Description and characteristics

The Master’s degree in Biostatistics aims to train experts in statistical modelling, under the different frequentist and Bayesian perspectives, who are able to carry out design research, data processing, analysis and derivation of the corresponding reports of interests in different fields related to statistical analysis techniques such as epidemiology, clinical and pharmaceutical research and research in Environmental and Natural Systems.

The Master’s degree in Biostatistics intends to train these professionals, from areas as diverse as Medicine, Biology, Pharmacy, Environment, Agricultural Engineering and, of course, Mathematics and Statistics. People who complete the Master’s degree in Biostatistics will become professionals with a clear specialisation in the statistical treatment of problems in any of the areas of Epidemiology, clinical and pharmaceutical research and research in Environmental and Natural Systems.

Clinical and pharmaceutical laboratories, environmental consulting companies, health and epidemiology services, research centres, etc. are showing a clear interest in integrating into their team professionals prepared for the treatment and analysis of the dense information available.

The Master’s degree in Biostatistics is a natural continuation of the professional specialisation and training of researchers in three very specific areas such as epidemiology, clinical and pharmaceutical research and environmental research. Due to the rapid pace of research, these areas need professionals that not only have the knowledge and skills of the discipline, but that have also received additional training related to Statistical Modelling and sophisticated Prediction Techniques. These knowledge and skills are essential to ensure the rigorous and valid planning of their experiments and research, as well as the helpful treatment of the information gathered.
