MSc NFQ: Level 9

Biology - Bioinformatics with Computational Biology

The MSc in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at UCC is a one-year full-time (or two years part-time) taught masters course commencing in September. Bioinformatics is a fast-growing field at the intersection of biology, mathematics and computer science. It seeks to create, advance and apply computer/software-based solutions to solve formal and practical problems arising from the management and analysis of very large biological data sets. Applications include genome sequence analysis such as the human genome, the human microbiome, analysis of genetic variation within populations and analysis of gene expression patterns. Delivered by staff from across the Schools of Microbiology, Mathematics, Applied Mathematics & Statistics, Biochemistry & Cell Biology and the Department of Computer Science, the programme provides interdisciplinary research-led training in bioinformatics and systems biology. The MSc programme will train participants to an advanced level in bioinformatics theory and applications. Graduates of the programme will: have a solid background in the theory behind bioinformatics methods and tools so that they can critically evaluate research in bioinformatics be able to use existing bioinformatics methods and tools and rapidly learn to apply new methods and tools be able to organise, process and analyse large data sets generated by genomics and systems biology approaches be able to program and create scripts for parsing various formats of biological data within a command-line computer environment understand the role of modelling and simulation of biological systems have a deep knowledge of the aspect of bioinformatics in which they carried out their three-month research project (as part of the MSc programme). This experience will prepare them for a future research career in the bioinformatics field. View Course Details

Chemistry - Analysis of Pharmaceutical CompoundsCKR02 Full-time & Part-time

MSc NFQ: Level 9

Chemistry - Analysis of Pharmaceutical Compounds

MSc degree courses are provided in three key areas of Analytical Chemistry, Environmental Analytical Chemistry and in Pharmaceutical Analysis. They are designed to provide advanced knowledge and hands-on training in modern analytical instrumental techniques. Separation science, sensors, and spectroscopic techniques are key elements alongside chemometrics, instrumentation and advanced research project completion. Students will have the flexibility to specialise in a chosen field and further advancement to PhD research is available to highly motivated and talented postgraduates. The MSc in Analysis of Pharmaceutical Compounds is a one-year course designed to provide you with the theoretical and practical skills for employment in a diverse range of industries that require analytical expertise. The course curriculum consists of six months of lectures, laboratory practical sessions, career service workshops, industry-based seminars/workshops, site visits to industry and a six-month research project (industry, research institute, aboard). The curriculum has been developed with input from staff in the chemistry department and also by the industry advisory board, to provide you with the necessary skills required by employers. Students have the choice to complete the six-month research project in a national or international industry or university environment. They also have the opportunity to present their research at the annual George Guilbault Symposium that is sponsored by industry with a number of awards being presented to students at this event.
