Strong points


International Master’s degree

The master will be taught entirely in English. In this way, our graduates will be able to work into a global labor market and also it is promoted the attraction of international talent from abroad. 


The Master is focused on three key areas of expertise in bioinformatics: Genomics, Drug Design and High Performance Computing, areas in which the UAB has consolidated its expertise and leadership.

Highly qualified and multidisciplinary faculty

Students are taught by a team of leading academics and researchers from the UAB. In addition, students benefit from a programme of visiting lecturers with external professionals who are in constant contact with research industry and business.

The Masters aims to promote academic and professional guidance as a key element in the teaching-learning process. We advise our students from the registration and tuition until the delivery of their final master’s thesis. (Read more)
