Target audience: This MSc programme is aimed at students with a first degree in physics, mathematics, computer science, bioinformatics, engineering or a related field who have a strong interest in biomedical and neural science and technical applications. Profound knowledge in maths (linear algebra, analysis), statistics, elementary probability theory, and programming skills in at least one language are compulsory.

Applicants must provide proof of their English skills. (TOEFL, IELTS,…)


Special features

The Graduate School of Neural Information Processing provides a research-oriented training. The curriculum includes two internships of 7 and 9 weeks, where students have the opportunity to get in contact with the research groups at the BCCN Tübingen, the MPI for Biological Cybernetics, the MPI for intelligent Systems, the Natural and Medical Science Institute (NMI), the Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN), the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research and the University of Tübingen (Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Science).

Scholarships are available for excellent international students.

Professional fields

The graduate program of Neural Information Processing offers a unique curriculum and exciting research opportunities for graduate students who wish to pursue careers in neuroscience in science and academia. The integrated curriculum offered in this program will give students a broad expertise that is not easily achievable in any individual department.

PhD options

After the masters program students have the opportunity to continue directly with their doctoral thesis and enter the doctoral Program for neural Information Processing.
