Master studies

CUBE contributes to multiple master programs in biology and computational science. We are engaged in designing the upcoming Master Bioinformatics at our university.

We recommend the master programs "Computational Science" and "Microbial Ecology" particularly for students who are interested in doing their master thesis at CUBE.

Master Bioinformatics

The master program in bioinformatics is open to students having a bachelor degree in life science, mathematics or computer science.

In the first semester the students acquire the background in the relevant fields outside their degree: biology, mathematics, computer science.

In the second and third semester the students specialize in bioinformatics.

In the fourth semester the students work on their master thesis.

Master program Computational Science

This program trains students in the MIN-fields (mathematics, Informatics, astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics) to become experts in the computer-aided aspects of the natural sciences.

Core program: computational concepts in natural sciences, mathematics, computer science.

Shell program: focus on computer aspects of one scientific field.

A bachelor in biology and a master in computational science are an ideal training for bioinformatic experts in universities, research facilities, private enterprise and public service.

Master program Molecular Microbiology, Microbial Ecology, Immunobiology

A dedicated module for Microbial Ecology within the Master Curriculum Molecular Microbiology, Microbial Ecology, and Immunobiology offers top-level research and training at the interface between Microbiology, Ecology, Biogeochemistry, Immunobiology, Molecular Biology & Evolution

Microorganisms are essential to the well-being of animals and humans and are the keepers of Earth‘s ecosystems. Understanding of the chemical and molecular interactions between microorganisms, viruses, symbiotic hosts, and the environment requires holistic approaches and collaboration across different scientific disciplines.

  • Students are trained in interdisciplinary sciences such as microbial ecology, symbiosis research, immunobiology, molecular biology, phylogeny and evolution, functional genomics and genetics, and bioinformatics.
  • They interact with internationally renowned researchers, and acquire extensive practical experience through courses in top-class laboratories with high-end instrumentation.
  • Graduates will have excellent Career Opportunities in Academic Research & Education, Molecular Diagnostics, Clinical & Environmental Consulting and Management, and the Biomedical/Biotech/Pharmaceutical Industry.
