Master of Molecular Imaging Technology
Become an international leader in molecular imaging and contribute to the advancement of biomedicines.
Taught by molecular imaging experts supported by state-of-the-art facilities, the Master of Molecular Imaging Technology aims at developing international leaders in this exciting field.
The unique 1.5 year program has been designed for graduates with a background in chemistry, biology, physics, computer science, engineering, radiography and nuclear medicine technology who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge of molecular imaging.
You'll cover all key aspects of the subject, including optical imaging, ultrasound photo-acoustic imaging, single photon emission tomography, positron emission tomography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and hybrid imaging technologies. You'll also learn about the latest molecular imaging probes, contrast agents and radio-pharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine, as well as the importance of quality control involved in clinical molecular imaging.
Importantly, you'll have the opportunity to undertake a semester-long molecular imaging research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor. Using previously acquired data in the areas of molecular imaging, you'll learn to organise, analyse and discuss information and draw defensible conclusions.
A two-week residential component at the start of the course adds to your research training, and further readies you for a challenging and rewarding career.
- Access the most comprehensive and advanced range of magnetic resonance instrumentation in the Southern Hemisphere.

Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria
At UQ, we use a 7 point grading scale, where a 4 is a pass and 7 is the highest grade. When assessing your qualifications, we will convert the grade you received in your previous studies to our grading scale. This sometimes involves recalculating your GPA.
Different institutions calculate GPAs with different methods. When calculating your GPA, we may exclude certain non-academic subjects and include all failing grades.
Our GPA equivalency guide can be used as a guide to help you find the minimum UQ GPA equivalencies for the country or region where you completed your bachelor's degree.
If your GPA doesn't meet the minimum requirement for the program you're interested in, you may receive an articulation offer, which could allow you to progress to the master's degree when you meet the GPA requirements.
To enrol in the program a person must hold a relevant bachelor degree in Economics or cognate discipline or equivalent as approved by the Executive Dean; and satisfy the Executive Dean that, based on the academic record, the person is suitably qualified for admission.
