Bioengineering and bioinformatics

Specialty "Bioengineering and bioinformatics"
Specialty program "Bioengineering and bioinformatics" is the main program in the sphere of synthetic and engineering biology and bioinformatics. This program helps students to develop deep knowledge in different spheres, such as Computational Biology, Genetic engineering, Protein engineering and Cellular engineering. Students start to work on projects and research in scientific labs in SLS. In addition to the main course students are welcome to take a large number of additional courses that will be helpful in their future career.
The structure and features of the program
The program consists of obligatory modules and modules which are chosen by them. Bioengineering and bioinformatics is one of the engineering programs. That's why we formulate certain requirements to the level of mathematical preparation. Students have to know several programming languages and principles of machine working. Students have an opportunity to change the educational direction twice. Firstly, students are offered to choose one of three tracks. Students have an opportunity to get a passport of competences in addition to the basic diploma. An example of the academic plan is presented here. Students who study in this program have the opportunity to have a free education in one of the leading EU universities. It is possible to have an individual educational trajectory and students can choose one or another specialization.

This type of education includes a classical lecture-seminar system and project works, online courses, discussion clubs and laboratory work.
