The rapid advances in the fields of Data Science, Machine learning, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and their widespread use in the Life Sciences (biology, biotechnology, medicine) create new challenges but also exciting new career opportunities for young, dynamic university graduates with different backgrounds (computer scientists, engineers, biologists, biotechnologists, medical doctors etc) who are eager to deepen their understanding in these important and fast developing fields heavily depending on advanced Information Technology skills.

The Postgraduate Program „Data Science and Information Technologies (DSIT)“ is by its very nature intensely interdisciplinary. Its objective is to deepen the knowledge and strengthen the skills of its students with an emphasis in Data Science, Big Data, AI, applied mathematics, statistical methods, as well as their application in Bioinformatics, Biomedical Data Science, and the Life Sciences in general. The program focuses on subjects related to the management, processing, analysis, and software for massive or complex data, on which machine learning and AI can be based, as well as on the development of mathematical models, algorithms, statistical analysis, image analysis methods, and tools for bioinformatics, computational and systems biology, in the era of heterogeneous -omics big data aiming to improve human health.
