The Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry provides world class academic excellence across the chemical society by engaging students with faculty that will strive for the finest quality of service to provide cutting edge research. The program prepares the next generation of critical thinkers, scientists, and industry leaders. Students can pursue graduate work in chemistry or biochemistry; teaching positions in chemistry in secondary schools; employment with industry or government; entry into professional schools such as medicine or dentistry; or entry into law school with a view toward specialization in patent or environmental law. The department is certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
The Laboratory Medicine program at RMIT University is aligned with both Australian Institute of Medical Science (AIMS) and IBMS accreditation.RMIT is the only Victorian university to offer all of the following majors including haematology, transfusions and transplantation science, anatomical pathology, medical microbiology and clinical biochemistry.You’ll have flexibility in choosing your major disciplines and will also complete a major clinical placement, providing you with work-ready skills and practical experience.In your final year, you’ll have the opportunity to study a discipline-focused laboratory medicine project to develop your research skills. Graduates are qualified as medical scientists and play a vital role in the healthcare system.It's estimated that up to 70% of clinical decisions made by doctors are based on information provided by medical laboratory scientists.Laboratory medicine is the science of pathology - detecting and diagnosing disease. It involves analysing samples and conducting tests using body tissues (e.g. biopsies, pap smears) and fluids (e.g. blood, urine) to diagnose diseases and provide information about treatment or future prevention.Medical scientists perform diagnostic tests of biological samples and work with doctors to help them diagnose and enable treatment.As an RMIT graduate your skills will be in high demand and employment opportunities are excellent throughout urban and regional areas in Australia and overseas.In Australia, employment opportunities for medical laboratory scientists have grown significantly over recent years and are expected to continue growing.You may find employment in:Examples of major Victorian hospitals that employ laboratory medicine graduates are Monash Medical Centre, St Vincent's, Royal Melbourne, Royal Children's, the Alfred and Austin hospitals.
The Bachelor of Arts in Biology is designed to provide students with intensive, progressive and balanced learning experiences in cell and molecular biology, organismal biology, population and community biology, and environmental science. Students have opportunities to actively participate in research, present reports at scientific meetings, publish their findings, and in receive national recognition for the high quality of their work.
The Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry fulfills the need of those students who are pursuing pre-medical or pre-dental programs as well as those who plan to enter fields such as business, environmental or patent law, where a background in chemistry can be of great utility. The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry provides world class academic excellence across the chemical society by engaging students with faculty that will strive for the finest quality of service to provide cutting edge research. The program prepares the next generation of critical thinkers, scientists, and industry leaders. Students graduating with this degree will be certified to the Society and will receive a certificate from the American Chemical Society.
The Bachelor of Science in Biology with an option in Cellular and Molecular Biology is designed to provide students with intensive, progressive and balanced learning experiences in cell and molecular biology, organismal biology, population and community biology, and environmental science. This degree can fulfill the major entrance requirements for professional schools of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, optometry, podiatry and medical technology, or prepare the student for further graduate study in biology.
The Bachelor of Science in Earth Science offers a cross-disciplinary program that trains students for careers involving earth system science, which broadly includes the physical science behind the interactions of the lithosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere. The Earth Science program examines the contribution of those systems to natural landscapes and geological hazards, during the modern era and through geological time. It also considers the relationship of human populations to these geosystems.
The Bachelor of Science in Physics with an option in Electrical Engineering provides a strong foundation of the foundation of the natural world; from the smallest particles of matter (quarks and leptons), nuclei, atoms, and molecules; through forces and motions which determine properties of solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas; to descriptions of the behavior of matter on all scales up to stars, galaxies, and even the origin and fate of the universe. As such it is the basis of other disciplines such as biology, medicine, chemistry, computer science, geology, astronomy and engineering. For students intending to pursue graduate work or employment in Electrical Engineering, the department offers an Electrical Engineering option, intended to facilitate a seamless transition after graduation. An agreement in place with the CSU Fullerton College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science allows students to satisfy all of the course requirements for admission to an MS program at CSU Fullerton.
Actuarial Mathematics (Hons) from University of Manitoba involves the application of mathematical disciplines; particularly probability, statisticsand risk theory, to real life financial problems involving future uncertainty.
If you're good at mathematics and interested in business, a career in Actuarial Science is a path to consider.Actuaries analyze data and assess risk. They are most often associated with the insurance industry, but actuaries work in many kinds of businesses. The profession is consistently one of the most secure and highest-paying available, even during tough economic times.University of the Pacific's Actuarial Science program also prepares you for the first five professional actuarial credentialing exams (Exam P, Exam FM, Exam IFM, Exam LTAM or Exam STAM).
In thisActuarial Science course from Curtin University,you will develop the mathematical and statistical techniques relevant to model industrial and commercial processes against a financial and economic background. You’ll also learn to identify the risk factors and determine the price and cost of those risks.
