Bachelor of Advanced Science

University of Technology Sydney

The Bachelor of Advanced Science is designed specifically to develop student learning using an inquiry-oriented and research-immersion model. Students engage in a number of research project subjects based on their chosen major, which include advanced materials and data science; environmental biotechnology; infection and immunity; and pre-medicine. Students are placed with world-leading research scientists and learn 'on the job', actively mentored in research teams learning theory through real-time application and solving real-world problems. More than just a work placement, this course is a holistic learning experience designed to train the next generation of scientists. Career options include positions in biotechnology, medicine, pharmaceuticals, vaccines, patent law and public health for the infection and immunity major. The pre-medicine major prepares students for postgraduate medicine, pharmacy, physiotherapy, health policy writing, health and medical writing, sales and technical support of medical devices, and the pharmaceutical and therapeutic goods industry. Study of advanced materials can lead to more traditional science-based research and development in government, defence and commercial laboratories; and financial modelling, management and other non-technical fields. Examples of positions in environmental biotechnology include industrial biotechnology for the energy sector (biofuel), agricultural sector (feedstock) and environmental management (phyto-remediation).
