Bachelor of Advanced Science - (C10347)

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.
- Advanced Materials and Data Science major : Modern civilisation depends upon natural and fabricated materials such as metals, textiles and materials for electronic components and devices. The next generation of advanced materials is key to solving many of society's needs, such as clean energy from solar cells, water purification, and materials that support health and security technologies. This major covers the three skills and knowledge areas essential for participating in this important technology
space: the properties and development of materials; how to measure and test these properties using various experimental techniques; and how to design new materials using computer simulations. Data science is a new and exciting area of knowledge that is revolutionising materials science in how researchers conduct their work, and analyse the properties of materials and trends in their data to discover new materials and applications.
* Mid-year intake may be considered on a case-by-case basis
- Environmental Biotechnology major : Humans are in a constant battle with microbes, both medically and environmentally. This     major focuses on understanding how to manage microbes that impact upon the environments that we depend upon (including bioremediation, mine waste management), as well as using microbes to solve problems that can lead to commercial end products such as biofuels, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals or agricultural feedstocks. The diversity of microbes with novel traits is  immense; a new style of scientist with a specialist background is needed to bioprospect these habitats and identify which microbes can be used to solve environmental challenges. This major focuses on industrial applications of environmental biotechnology. Students develop advanced skills in bioinfomatics, microbial ecology, as well as the fundamental sciences to prepare them for an exciting career in the ever expanding field of biotechnology, having a specific focus on environmental applications and solutions to the changing globe.
* Mid-year intake may be considered on a case-by-case basis
- Infection and Immunity major : Now and in the future, one of the biggest global threats to human health and that of the                    environment is antibiotic resistance. That is, the resistance of micro-organisms to drugs that are used to treat serious infections, rendering these drugs ineffective. This major provides students with the skills and expertise to enable them to participate in the effort to address this urgent health problem. Students learn how micro-organisms cause infections, how the host prevents and responds to infection, and how to understand processes both in the microbe and the host that can be targeted in clinical  applications for the diagnosis, treatment and protection against microbial infection. Students gain advanced experimental, analytical and computational skills in areas such as drug discovery, development of vaccines, drug synthesis, human immunology and antibiotic resistance. Students explore innovative ways to tackle the antibiotic resistance problem.
* Mid-year intake may be considered on a case-by-case basis
- Pre-Medicine major : This major is distinguished by its strong focus on core topics where in the second and third years of study      have a stronger coursework focus. Students are introduced to practices and theory that underlie both medical research and the      health professions. The aim is to optimally prepare graduates for health professional careers.
