Understanding chemical processes of the living is key to solving biological problems.

We understand biochemistry is responsible for extensive scientific breakthroughs in medicine, genetics and more. That’s why we offer Biochemistry at Swinburne.

Biochemistry is an opportunity to explore the molecules of life, including enzymes, proteins and DNA. We also provide an understanding of the fundamental nature of matter in terms of molecules, reactions and properties. You’ll also develop skills in culturing organisms and investigating complex molecules, including enzymes and DNA: It’s our way of showing you how biological knowledge can be applied to a range of industries and medical research.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your wisdom to the workplace. Future careers can be found in analytical chemistry and biochemistry, medical research, food production, fermentation technology, pharmaceutical production and more.
