Since the structure of DNA was discovered over half a century ago, the amount of data gathered by biotech researchers has grown exponentially. Software has now become one of the main tools used by biologists to make sense of genomics and related data. CIT's MSc in Computational Biology provides graduates with the interdisciplinary skills needed by research institutes and industry to conduct this research.
This MSc Computational Biology at Cork Institute of Technology builds on the recognised international research record of CITs biotech researchers. The course runs over three semesters and includes a choice of modules and an industry related research project or placement. Entry requirements include an honours degree in Biological Sciences, Computing or a related discipline.
The course is designed to offer Bioscience and Computer Science graduates the opportunity to develop their knowledge of computing technologies, computational biology and statistics and apply this to the solution of life science problems.
