Building solutions begins with understanding the chemical interactions.
We understand chemistry’s role in explaining how the natural and physical world work is key to uncovering solutions to real-life problems in industries as diverse as medicine to the environment, from manufacturing to farming. That’s why we offer chemistry courses at Swinburne.
Our chemistry courses are an opportunity to explore how molecules react, and how we can detect and use them. We provide the knowledge and skills needed to apply chemistry to a wide range of fields. These include medicine, food production, cleaning products and environmental protection. We do this through a strong emphasis on analytical chemistry, chemistry, forensic science and surface chemistry.
By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. Future careers can be found in chemical research, industrial chemistry, forensic science, the pharmaceutical industry and more.
