About the Program

M. Sc. Ecology with specialization in Ecological Informatics is a two-year full-time program that teaches Ecology in tandem with technology. Today's ecological problems —climate change, water challenges, human health, forest and wildlife conservation — are increasingly complex and call for real-time analysis of vast amounts of data. Specialization
in ecological informatics can help address these challenges by mastering the methods and developing the tools needed to translate complex data into usable information.

The program adopts a credit system. Students earn their degree by completing 100 credit points, split among course work, seminars, and a thesis.

Program Outcome
Upon successful completion, the students will develop a holistic understanding of the relevant concepts in ecological sciences, identify appropriate computational methods, and use computational tools to analyze and understand critical theoretical, methodological, and practical issues that underpin the flow of information within the biosphere. Students will develop analytical, decision-making, and data modeling skills critical for the job market and for pursuing ongoing research to solve complex problems.
