Graduates will be able to offer advanced computing solutions to solve complex biological problems. This unique combination of skills will increase employability and advance biological sciences in the next decade and beyond.
No background knowledge or experience in Computer Science is required. MSc in Computational Biology students will undertake a series of modules designed to develop these skills from scratch, as well as taking advanced modules in biological sciences that complement the computer science components.
The MSc in Computational Biology at Munster Technological University will be delivered part-time and online using Munster Technological University’s (MTU) state of the art e-learning platform. These models will allow students to work fulltime, while studying part-time.
The programme will be particularly attractive to those already in fulltime employment, wishing to upskill, and to international students for whom the financial (e.g., travel and accommodation) and administrative (e.g., visa authorisation) hurdles of pursuing an MSc are removed. Those who wish to take the programme who are not in employment or whose workplace is not suitable for providing a work-based project will be provided with a project from the Department of Biological Sciences.
Graduates from the MSc in Computational Biology will possess high-level knowledge in biological science and computational skills which can be applied to the analysis, interpretation, and visualisation of large biological datasets.
