Course Summary

Overview

With the rise of big data analytics in the healthcare sector, there is an increasing demand for scientists with expertise in data mining and interpretation that can be used to inform clinical decisions. This master's course is designed to provide you with these skills, enhancing your career prospects as a computational neuroscientist, working in healthcare sector or in the field of medical research.

Why study MSc/PGDip Computational Neuroscience at Middlesex University?

This degree will give you a theoretical and practical understanding of computational neuroscience. You'll gain an advanced knowledge of neurones and their organisation into functional circuits that process information and control behaviour.

You'll develop your skills in recording, securely storing, analysing and visualising neural data to aid diagnosis and to determine the best treatment options or to answer a research question. Additionally, you'll gain hands-on experience in the use of programming methods used in computational neuroscience.

This master's course is ideal to those who want to analyse big data which informs clinical decisions or to investigate medical research questions.

Course highlights
