In recent years, biological research has become increasingly interdisciplinary, focusing heavily on mathematical modeling and on the analysis of system-wide quantitative information. Sophisticated high-throughput techniques pose new challenges for data integration and data interpretation. The Computational Life Science (CompLife) MSc program at Jacobs University meets these challenges by covering computational, theoretical and mathematical approaches in biology and the life sciences. It is geared towards students of bioinformatics, computer science, physics, mathematics and related areas.
The CompLife program is located at Jacobs University, a private and international English-language academic institution in Bremen, Germany. CompLife students at Jacobs University take a tailor-made curriculum comprising lectures, seminars and laboratory trainings. Courses cover foundational as well as advanced topics and methods. Core components of the program and areas of specialization include:
- Computational Systems Biology
- Computational Physics and Biophysics
- RNA Biology
- Imaging and Modeling in Medicine
- Ecological Modeling
- Theoretical Biology
- Applied Mathematics
- Numerical Methods

Jacobs University’s green and tree-shaded campus provides much more than buildings for teaching and research. It is home to an intercultural community which is unprecedented in Europe. A Student Activities Center, various sports facilities, a music studio, a student-run café/bar, concert venues and our Interfaith House ensure that you will always have something interesting to do. In addition, Jacobs University offers accommodation for graduate students on or off campus.
Water management systems are fundamental to society. Through the supply of clean drinking water, the treatment of waste water, as well as flood and coastal protection, high-quality water management can have an enormous social and ecological impact. Significant resources are invested all over the globe to ensure that complex water systems meet the levels of service and performance required by increasing economic and environmental pressures, whilst minimizing financial and social costs. The constant development, operation and management of these systems requires highly trained experts with knowledge and practical skills that cover science, engineering and management disciplines.
