The CENTURI Master of Computational and Mathematical Biology (CMB) at Aix-Marseille University aims to teach the analysis and the modelling of complex biological systems.


This Master is structured around 3 different 2-year degrees: Statistics, Mathematical modeling and Bioinformatics. These 3 majors lead students to address the new challenges of complex biological systems.

While specialising on a major in their own field, students share courses and interdisciplinary projects. Independently from their major, every student will follow courses in Computer Science, Mathematics and Biology.

Part of the formation consists in gathering students from the different CMB majors to conduct interdisciplinary projects that will prepare them to research internships and professional career.

Computational and Mathematical Biology is an international MSc with a strong emphasis placed on students' future professional career. As such, lectures are taught in English which is the language most commonly used in research.


The CENTURI Master of Computational and Mathematical Biology leads to an Aix-Marseille University degree and prepares students for scientific research. With this Master’s degree, graduates will be qualified for international research institutes as a PhD student or a Research engineer in data analysis, biological systems modelling, analysis of interaction networks, etc.

Graduates also have the opportunity to join private companies’ R&D departments in health care, pharmacology, biosystems and more generally to work on big data issues.
