Due to my engineering background, I wanted a course in neuroscience that was approachable from an engineers standpoint. The Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience course has every aspect of neuroscience that I am interested, from the biological side to imaging or simulation.
I'm gaining an insight into the cutting edge of neuroscience today and I know this training could lead me into a large variety of areas in research and industry.
MSc Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience
What I like the most about the course is that it is unique. It attracts people from many different fields and it's exciting to work with people that have such a diverse range of backgrounds, from neuroscience to psychology, physics or engineering - it's great to be able to draw on each others strengths.
The course doesn't focus on a single area of neuroscience but rather a whole spectrum of approaches used to an answer fundamental questions of how the brain works.
Once I complete the course I hope to go on to study a PhD in brain computer interfaces and it's the Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience programme that has laid the ground-work for me to pursue a research-focussed career. I'm gaining an insight into the cutting edge of neuroscience today and I know this training could lead me into a large variety of areas in research and industry.
