Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Mathematics

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

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

Combine your studies in biomedical science and mathematics to turn data analysis into real-world patient outcomes.Understanding data - how to analyse it, model it and make useful predictions from it - will continue to underpin new technologies, processes and discoveries in all areas of the economy.In the case of biomedicine, the increased capacity to generate large datasets from patients and or treatment regimens requires graduates with a capacity to understand both the biology and the mathematics.In the Bachelor of Biomedical Science you'll study how the body works, investigate how disease or injury interferes with normal function, and treatment strategies that help restore function. You will also have a high degree of course flexibility with the option to select one major or two minor areas of study that align with your interests.In the Bachelor of Mathematics you'll learn to be an agile problem solver, capable of tackling real-world problems in their full complexity, through the application of modern mathematical, statistical and computational approaches. Your specialist knowledge and skills in one of the contemporary specialisations of mathematical practice - applied and computational mathematics, statistics, and operations research - will be underpinned by a solid foundational base of mathematical training, and complemented by computational and programming skills.


Biomedical Science component consists of 96 credit points of core biomedical science studies and either one 72 credit point Biomedical Science Major and 24 credit points of elective units, or two Biomedical Science Minors (each worth 48 credit points).The Mathematics component consists of 96 credit points of core units and 96 credit points of a selected major.
