MSc Computational Intelligence and Computational Biology
Our cross-disciplinary postgraduate programme provides academic training within research areas of computational intelligence, computational biology and computational and cognitive neurosciences. This training will foster students’ interest in and develop fundamental and up-to-date knowledge for performing research in the interdisciplinary area. This programme also provides students with hands-on technical skills that are needed for finding employment opportunities in industry and research institutes involved in research and development in intelligent optimisation and control, bioinformatics, brain research and computational biology.
Candidates should have a first degree in computer science, mathematics, electrical engineering or physics. Students from neuroscience, bioscience and other related disciplines having an adequate mathematical and computing background are also encouraged to apply. Candidates should have obtained the degree at Upper Second level or higher. In exceptional circumstances, relevant work experience may also be considered if the candidate has achieved less than Upper Second.
