Overview UC Berkeleys Master of Molecular Science Engineering (MSSE) is an online professional masters program focused on teaching scientists to use computation and machine learning to solve real-world problems in the molecular sciences and beyond. The program is for students with backgrounds in chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, computer science, or from other physical science disciplines who want to learn computational science, data science, machine learning, and software engineering. The MSSEs curriculum teaches computational molecular science with a focus on advanced machine learning, complex mathematical modeling and simulations, software engineering, and high-performance computing. These skills are increasingly used across a wide range of science-based industries including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, material science, energy, and agriculture. In addition, the MSSE provides students with the leadership, management, and entrepreneurial skills needed to create or lead science- or engineering-based enterprises. The online degree program can be taken either full-time or part-time. Full-time students can finish the degree in 9 months, and part-time students can finish the degree in 2+ years.
