Chairperson Message

Welcome to the “Department of Bioinformatics” at Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET). We are an academic department that specializes in Bioinformatics. It is the common thread connecting health data science and biomedical research. The department was established in 2014. The undergraduate program is for four years.

Bioinformatics is a new fast-growing field today. It is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data. Bioinformatics combines biology, computer science, information engineering, mathematics, and statistics to analyze and interpret biological data. There are several applications of bioinformatics with special reference to Computational biology, biomedical sciences, drug design, and discovery and clinical studies. Job opportunities are available in research labs, hospitals, pharmaceutical industries, the IT sector, and forensic science.

The department will soon initiate MS and Ph.D. programs to conduct methodological research and the prevention and treatment of diseases.

Dr. Uzma Mehmood
