Broaden your career opportunities by studying Advanced Science and Engineering together. The Advanced Science degree differs from the Bachelor of Science with the inclusion of advanced-level courses, an Honours year and options tailored to your aptitude and interests. In addition to foundation subjects such as biology, chemistry, physics and maths, you also have access to more than 26 advanced fields of science.

During your studies, you will develop the critical and analytical thinking needed for the successful completion of the research-based Honours year.In the Engineering degree you will have the opportunity to apply yourself to engineering design and enquiry projects, professional engineering practice, engineering and technical management, and research. Choose from a wide range of specialisations, from traditional disciplines such as Civil Engineering or Electrical Engineering, through to those tailored to modern challenges, such as Renewable Energy Engineering.
