Selected major: Biotechnology
Examine the fundamental sciences that underpin biotechnology – chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology and statistics – while investigating the application of biotechnology to areas such as business, ethics and environmental science.
Students who select Biotechnology as a major may not select Biochemistry as a second major.
The Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science offers you a course focused on commercial law with emphasis on intellectual property law.
As the only double degree in Victoria with this specialisation, you'll learn about trademarks, patents, copyright, the prohibition of misleading or deceptive conduct and competition law. The course also provides an understanding of complex scientific information.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. In this double degree, you'll complete law-related professional experience placements at organisations in Australia or overseas. You'll also be introduced to the practical aspects of legal practice through moot court scenarios and advocacy exercises. You'll also apply your learning in three project units related to science in professionally focused, industry-linked projects.
The combination of degrees equips students with the skills to work within the knowledge economy and information technology businesses, as patent attorneys, and in legal fields specialising in intellectual property, media, and science.

I wanted to study somewhere with smaller class sizes and not get lost in a sea of other students. Swinburne is one of a few universities that offers a law science double degree – and the focus on intellectual property and technology really captured my interest.
