The Computational Biology undergraduate major, offered jointly between the Departments of Biological Sciences (Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences) and Computer Science (School of Computing and Information), will prepare students to understand core principles, models, and theories in the fields of biology and computer science and use them strategically to solve key problems in computational biology. Graduates will have the skills and knowledge to pursue careers in industry or graduate studies.
The joint CMU-Pitt Ph.D. Program in Computational Biology (CPCB) provides interdisciplinary training in using quantitative and computational approaches to tackle scientific questions that lie at the interface of the life, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. CPCB trainees are taught and mentored by leading experts at two of the foremost computer science and biomedical research institutions in the world.
