Science - Approved level 1 sequences

Normally, the units in a level 1 sequence are required for the completion of a related minor or major. The choice of level 1 sequences will influence your choice of level 2 and level 3 units and will lay the foundation for your major. If you are studying a single degree course, it is recommended that you take a third level 1 sequence in your first year to increase your options for choice of major. Generally, students completing a double degree course will not be able to fit in three level 1 sequences unless one of them is mathematics.

 

Biological sciences

One pair of:

Note 1: Students in the double degree S2007 Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Biomedical Science should replace BIO1011 and BIO1022 with BMS1011 (Biomedical chemistry) and BMS1021 (Cells, tissues and organisms). These units do not count towards the 96 points of science units required for the Bachelor of Science.

Chemistry

One pair of:

Note 2: Students in the double degree E3007 Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science undertaking the chemical engineering specialisation will count CHM1011 or CHM1051 towards the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). This unit does not count towards the 96 points of science units required for the Bachelor of Science. Students are advised to complete CHM1011 or CHM1051 in their first year.

Computational science

  • FIT1045 Algorithms and programming fundamentals in python and FIT1008 Introduction to computer science

Earth, atmosphere and environment

  • EAE1011 Earth, atmosphere and environment 1 and EAE1022 Earth, atmosphere and environment 2

Geographical science

  • ATS1310 Extreme earth! Natural hazards and human vulnerability and EAE1022 Earth, atmosphere and environment 2

Mathematics and statistics

One pair of:

  • MTH1020 Analysis of change and MTH1030 Techniques for modelling
  • MTH1030 Techniques for modelling and MTH2010 Multivariable calculus
  • MTH1030 Techniques for modelling and MAT1830 Discrete mathematics for computer science
  • MTH1030 Techniques for modelling and STA1010 Statistical methods for science

Note 3: Students with a strong mathematics background and an interest in the subject could replace the units MTH1030 and/or MTH2010 with their advanced versions MTH1035 and/or MTH2015 respectively. Students will need to seek permission to enrol in these units at the Science Student Services office.

Note 4: Students in the double degree S2004 Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Computer Science who complete MAT1830, and/or who take MTH1030 instead of MAT1841 should count these units towards the Bachelor of Computer Science. These units do not count towards the 96 points of science units required for the Bachelor of Science.

Note 5: Students in the double degree E3007 Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science choose from the following:

  • ENG1090 Foundation mathematics and ENG1005 Engineering mathematics
  • ENG1005 Engineering mathematics and MTH2040 Mathematical modelling
  • ENG1005 Engineering mathematics and STA1010 Statistical methods for science
  • ENG1005 Engineering mathematics and MAT1830 Discrete mathematics for computer science

ENG1090 (Foundation mathematics) and/or ENG1005 (Engineering mathematics) do not count towards the 96 points of science units required for the Bachelor of Science.

Physics

One pair of:

  • PHS1011 Classical physics and relativity and PHS1022 Fields and quantum physics
  • PHS1001 Foundation physics and PHS1002 Physics for engineering
  • PHS1031 Physics for the living world and PHS1002 Physics for engineering

Note 6: Students in the double degree S2007 Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Biomedical Science should replace PHS1031 with BMS1031 (Medical biophysics). This unit does not count towards the 96 points of science units required for the Bachelor of Science.

Note 7: Students in the double degree E3007 Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science should count PHS1001 towards the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). This unit does not count towards the 96 points of science units required for the Bachelor of Science.
