Considering that a broad re-engineering effort is needed to catalyze the development of health science, the BioHealth Computing Consortium is linking together Public Universities, Bioindustry Parks and Private Companies, to speed laboratory discoveries into solutions for patients.
BioHealth Computing EM is a one year MSc programme, open to well motivated students who have completed one year MSc course (60 ECTS), or equivalent degree in the fields of: Clinical Research, Environmental and Animal Health, Molecular Biotechnology, and Computational Mathematics.
BioHealth Computing EM is organized in 2 semesters followed at two different Partner Universities, that will be both in charge of awarding credits (30:30 ECTS), and Ms degrees to the student.
Each year, the courses start by an Integration Period and finish by e Summer School gathering all the students in the BioPark of Archamps-Genève Technopole. During the first semester, students take Advanced Courses in scientific fields depending on their previous degree.
The second semester is dedicated to a nine months Joint Research Project, associating two students coming from two different scientific fields to solve a unique problem.
The BioHealth Computing EM academic program can be studied in any two of the institutions (one university per semester) indicated below:
Students applying for the BioHealth Computing Erasmus Mundus student scholarships must include up to one area of knowledge (specialization option).
In addition, students should also indicate which university they prefer, if any, for each semester of studies.
Priority will be given to applicants whose background and interest match closely with those of BioHealth Computing EM
Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available:
- 24,000 € for Non-European students
- 1,200 € per week for academics (maximum14,400 € for 3 months)
