Course Information

In this double degree, you can embrace your passion for science and learn how to analyse, model, interpret and visualise data to develop forward-thinking solutions for contemporary practical challenges.

You'll gain a foundation knowledge across all areas of science, giving you the flexibility to decide what you'd like to focus on next, and gain specialised skills and practical knowledge for a professional career in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical or mathematical sciences.

With a strong focus on hands-on learning, you will have access to our state-of-the-art testing labs and facilities and work on real and authentic projects. Throughout, you'll be taught by some of Australia's leading researchers, who are tackling the big issues of today.

You will pair what you learn in the lab with the practicality of your data science degree, which includes all the legal and ethical issues associated with the ways society handles and protects its information.

Industry and expert connections

Your final year is centred around hands-on projects, which are the core of our unique employability program. You'll gain experience with local and international industry partners and be prepared to enter a wide range of careers. You will have the option to engage with university research, undertake an extended fieldwork program in your major or complete an industry placement.

Graduate outcomes

With combined qualifications in science and data science, you'll be equipped with a highly desirable skill set that will allow you to find work in a range of data-focused roles across the scientific sector and beyond. You may find positions in private, public and not-for-profit enterprises of all sizes.
