The Department of Biology and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offer a joint Master of Engineering in Computer Science and Molecular Biology (Course 6-7P) that focuses on the emerging field of computational and molecular biology. The curriculum provides strong foundations in both biology and computer science and features innovative, integrative, capstone and elective subjects. The goal is to produce an entirely new cadre of graduates who are uniquely qualified to address the challenges and opportunities at the interface of computational and molecular biology.
The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Computer Science and Molecular Biology is a five-year degree program through which students normally receive the Master of Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Molecular Biology simultaneously. At the end of the junior year, students in the SB program with a strong academic record will be offered the opportunity to continue through the five-year MEng program.
Additional information about both the undergraduate and graduate programs is available in the Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Programs section.
