Master of Science
With the introduction of two interdisciplinary Master programs "Naturwissenschaftliche Informatik" (Computer Sciences for the Natural Sciences) und "Angewandte Bioinformatik" (Applied Bioinformatics), the Institute of Computer Science wants to enable their students, as well as graduates of other universities, to make a seamless transfer from a Bachelor Degree to a Master program. Both programs are unique. The attractive combination of the interdisciplinary content is based on the close cooperation between the natural scientific disciplines and on good networking with the life sciences of the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität. The aim of the Master program is to prepare students for highly qualified jobs in industry and research. Both Master programs start this winter semester. The application deadline is July 15, 2012.
The admission requirement for the Master program “Naturwissenschaftliche Informatik” is a Bachelor of Science degree in either computer science, mathematics, or physics. The aim of the Master program is to prepare students for highly qualified jobs in industry and research. In addition to computer science students can choose between biology, mathematics and physics as a main subject.
The Master program “Angewandte Bioinformatik” addresses graduates with a bachelor degree in one of the life sciences. The aim of the Master program “Angewandte Bioinformatik” is to enable students to successfully apply bioinformatic methods in sciences and industry alike. Students become familiar with the current bioinformatic research and its applications. The focus lies in the application of methods rather than in the development of methods and as such has great relevance to life sciences.
