Students will apply their skills, knowledge and understanding to activities relevant to one pathway: food, environmental or human sciences.
Across two years the course will cover a selection of the following topics:
- Science Fundamentals
- Laboratory Techniques
- Scientific Analysis and Reporting
- Human Physiology
- Control of Hazards in the Laboratory
- Human Nutrition
- Cell Biology
