Master of Science (MSc) in Life Science Engineering and Informatics (the programme takes place in China)
The Master of Science (MSc) programme in Life Science Engineering and Informatics incorporates significant interdisciplinary content with a substantial contribution from Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, analytical biochemistry and computer science/IT.
The programme deals with the so-called omics disciplines, which encompass several different areas such as proteomics, transcriptomics, lipidomics and metabolomics. For instance, proteomics concerns the study of (potentially) all expressed proteins in a given biological system.
The study of omics concerns research in the post-genomic area of bioscience where data from public available databases are crucial in the design of experiments and the interpretation of the attained data. It builds on holistic research methods which combine the hypothesis-based approach with the data- and technology-based approach.
The programme takes place in China, is offered in English and yields a double degree from The Technical University of Denmark and the Chinese university University of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The programme is offered in close collaboration between University of Aarhus, Technical University of Denmark, University of Copenhagen, University of Southern Denmark, CAS (Chinese Academy of Sciences) and UCAS (University of Chinese Academy of Sciences) as part of the transnational cooperation between China and Denmark, Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research (SDC).
