Graduate Programme (By Coursework)


Icon for website.jpg

The Master of Science in Biomedical Data Science is the first graduate programme in the Asia-Pacific region offering data science training for specific application in the biomedical domain. The programme is a joint collaboration between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) Singapore.

The programme duration is one year (maximum two years) for full-time studies. Students enrolled for part-time studies may complete this over a period of two years (max four years). The curriculum is developed by current practitioners and informed by industry experts in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and tech sectors. Unlike other taught graduate programmes, the curriculum emphasizes on hands-on learning and practical skill acquisition. You will have the opportunity to specialize in any of the 3 tracks: Bioinformatics, Biotechnology or Artificial Intelligence.

c. Apply these skills meaningfully on real-world problems


Quotes from industry partners R1.jpg

Graduates may retool towards data-analytics or technology-oriented roles in their home companies or pursue further specialization and training in academia. These skillsets are not relevant to merely biomedical research and healthcare, and are highly sought after in other sectors such as banking and finance, energy, government, transport, etc. Experienced graduates may eventually move into strategic planning and decision-making roles using data-centric approaches.

In addition, we will also facilitate project placements in industry and government sectors. Tie-ups with data science training and placement companies e.g. UpLevel, will help you ensure that you get the best possible exposure and training opportunities.


For full time students, the minimum period of candidature is 1 year, and the maximum period of candidature is 2 years. For part time students, the minimum period of candidature is 2 years, and maximum period of candidature is 4 years.
