Overview

Bachelor of Science - Chemistry

Study the Chemistry major in the Bachelor of Science and explore environmental, biological, organic, physical, inorganic, food and analytical chemistry.

Developing new products and processes, and experimenting with the make-up and behaviour of different chemicals are some of the challenges chemistry graduates get to take on. A degree in chemistry opens the door to a wide range of career options, both in and out of the laboratory. 

You gain essential practical laboratory skills needed to be successful in scientific employment – here and overseas. AUT chemistry graduates have careers in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, petrochemicals, toiletries, plastics and polymers. 

There are also opportunities in the food and drink industry, health and medical organisations and scientific research organisations.

Workplace experience

In your final year you can enrol in the Research Project course (30 points) if you have at least a B grade average in 60 points at level 6. This may involve working on an industry-related project related to your major.
