The Master of Science (Extension) aims to renew and broaden students' scientific and industry experience with managerial and business acumen. It provides students with numerous opportunities by value-adding to their existing specialisations and bringing them up to speed on knowledge and technologies, or by expanding into different majors of interest to acquire professional and management skills. [+]

The course contains a compulsory core of professional subjects relevant to all science disciplines. The subjects in the core provide a backbone of skills important to a professional scientist; be they engaged in research, science businesses, industries or government organisations. These are the skills of communication, critical analysis, project management and innovation and commercialisation. The professional strand is complemented by a choice of major study in a specific science or mathematics discipline. Students may have the option of undertaking a small research project, subject to approval by the faculty. For students with suitable achievement levels, an opportunity to undertake a more substantial research project is available by transferring into the Master of Science (Honours) (C04267). For those considering a research degree, the Master of Science (Honours) provides a pathway to a PhD. The final session of electives allows students to complement their existing skill set using tailored subjects from related disciplines across health, engineering and business.... [-]
