Overview

Our degree will give you the knowledge of human and medical biology with an understanding of the mathematical and computational approaches used to analyse the volume of personal health information captured in our digital world.

As a student on the Biomedicine Data Science degree you will benefit from the new £12.5 million Innovation for Health building at the University of Surrey.

As technologies have advanced within the Biosciences, the generation of large data sets (“Big Data”) has brought new challenges in data processing and analysis; in the field of health care, ever-more comprehensive data is being collated from patients, both as individuals and as whole cohorts. Our Biomedicine with Data Science degree will produce graduates with the unique set of knowledge and skills to capitalise on the advances already being made in data generation and collection, and will give them a competitive edge in this emerging jobs market.

The degree is part of Surrey’s pioneering Innovation for Health programme, designed to bring together computer, data and health scientists to meet the challenges of an ageing population and changing patterns of disease, developing technologies that will facilitate improvements in healthcare.

The structure of our programmes follows clear educational aims that are tailored to each programme. These are all outlined in the programme specification documents which include further details such as the learning outcomes. Please be aware that these specifications are applicable to the current academic year.

Career opportunities

As technologies have advanced within biosciences, the generation of large data sets (Big Data) across many disciplines has brought new challenges in terms of data processing and analysis, and the generation of realistic computational models to address complex biological and medical questions.

In the field of healthcare, ever more comprehensive data is being collated from patients, both as individuals and as whole cohorts.

A new breed of medical bioscientist, who can bring together knowledge of human and medical biology with an understanding of the mathematical and computational approaches used to analyse such data, is required in order to capitalise on the advances already being made in data generation and collection.

Our Biomedicine with Data Science programme will provide students with this unique set of knowledge and skills, and will give them a competitive edge in this newly emerging job market.
