MS in Biomedical Data Science & Informatics

Biomedical data science and informatics is an interdisciplinary field that applies concepts and methods from computer science and other quantitative disciplines together with principles of information science to solve challenging problems in biology, medicine and public health.

The MS in Biomedical Data Science and Informatics prepares students to participate in research programs in academia, healthcare, public health and industry. Students enrolled in this unique interdisciplinary program will benefit from Clemson's strengths in computing, engineering, and public health and the expertise in biomedical sciences offered by our collaborators at the Medical University of South Carolina. The program seeks to produce the next generation of data scientists, prepared to manage and analyze big data sources and apply their knowledge in clinical, government and industry settings. Well qualified students will have an undergraduate or graduate degree in computer science, math, engineering or biomedical sciences.

The MS in BDSI offers combined BS/MS plans with BS Bioengineering, Mathematics, Computer Engineering, and Computer Science degrees. These plans allow Clemson undergraduates to apply up to twelve hours of graduate coursework towards both their BS and MS degrees. Students participating in this program must have at least 90 semester hours and a minimum GPA of 3.4. For questions about the BS-MS course plans, please contact Adam Rollins at
