True, meaningful change for the way we live lies at the crossroads of science and innovation. And those crossroads are encapsulated in Swinburne’s unique Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Applied Innovation double degree.

Tailor your science degree to your liking. Draw on the expertise of leading teachers, researchers and industry experts. And specialise in the discipline of your choice with majors available in applied mathematics, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, environmental science and physics. With practical application of knowledge through project-based units of study, you’ll develop the skills, knowledge and key theoretical insights required to work in a range of professional scientific environments.

The Bachelor of Applied Innovation amplifies your science-based thinking by developing your collaboration, creativity and problem-solving skills in real-world contexts. Working on activities inspired by your passions and interests, and undertaking placements, internships or industry-based project work, you’ll benefit from interdisciplinary, experiential learning. You’ll tap into your creativity, curiosity and leadership potential as you gain the skills to build a better future.

After graduation, a future in your chosen science field awaits - with the added benefit of future-ready training in professional innovation practices. Pursue the science position you’ve hoped for with the skills and knowledge required by current and projected industry needs, or discover new ways to career fulfilment with innovation roles such as innovation consultant, strategic designer, transformation lead, innovation strategist and innovation manager.
