B-SCNCE v.2 Bachelor of Science (Science)
Course CRICOS Code: 061600D
Registered full-time Duration: 3 Years
Bachelor Degrees prepare students to develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills in a discipline for professional work and further learning corresponding to AQF level 7 qualifications.
This course enables students to pursue their interest in science by choosing a major from the following list, as well as one stream where listed associated with that major (options shown in brackets): Chemistry (streams: Biological Chemistry; Analytical and Forensic Chemistry; Geochemistry); Coastal and Marine Science; Computing (streams: Computer Science; Cyber Security; Information Technology; Software Engineering); Environmental Biology; Environmental Science; Extractive Metallurgy; Geophysics; Geographic Information Science; Industrial and Applied Mathematics; Financial Mathematics; Mine and Engineering Surveying; Mining; Multidisciplinary Science; Physics (streams: Mathematical Physics; Materials Physics; Astrophysics; Environmental Physics); Biochemistry (streams; Chemistry; Environment); Industrial Optimisation (YUS China students only).
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
Course Entry and Completion Details
Applicants for a Bachelor Degree are required to meet University academic and English language entry standards; details are provided at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au and include flexible entry pathways. Any specific course entry and completion requirements must also be met.
Please refer to individual majors for specific entry requirements. The Industrial Optimisation Major is available to Yanshan University (China) students only. Completion of Year 1, 2 & 3 of the Bachelor of Management (Industrial Management) at Yanshan University, China, plus demonstration of English competency (as per Curtin standard requirements). STAT is only accepted for the Multidisciplinary Science Major (Written English and Multiploe Choice Verbal and Quantitative) and Geographic Information Science Major (Written English and Multiple Choice Quantitative). STAT is not accepted for any other major. It may be used to meet University English competency requirements combined with other relevant qualifications.
Credit for Recognised Learning
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au.
Credit for Recognised Learning
Professional recognition may be granted depending on the area of interest. Please see the Major of your choice for further details.
Pathway to Further Study
Graduates may qualify for entry to a Bachelor Degree with Honours and some Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Master degrees. For further details, see the University website http://curtin.edu.au.
Course Entry/Completion Note
A Science & Engineering Enabling Course is available for those students who do not meet Curtin University entrance requirements. This allows students to not only meet Curtin entrance but also to study all pre-requisites required for further study in the areas of engineering, science, health and information technology.
Bachelor Degrees typically contain a series of units which may include compulsory (core), optional or elective units to cater for student preferences. They may contain a range of majors, streams and/or minors for students to choose from to pursue learning in a specialised area of study.
Students enrolled in Majors with at least 100 credit points of elective units are able to enrol in a Minor course of study from the School of Science or elsewhere in the University. Students articulating from Yanshan University (China) will enrol directly into the Industrial Optimisation Major.
Course Learning Outcomes
A graduate of this course can:
1. gain knowledge and experience in science, learning skills and professional practice and understand the theoretical basis of their chosen area of study.
2. apply scientific principles and methodology to the solving of scientific problems, thinking creatively to develop innovative solutions.
3. access and competently use information technology and a variety of tools to retrieve, manipulate, transform and present data and information.
4. communicate effectively, in writing and orally, using language and visual representation appropriate to purpose and audience.
5. understand the constructs of the scientific method and apply these principles in representative exercises using new technologies.
6. develop independent study and time-management skills that will enhance their learning capabilities in subsequent years of study and their professional life.
7. be aware of the diversity of international perspectives associated with the sciences, and how these impact on practice the practice of science
8. understand and appreciate cultural diversity and how it impacts on the practice of science.
9. display a very high standard of professional behaviour, both independently and as a team member, through the use of ethical practices in the scientific field.
