SCMB Courses 2017
Keeping your options open...
Below are the School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences' course offerings at second and third level for 2017.
Students moving from first to second year can keep their career options open by gaining more experience in the core molecular disciplines. The courses provide a strong foundation in biochemistry & molecular biology, molecular genetics, microbiology, immunology and chemistry - knowledge that lies at the core of many of the science jobs available.
If you are considering a future in molecular bioscience, chemistry or medicine, strong training in core molecular disciplines is essential. The key courses are not restricted to the biological sciences. Chemistry, for example, is known as the central science because chemistry knowledge assists understanding in many areas of the biological and biomedical sciences. Additionally, there is a shortage of qualified chemists - graduates are in strong demand and salaries are rising.
Biotechnology is another expanding industry, gaining increasing recognition for its contribution to the economy. Australia is now known as the biotechnology hub of South-East Asia and Brisbane is playing a major role. Biotechnology combines disciplines like genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology.
