Master programs provides the same title for the degree - the Master. Postgraduate studies such as Masters of Science are shortened MSc. The Master of Science in Management program or the Master of Science of Management education are postgraduate programs in common management. This means that students receive an academic education with depth of reflection and abstraction. Masters usually can be classified as Master of Science (MSc) or the popular Master of Arts (MA). The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.
Biology examines the activity of organisms in the areas of function, growth, and evolution, as well as how these factors affect where the organism lives. It can further study how individual organisms interact within their environment.
The program supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the global image of European higher education.
What can you use this qualification for?
Highly qualified graduates in the internationally operating area of animal breeding and genetics are needed. The program is highly relevant for students who wish to work in organizations focused in the field of sustainable animal breeding.
What will you learn?

Understanding the human brain is one of the grand challenges of science and is important for basic science, health, and technology.
An interdisciplinary course that uniquely combines aspects of psychology, mathematics and computer science
Computational Neuroscience aims to better understand brain function, develop better analysis tools for neural data and inspire artificial intelligence algorithms
A number of developments make this course particularly relevant:
Recent successes in machine learning are based on analogies with animal brains, i.e. artificial neural networks; these successes have put the analysis of brain computation at the forefront once more
In particular study of the biological brain is being considered as a way to resolve some outstanding issues in AI, such as learning with a limited number of samples, generalisation, and the development of explainable AI
The study of the brain is currently undergoing a revolution as computational models are becoming powerful and accurate enough to complement experimental approaches
Revolutions in experimental recording methods necessitate the use of advanced analysis methods to deal with the enormous volume of data that these methods can produce
