About

The master’s program in Bioinformatics is offered by the Technical University of Munich in partnership with Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich (LMU). The program offers great freedom in terms of individual specialization within the discipline.

Overview

We offer a master degree in Bioinformatics at Technical University of Munich. Bioinformatics is an up-and-coming academic subject and research area that combines modern information sciences (informatics, mathematics, and statistics) with the life sciences (biology, chemistry, pharmacy, medicine, biotechnology, and food technology).

Bioinformatics deals with questions of informatics that arise with the application of new technologies and a rapidly growing quantity of data in the life sciences. The discipline is also of continuously increasing significance in medicine and drug discovery.

Which professional opportunities can I take up with this qualification?

  • The successful completion of the Master of Science opens up many career options. You may enter, via a doctoral degree, into research. 
  • Or you work in a corporation. There, you develop bioinformatic applications and implement them. 
  • Thus, for example, you develop new medicines in pharmaceutical companies. Beyond which, corporate consultancy offers good career prospects. 

Programme Structure

  • The core of the degree consists of an interdisciplinary vocational education and training in biology, chemistry, informatics, and statistics.
  • In addition to the master’s internship, during the first three semesters, the central focus is on elective courses from all areas of study, which can be selected according to one’s own interests and specializations pursued. However, there is a clear emphasis throughout the degree on bioinformatics.
