NeuroData Joint Master's Degree
In today’s modern world, everything is connected. The demand for combined brain and data expertise in neurotech, technological innovation, healthcare, education, and many other fields is rising fast.
Progress in neuroscience requires analysing vast amounts of data, a skill that would be invaluable to neuroscientists. Simultaneously, data scientists could benefit dramatically from specialised training in neuroscience to gain perspective that influences the quality and depth of their insights. Combining two such innovative fields of study will boost the careers of those who choose this path.
The NeuroData Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Brain and Data Science brings neuroscientists and data scientists together in an innovative, specialised programme that will cultivate a new generation of multidisciplinary researchers with in-depth knowledge in both fields, researchers who are highly skilled in investigating the most complex problems faced by the human race – the human mind and brain in health and disease. All students spend the first year at Bar-Ilan University (BIU) gaining a solid basis in neuroscience and neuroscience-orientated data science. The second-year of the programme takes place in one of the neuroscience and data science sub-tracks at one of the consortium’s partner institutions where the students also complete a research thesis.
The NeuroData Master is a collaboration between six leading universities in Israel and Europe: Bar-Ilan University in Israel, Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, in Portugal, University of Jyväskylä in Finland, University of Padua (Padova) in Italy, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in The Netherlands, and University of Zagreb in Croatia.
Graduates of this specialised joint master's degree programme will receive a double master’s degree from two of the partner universities, depending on the choice of study track.
