Programme Overview

The Master of Science in Biomedical Data Science is the first graduate programme in the Asia-Pacific region offering data science training for specific application in the biomedical domain. The programme is a joint collaboration between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) Singapore.

The programme duration is one year (maximum two years) for full-time studies. Students enrolled for part-time studies may complete this over a period of two years (max four years). The curriculum is developed by current practitioners with direct input from industry experts in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and tech sectors. Unlike other taught graduate programmes, the curriculum emphasizes on hands-on learning and practical skill acquisition. You will have the opportunity to specialize in any of the 3 tracks: Bioinformatics, Biotechnology or Artificial Intelligence.

Upon graduation, you will be able to

  1. Demonstrate an essential understanding of deep/machine learning for biomedical sciences
  2. Exhibit proficiency to develop and programme with focus on data analysis and visualization
  3. Apply data science analytical skills on real-world problems

Graduates may retool towards data-analytics or technology-oriented roles in their home companies or pursue further specialization and training in academia. These skillsets are not relevant to merely biomedical research and healthcare, and are highly sought after in other sectors such as banking and finance, energy, government, transport, etc. Experienced graduates may eventually move into strategic planning and decision-making roles using data-centric approaches.

In addition, we will also facilitate project placements in industry and government sectors. Tie-ups with data science training and placement companies e.g. UpLevel, will help you ensure that you get the best possible exposure and training opportunities.


For full time students, the minimum period of candidature is 1 year, and the maximum period of candidature is 2 years. For part time students, the minimum period of candidature is 2 years, and maximum period of candidature is 4 years.
