WHAT'S COMPUTATIONAL & SYSTEMS BIOLOGY (C&SB)?

 

The Major is designed primarily for highly motivated students interested in interdisciplinary activities in life sciences, behavioral sciences, and the computational, control, communication and information branches of engineering and computer sciences. Primary emphasis is on integrative computational and systems biology studies. Students have several options for in-depth studies: a coherent integration of courses selected from one of five designated concentrations in Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, Neurosystems, Biomedical Systems or Computers & Biosystems; or from the broader concentration areas of life sciences, behavioral sciences, engineering and applied mathematical sciences, from these areas.

 

WHAT CAN I DO WITH A DEGREE IN COMPUTATIONAL & SYSTEMS BIOLOGY?

 

The Major is appropriate preparation for employment or for graduate studies in any of the concentration areas, with emphasis on interdisciplinary activities. It is especially geared toward interdisciplinary computational, biosystems/systems biology training of research-oriented students, preparing them for graduate/postgraduate studies and research. It is also appropriate preparation for professional school studies in medicine, public health, dentistry, business, engineering and law.
