What is... Science?
The main aim of this programme is to produce graduates with the necessary skills for employment as technicians/technologists or scientific personnel in the fields of Biosciences, Chemistry and Physics.
What are my... Career Opportunities?
Please see the course entries for: DT259, DT260 and DT261.
What other options do I have after completion?
Bachelor of Science (Biosciences) OR Bachelor of Science (Industrial and Environmental Physics) OR Bachelor of Science (Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences).
Learning Outcomes: What will I Study?
Students will be able to select from a range of specialised modules which will be delivered in the second semester of year one including; Medicinal Chemistry, Astronomy/Environmental and Energy Physics and Human Biology and Disease. Entry to this course affords the opportunity to experience the three main scientific subjects prior to committing to a specific course. After successful completion of the first year students will select and transfer to the second year of one of the following courses and will complete their studies as registered students of this course: BSc Biosciences (DT259) BSc Industrial and Environmental Physics (DT260), BSc Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science (DT261).
The course is offered on a modular basis. Six common core modules in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Professional Skills and Information Technology provide students with a sound foundation in science. Students are required to take an additional three modules commencing in semester two. Selection of these modules depends on the preferred choice of course that a student will select following successful completion of the Year one examinations.
Year Two & Year Three
Each student will transfer into the second year of one of the following three courses upon successful completion of the Year one examination: BSc Biosciences (DT259), BSc Industrial and Environmental Physics (DT260), BSc Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science (DT261).
