This Master programme enables students to acquire deeper knowledge in biosciences taking into account new computational and high-throughput experimental technologies. This involves the handling of large amounts of data and thus bioinformatics and network analysis are essential elements in this modern education in biosciences.
What is Systems Biology?
Systems Biology (an extension of Biochemistry and Physiology) wants to understand and model systems: individual cells, organs and whole organisms on the basis of their constituting molecules. It integrates established disciplines in Biosciences and renovates them for the challenges of the future.
Aims of the programme
The Master of Systems Biology combines theoretical and practical education: at least 1,450 hours of practical work in computer labs and wet labs within the University’s Life Sciences Research Unit or in partner institutions (Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), the Luxembourg Institute of Science & Technology (LIST), and the IGBMC in Strasbourg). At the end of the programme, students will be able:...

The master’s programme zoology aims at students interested in modern research regarding animal life forms. It conveys an organism-oriented approach as well as the practical application of innovative research methods for analysing the behaviour, body structure, function, development and evolution of animal life forms.
The master’s programme Zoology was introduced in winter semester 2007. The main admission requirement is the completion of a bachelor’s degree or equivalent degree in a closely related discipline at a university or institution of postsecondary education in Austria or abroad.
Based on two compulsory modules, the elective modules allow a specialisation in various directions and methods of zoological research. One main aspect of the programme is the practical scientific training in special courses, seminars and field trips, all of which prepare the student for writing the master's thesis. Scientific methods and techniques (such as confocal microscopy, 3D reconstruction, electron microscopy, and methods used molecular biology), which are the core competencies for professional work inside and outside the university sector, are conveyed in small groups of students....

About the Program
The Master of Science in Biological Sciences program is designed to prepare students for many types of biological work that require advanced training beyond the bachelor's degree, including careers in industry and/or civil service, teaching biological sciences at the elementary, secondary, and community college levels, independent research in the field of specialization, or continued graduate work at other institutions. A research thesis is required.
The Biological Sciences Department at Cal Poly takes Learn by Doing seriously. Over three-fourths of our courses include a lab section. That means our students spend most of their time out in the field collecting data or in the lab running experiments on modern equipment – not sitting at desks....

Students participate in intensive advanced and high-level courses in the different fields of biology, which are the most relevant for their specialization, to make them informed about the recent developments and frontline problems. Some 60 % of the time is practical hours (spent on laboratory/field practice and on research) ensuring knowledge of state of the art methods. The curriculum is assembled from intensive advanced level courses on the theoretical aspects of selected disciplines and special seminar series on problems in a narrower field of science. The program also involves practical courses and a supervised research activity, which is needed for the preparation of the “M.Sc. Thesis”. In the first two semesters emphasis is on theory and basic laboratory or field practice. The third and the fourth semesters are devoted to research and preparation of a thesis. The training medium is English so students can gain a better command of academic English in different fields of biology....
