Postgraduate 2nd degree study programme Bioinformatics

(Interdisciplinary program)

Bioinformatika (II. st.)

 

Duration of study: 2 years (120 ECTS)

Title awarded at the end of the programme Magister bioinformatike, magistrica bioinformatike (Abbrev: mag. bioinf.)


The Postgraduate (2nd cycle) Study Programme Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary study programme jointly organised by the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor.
 

Short description

The basic aims of the programme comply with the goals of postgraduate study as stipulated by the law. The programme consists of research- and profession-related topics including computer science, genomics and biomedicine, and is comparable with similar internationally recognized programmes abroad. 
The aim of program is to enable students to acquire and further develop the interdisciplinary knowledge in the above areas:

  • by studying theoretical and methodological concepts.
  • by training for the transfer and application of the theoretical knowledge in practice, and
  • by learning to solve profession- and work-related and other problems, in particular by searching for new sources of knowledge and by applying scientific methods, to develop the ability to communicate within and among professions, professional and scientific criticism and responsibility, initiative and independence in decision-making and managing highly demanding tasks.

| The study programme is accredited until 15. 10. 2021 |
