What is Bioinformatics Engineering?
Bioinformatics Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that links engineering to the analysis of living organisms. Engineers in this field develop technologies and software that are used to analyse and interpret biological data.
These engineers must have a good understanding of computing and the life sciences in order to gather, process, and analyse vast amounts of data. Bioinformatics Engineers may be employed in research areas such as the pharmaceutical industry, medical technology, biotechnology, computational biology, proteomics, computer information science, and medical informatics.
Bioinformatics Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
