No further student intake
To be read in conjunction with the program of study requirements for the Bachelor of Science (Specialisations).
The Clean Technology Specialisation requires three years of full-time study (or the equivalent part-time). The Specialisation is offered by the College of Science and Engineering.
The minimum requirements for consideration for entry to all undergraduate courses are specified in detail in the University Entry Requirements.
Successful completion of one of SACE Mathematic Methods, Mathematics Studies, or Specialist Mathematics is required for entry to the Clean Technology specialisation.
The goal of this course will be to provide a high quality education by providing both an awareness of current issues and the various technological approaches to solving these issues. The streaming structure of the course will see many issues covered during the degree.
On completion of the course, students will be able to:
- demonstrate a capacity to understand and apply modern scientific principles;
- demonstrate skills in the retrieval and presentation of scientific information both orally and in writing to scientific and non-scientific audiences;
- show proficiency in critical analysis of information and capacity to solve problems;
- analyse and evaluate numerical data;
- demonstrate competence in the practical use of relevant computer and information technology;
- work effectively in a team and form strong multidisciplinary educational links through joint team projects that cross the traditional areas of science;
- understand and articulate the role of science in society;
- appreciate the ethical issues raised through the study of science;
- understand clean technology and have a sound grounding in multidisciplinary areas of clean technology;
- demonstrate an increased understanding of current industrial practice, issues with these practices and potential solutions to these issues;
- demonstrate a range of professional, scientific and computational skills that will enhance employment opportunities in a wide range of industrial and governmental institutions.
Program of study
To qualify for the Bachelor of Science (Clean Technology) a student must complete 108 units, with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, according to the program of study below.
