Description

Graduates in Computational biomedicine are able to understand and reflect on knowledge regarding the integration and application of computational methods in the life sciences, including molecular biology, structural biology, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics.

Career Opportunities  

Especially in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, the health-care sector and at universities, there is growing demand for graduates who are fully versed in the use of computers and special software in the biological and biomedical fields. 

In addition, graduates' skills within the modelling of complex dynamic systems and their knowledge of statistical methods also provides career opportunities in consultancies, patent agencies and in some cases also in the banking sector.
  If you want to work in research, a master’s from the University of Southern Denmark is an advantageous foundation to a PhD.

About the Degree

Computational Biomedicine focuses on the application and development of computational biology and bioinformatics methods for the analysis of next-generation molecular data sets gathered on an ever increasing scale in hospitals all around the world.

This programme will provide you with the skills necessary to drive this exciting future market as a biomedical data analyst and/or developer of innovative biomedical computer science solutions. This will allow you to contribute in shaping the future of computer assisted modern medicine.
During the first year, you will combine required and elective courses with a research profile in either Systems Biology or Bioinformatics. The former focuses on large-scale omics data sets, biological networks and advanced modelling, whereas the latter focuses on sequence analysis, structure and function studies of biomolecules, translational medicine and epidemiology.

The required courses take conversion classes in biology, mathematics and programming as their starting points. You must select two of the three conversion classes, depending on your qualifying bachelor’s  degree.


The second year is devoted to full-time research with a thesis preparation project (30 ECTS) and the thesis itself (30 ECTS).

Admission  

To be admitted to this programme, you must hold a bachelor's degree in natural sciences or another relevant degree based on at least three years of higher education after the high school level.

Students will be qualified for admission after an individual assessment by the Study Board.

In addition, documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level.
