DescriptionIn our modern age of big data and data analytics, computer science is essential to unlocking the mysteries of human health and disease. Using the techniques and tools of high performance computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, computer scientists and programmers have a crucial role to play in the rapidly expanding field of biomedical and health informatics.

The BCompSc in Health and Life Sciences will place you at the rich intersection of computer science and biology, providing a solid foundation in computer science while giving you the additional knowledge and skills to pursue a career or further studies in the health and life sciences. Our state-of-the-art labs for high-performance computing, networks and artificial intelligence will give you experience with the equipment you’ll use in the field. You’ll also:
  • Develop algorithms for processing, visualizing and understanding biological and health data
  • Design software for the health and life sciences sector
  • Explore emerging software and hardware technologies in the context of health and life sciences
  • Learn about molecular and cell biology, genomics and biological data sciences

Students who are more interested in studying these issues with a foundation in biology may wish to consider the BSc in Systems and Information Biology.
