Overview

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.

Career options

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.

Course intended learning outcomes

1.0 An understanding of the nature, practice and application of the chosen science discipline.
2.0 Encompasses problem-solving, critical thinking and analysis attributes and an understanding of the scientific method of knowledge acquisition.
3.0 The ability to acquire, develop, employ and integrate a range of technical, practical and professional skills, in appropriate and ethical ways within a professional context, autonomously and collaboratively and across a range of disciplinary and professional areas, e.g. time management skills, personal organisation skills, teamwork skills, computing skills, laboratory skills, data handling, quantitative and graphical literacy skills.
4.0 The capacity to engage in reflection and learning beyond formal educational contexts that is based on the ability to make effective judgments about one's own work. The capacity to learn in and from new disciplines to enhance the application of scientific knowledge and skills in professional contexts.
5.0 An awareness of the role of science within a global culture and willingness to contribute actively to the shaping of community views on complex issues where the methods and findings of science are relevant.
6.0 An understanding of the different forms of communication - writing, reading, speaking, listening - including visual and graphical, within science and beyond and the ability to apply these appropriately and effectively for different audiences.
7.0 An ability to think and work creatively, including the capacity for self-starting, and the ability to apply science skills to unfamiliar applications.

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed an Australian Year 12 qualification, Australian Qualifications Framework Diploma, or equivalent Australian or overseas qualification at the required level.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 176-184.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Assumed knowledge

Mathematics; any two units of English.

At least two units of science relevant to the individual discipline chosen is recommended; HSC Mathematics Extension 1 is recommended for those majoring in mathematics/statistics.

Course duration and attendance

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.

Course structure

Students must complete a total of 144 credit points to graduate. Subjects offered by the University have been classified as introductory (normally taken in stages 1 and 2), intermediate (stages 3 and 4) and advanced (stages 5 and 6 or later). In the Bachelor of Science, students are required to complete one of three introductory foundation streams (mathematical sciences, physical sciences, life and environmental sciences). Upon the successful completion of first year, they may choose one of the majors that follow from that stream. The chosen major specifies a series of intermediate and advanced subjects that, if taken, result in award of a Bachelor of Science in that major.

Alternatively, students may choose not to take a specific major but a flexible mix of subjects of interest and graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree without a specified major. If so, they must complete 36 credit points of intermediate and 36 credit points of advanced science subjects. In doing so, students must ensure that they have completed the required prerequisite subjects at each stage. It cannot be guaranteed that all subjects that students in a flexible program wish to take together can be timetabled without clashes and so students need to check timetable constraints before final subject choice each session.

The Bachelor of Science also contains 24 credit points of free elective subjects that enable students to increase their expertise in other areas of science or other disciplines in the University. This can be in the form of a specialised 24-credit-point sub-major or by a varied selection of subjects.

Students must satisfactorily complete 120 credit points of specified major or flexible science subjects and, in addition, 24 credit points of elective/sub-major subjects for award of the degree.

Changing majors

Students may change majors in certain circumstances. Students wanting to change majors within the Bachelor of Science are required to raise an e-request via Ask UTS.

Industrial training/professional practice

Students studying this course have an opportunity to undertake an internship subject and receive academic credit for their placement off campus (an external business or research institute) or on campus (UTS research institutes or departments), in a capacity relevant to their academic studies.
