Combine CS with Other Interests?

  1. Jul 2, 2012 #1
    What masters programs allow the integration of CS and life sciences?

    I was advised by a software engineer at my internship that I should do more than just study computer science. I really like programming, and I want to learn more about how computers work, but I also have a strong interest in other sciences, namely chemistry and physics. The software engineer advised that I look into biotech since it is a booming industry that will be a good source of jobs for decades to come in the US. This sounds good to me, because I like using computers to solve problems but I want those problems to be interesting.

    Learn some bio-informatics. It's a huge field. Basically about applying datamining techniques to the human genome.
