Why study the Master's Degree in Computational Methods in Science?
What will you learn?
- You will be introduced to the science of experimental data processing and analysis.
- As graduate in STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) you will appreciate the power of quantitative methods and know how to use them at discipline. Programming languages facilitate the task of acquiring, organising, sorting, filtering, processing, refining, representing, and finally explaining scientific data obtained in experimental disciplines.
- Special attention will be paid to computer data processing and analysis, and to the handling of the most commonly used software packages.
- The Master will be organised around the experimental Final Master's Th esis (TFM) on a specific research project, proposed by a topic department . The courses taught will be eminently methodological in nature, on procedures, algorithms and analysis, of a formal nature, sufficiently general for you to apply them under the guidance of tutor in your chosen work.
- There is an optional module containing courses on more specific techniques or procedures in disciplines such as Bioinformatics, Physics and Applied Mathematics, Biology and the Environment or Chemistry.
You will be able to work in...
The Master's degree will provide you with training that will enable you, as an experimental scientist:
- Carry out basic data processing autonomously.
- Interact with specialists (engineers, programmers) and speak their language.
- Start a career in fields such as bioinformatics, machine learning or big data.
