The world of molecular biology is evolving rapidly, mainly due to the increasing importance of Next-Generation Sequencing and big data, alongside traditional research methods.
The advanced bachelor’s degree in bioinformatics will arm students and laboratory scientists with the necessary IT and programming knowledge to be able to work with these changes and thus continue to work in a future-proof manner. In other words, this training will literally make you the laboratory scientist of the future.
As the program focuses on students and professionals who want to deepen their know-how as a laboratory scientist or other scientific researcher, two trajectories are possible. There is the day course, which takes one year to complete. But there is also the possibility of a two-year at-home program, which enables you to combine studying, work and family.
By offering the potential of distance learning and by organizing the course entirely in English, the course is also meant for international students - especially since they can take their exams remotely within the at-home program. This way, the advanced bachelor’s course gets a strong international reputation, with all the professional opportunities that it entails.
As a bioinformatician, you will have a wide range of applications in scientific research and you will constitute the perfect mix of IT expert and molecular biologist. Thus, the study program is explicitly dedicated to this, by focusing on programming, informatics, and bioinformatics.
