Duration

Students can complete the course in three years of full-time study. Full-time attendance involves approximately 24 hours each week on campus. Students may also be able to complete the course part time, usually at the rate of two subjects a session (a 50 per cent load), taking six years to complete. Part-time students are required to attend some classes in daytime hours.

The Bachelor of Science gives students a solid foundation in scientific knowledge and practice while allowing them to specialise in an area of interest. Students may follow any of the nine different majors leading to the award of a degree naming the chosen major, e.g. Bachelor of Science in Nanotechnology, or Bachelor of Science in Medical Science, or any of the majors available. Majors are chosen at the end of first year when students have experienced a range of disciplines and are more equipped to choose their preferred path. Students may also choose not to follow a major, but to select a range of second- and third-year subjects to tailor their study according to their interests and graduate with a cross-disciplinary degree.

The flexibility of this course allows students to either specialise in a specific professional area or to develop skills and knowledge in a range of scientific disciplines. All majors aim to produce professional scientists with a thorough grounding in theory and highly adaptable and practical scientific, experimental and computational skills relevant to the discipline chosen.

Graduates are highly versatile as they can work in almost any industry such as biotechnology, biomedical science, medical science, marine biology, environmental monitoring and management, mathematics, statistical modelling, applied chemistry, applied physics, nanotechnology and material science. Graduates could be employed to analyse traffic flow, calculate the optimum distribution of branches for major banks, set rates of insurance premiums, analyse the consumer demand for products, be part of a medical team working on groundbreaking research, determine the effectiveness of new drugs, evaluate the environmental impact of pollution or provide advice on the stock market.

YOUR NEW FUTURE PROOFED CAMPUS


The new UTS Science and Graduate School of Health Building is a space where you can learn, discover, innovate and collaborate.

The UTS Super Lab is a state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary lab. The first of its kind in Australia, it features full wireless connectivity that can accommodate over 200 students at any one time. Each work station is equipped with a touch-screen monitor, headset and microphone to enable many different disciplines to run concurrently. Students are exposed to different subjects that they may not take as part of their studies and this encourages collaboration and broader appreciation of different disciplines within science.

The UTS Crime Scene Simulation Lab is a custom-designed fully functional city apartment, a setting where common crimes occur. The lab is used to simulate crimes that forensic investigators often encounter and provide real practice-based training.

STUDY DRIVEN BY INNOVATORS


At UTS: Science, we’re proud of our team.

Meet Associate Professor Alison Beavis, Undergraduate Programs Director for the Faculty of Science and a Senior Lecturer in the School of Chemistry and Forensic Science.

Dr Beavis is an analytical chemist with research interests across areas such as the analysis of explosives, chemical warfare agents, firearms and illicit drugs using various analytical techniques.

She also maintains a strong interest in the area of trace element analysis in biological tissues, continuing on from the work completed during her PhD.

Associate Professor Beavis is just one of the many talented staff that call UTS: Science home.
