Computational Biology Certificate of Achievement
Effective Fall 2019
Computational Biology uses data analysis, mathematical modeling, and computational simulation techniques to understand complex biological systems. The Computational Biology certificate provides coursework designed to train students entering careers that require the interpretation and analysis of large amounts of biological data. The objective of the certificate is to acquire skills in computer science, biology and statistics that can be applied to bioinformatics. Students may also wish to obtain the Associate of Arts in Computational Biology degree, which can be used to transfer to a university for a BA/ BS degree in Computational Biology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, or related field.
Career opportunities for students with a Certificate of Achievement in Computational Biology may include employment with pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, academic research and scientific software companies.
