The Systems Biology Master’s program is developed in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine, Life Sciences Center and Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics. The interdisciplinary Master’s program prepares students to do real-world work in rapidly developing fields including, but not limited to, biological systems modelling, bioengineering, synthetic biology, bioinformatics, neurobiology, and data analysis. It is ideal for current and future biologists who wish to take advantage of the most powerful statistical models and programming tools to produce quantifiable results in their field of choice.

Why this programme?

  • An interdisciplinary program that prepares highly-qualified scientists for a professional career
  • Rewarding program structure introduces future life-scientists to powerful statistical models and information technologies
  • A forward-looking curriculum equips scientists for leadership in rapidly emerging fields
  • Leading faculties - courses are taught by faculty members with a breadth and depth of expertise and experience in private and public institutions.

What's after?

  • Systems Biology programme’s graduates can find a job position in both public (universities, health care institutions, research institutes) and private (biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies) sectors.
  • The specialists can also be attractive in valleys where science, studies and business are integrated.
  • Students may continue their career in PhD studies as well.
