The International Master Program Computational Neuroscience is interdisciplinary and strongly research oriented. Neuroscience is one of the most intensively developing and important sciences of the 21st century. Understanding the functioning of the brain requires the collaborative efforts of neurobiologists, neuropsychologists, cognitive scientists, medical researchers, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists and engineers. Students who have completed the Master Program will have the ability to communicate across these diverse disciplines which will help them to make their own contribution to the fast growing field of neuroscience.
Application deadline: March 15
Beginning of courses: Mid October
The International Master Program Computational Neuroscience was initiated by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin. The Master Program is hosted at Technische Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Students enrol at Technische Universität Berlin, there are no tuition fees. Language of instruction is English. The program currently offers 15 places with an excellent teacher to student ratio and a sense of familiarity among students. Upon completion of the program a Master of Science is jointly awarded by Technische Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
The International Master Program in Computational Neuroscience was accredited in 2010 by the ASIIN agency, initiallt until 30.09.2014. Since then the TU Berlin stopped the accreditation of individual programs and started impementing a university-wide accreditation procedure for all its courses, which is expected to cover the International Master Computational Neuroscience from January 2018.
