BB-HSCAIN Double degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

Selected major: Biomedical Science

Use cutting-edge, interactive tech to understand the human body in a range of health and disease states and become a research assistant, lab scientist or tech product specialist.

What is Biomedical Science? It’s the broad study of biological sciences; including anatomy, biochemistry, genomics, immunology, molecular biology, pathology and physiology.

We use the same bioinformatics software as industry professionals, and with a tap of your fingers, you can dissect a virtual cadaver to learn about its body parts in intricate detail. We have recently incorporated contemporary units of study in Pathophysiology, Infections and Immunology and Genes and Genomics units to add depth and greater industry-relevance to your studies.

Our students have completed professional experiences at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Royal Children’s Hospital, Royal Melbourne Hospital, St Vincent's and GlaxoSmithKline.

If a career that champions good health for all people is something you aspire to, expand your options and focus on the future with the Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Applied Innovation double degree.

The only double degree of its kind, this integrated program combines knowledge and skills development in health science while you learn how to leverage innovation for positive change in people’s health as well as your industry.

You’ll gain the qualifications to become an effective health scientist, with core study across a variety of disciplines and majors aligned with your aspirations. In addition, you’ll gain practical and technological innovation skills that will help you develop transformative solutions to the complex challenges of today and emerging opportunities of tomorrow.

Develop complementary and cross-disciplinary skills as you learn in health science labs equipped with cutting-edge, industry-standard technology. You‘ll learn about innovation in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment supported by specialist academic teams. Grow creative confidence, foster collaboration, and hone your leadership potential as you tackle activities inspired by your passions and interests.

Swinburne is devoted to experiential study, so you’ll have ample opportunity for Work Integrated Learning opportunities in the form of placements, internships and industry-based project work.

Upon graduation, you’ll be equipped to work in health science or innovation fields – or a combination of the two. You could pursue work as a medical researcher, health policy developer, clinical technologist, or nutritionist or take a more innovation-led pathway as an innovation consultant, strategic designer or even start your own business.
