Masters in: Computational Ecology and Evolution or Bioinformatics???Watch
I am currently in my last year of Biological Sciences Undergraduate degree. A degree with elective modules tailored to ecology and also a choice of molecular options.
As I red from many students and their statements in the forum, the rewarding experience from research is amazing, although it does not offer great job security.
In preparation for next year, I am looking at Masters in Bioinformatics from Queen Mary UL, which I see as a more broader subject that can give a great variety of tools, but also looking at Computational Methods in Ecology and Evolution at Imperial College, which seems to follow topics that I am passionate about, such as community ecology and ecosystems ecology.
Being both courses very similar in structure, would like to ask to students and experts in the field what they think of the module plans of these both masters? And in a job-wise perspective, which one is believed to be more beneficial? Would Computational Methods be disadvantageous for any reason?
I paste the module options below for both Courses:
- Msc Bioinformatics at QMUL
- Msc Computational Methods in Ecology and Evolution
Need more help on going postgrad?
