Bachelor of Biomedical Science / Master of Data Analytics

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00213J

This innovative vertical degree integrates an undergraduate bachelor degree with a postgraduate masters degree to enable students to complete it in four years (full-time). The degree is designed to produce biomedical science graduates with advanced skills in data analytics and will be of interest to students who want to fast-track their qualifications. The complexity of the human body, modern lifestyle diseases and emerging medical treatments call for graduates with diverse skill sets. The application of bioinformatics, computer science and mathematical statistical modelling continues to have a major impact on research in the biomedical sciences. The combination of these two separate but complementary study areas will be at the forefront of developments in our understanding of public health, the causes of disease and the development of new approaches to treatment.In the first 2.5 years of the program students will gain knowledge of a wide range of biomedical disciplines and use these as the foundation for the development of more advanced theoretical and practical skills in specialised biomedical science areas such as genomics, molecular biology, virology, microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, anatomy and physiology.For the final 1.5 years of the program students articulate to the Master of Data Analytics where they will develop both knowledge and skills in advanced biomedical data analytics. These include data mining methods, modern biomedical technologies, software system development and research methodologies.
