Our Bachelor of Science is for those who are interested in understanding the world and how it works. Students have the opportunity to learn in world-class facilities, including our nanoscience and chemistry laboratories, and mathematics access grid room.
By combining Science with Entrepreneurship, you’ll develop strategies to bring your big ideas to reality. Students develop an understanding of the processes, risks and rewards of entrepreneurial ventures across the globe. Be inspired to drive innovation that influence markets, economies and communities.
The Science component of the program is delivered from the Newcastle (Callaghan) campus. The Innovation and Entrepreneurship component is delivered from our state-of-the-art Newcastle city location, Nuspace.
