Bachelor of Science (Hons.) in Computational Biology

University/Institute: National University of Singapore (NUS)
Location: Singapore - Singapore
Focus: Computational Biology
Recommended Undergraduate Degrees: None
Degree Offered: BS/BSc/BA/B.Eng (4 years)BS/BSc/BA/B.Eng (Major/Primary Degree)

Key characteristics of program:

A four hear undergraduate honours degree program offered by the Faculty of Science, with a B.Sc (Hons.) in Computational Biology. The program combines foundational coursework in life sciences, computer science, and mathematics and statistics with advanced coursework and research opportunities in computational biology and bioinformatics.

The number of graduates is less than the number of incoming students because of recent growth in the program.

Program Goals:

This programme aims to provide a multidisciplinary education that would produce graduates who would be equally at ease with algorithm design, mathematical and statistical analysis as they would be with biochemistry, biology/genetics, and related areas of biology. Graduates from the programme will be equipped for a career in the fast-paced pharmaceutical, biomedical or biotechnology industries. They could also pursue graduate studies in bioinformatics or computational biology
