by current practitioners and informed by industry experts in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and tech sectors. Unlike other taught graduate programmes, the curriculum emphasizes on hands-on learning and practical skill acquisition. You will have the opportunity to specialize in any of the 3 tracks: Bioinformatics, Biotechnology or Artificial Intelligence.


Graduates may retool towards data-analytics or technology-oriented roles in their home companies or pursue further specialization and training in academia. These skillsets are not relevant to merely biomedical research and healthcare, and are highly sought after in other sectors such as banking and finance, energy, government, transport, etc. Experienced graduates may eventually move into strategic planning and decision-making roles using data-centric approaches.

In addition, we will also facilitate project placements in industry and government sectors. Tie-ups with data science training and placement companies e.g. UpLevel, will help you ensure that you get the best possible exposure and training opportunities.
