Yes, the program is designed for both, baccalaureate students who just finished school and those who have been working for a while and are interested in learning the latest technologies in software engineering, data science, machine learning and high-performance computing and how to apply them to molecular science.

Workforce readiness in the development and use of software and high end computing infrastructure is seen as a limiting factor in addressing what will certainly be even more complex grand challenge science problems as well as societal issues of the future. Standard MS degrees do not tackle these highly multidisciplinary and technological demands. There has … Continue Reading »

“The MSSE Professional Master’s degree is the first truly interdisciplinary Master’s program at UC Berkeley. It offers in-demand skills that allow its graduates to easily fit in a multidisciplinary team. Skills such as software engineering practices, leadership and management, molecular modeling and machine learning are not only taught by UC Berkeley professors and researchers but … Continue Reading »

The MSSE focuses on providing its students with specialized knowledge and the ability to apply such knowledge in the areas of software engineering, high-performance computing (HPC), molecular science, big data analytics, and entrepreneurship. The Department of Chemistry at UC Berkeley does not currently offer any combined BS/MS degree. The MSSE is the only master’s degree … Continue Reading »
