The MSc in Biometry programme focuses on developing students’ readiness in solving problems of complex systems in science and biotechnology by means of computational modelling, analysis and simulations.
Furthermore, they learn to develop novel, robust computational procedures to be utilized effectively in different settings.
Scientific interdisciplinary problem-solving will be emphasized, through a Master Project that may be done internally or with the industry.
This programme will prepare the intended postgraduate to be a highly versatile person who can operate beyond the traditional boundaries of separate disciplines.
Graduates will be prepared for positions in scientific research, for MPhil/PhD programmes, national and international alike, and positions in the Biotechnology industry, Agriculture and Agro-Industry, Medical and paramedical, Environmental sciences and related fields
