Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with compounds composed of atoms, i.e. elements, and molecules, i.e. combinations of atoms: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other compounds. Chemistry addresses topics such as how atoms and molecules interact via chemical bonds to form new chemical compounds.
Agricultural studies is a broad field that covers the production, distribution, management and research of agricultural goods. A bachelor's degree program in agricultural studies can help you qualify for a position as an agricultural scientist or operations inspector, animal breeder, farm manager or food technologist.
Aquatic Science is the multidisciplinary study of aquatic systems, encompassing both freshwater and marine systems. Aquatic scientists study processes that cover time scales ranging from less than a second to daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal, annual, decadal, or geological (millions of years), and spatial scales ranging from millimeters to ecosystems to ocean-wide.
Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms. It is a program that focuses on the scientific study of the chemistry of living systems, their fundamental chemical substances and reactions, and their chemical pathways and information transfer systems, with particular reference to carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. Biochemists and biophysicists play a key role in developing new medicines to fight diseases such as cancer.
Bioinformatics is the application of information technology to the study of living things, usually at the molecular level. Bioinformatics involves the use of computers to collect, organize and use biological information to answer questions in fields like evolutionary biology.
Biology is the natural science that involves the study of life and living organisms, including their physical and chemical structure, function, development and evolution. In general, biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the basic unit of heredity, and evolution as the engine that propels the creation of new species.
Biomedical sciences are a set of applied sciences applying portions of natural science or formal science, or both, to knowledge, interventions, or technology that are of use in healthcare or public health.
Biotechnology is a highly interdisciplinary field that combines biological sciences with engineering technologies to manipulate living organisms and biological systems to produce products that advances healthcare, medicine, agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals and environment control. Biotechnology is one of the fastest growing areas in applied biology. The programme gives students theoretical and practical background in biotechnological techniques and applications while developing a strong understanding of cellular biology involving microbiology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology.
Environmental health is the branch of public health that is concerned with all aspects of the natural and built environment that may affect human health. AThis program focuses on human health arising from living and environmental conditions, whether manmade or natural surroundings.
Environmental science is an interdisciplinary academic field that integrates physical, biological and information sciences (including ecology, biology, physics, chemistry, zoology, mineralogy, oceanology, limnology, soil science, geology, atmospheric science, and geodesy) to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems. Related areas of study include environmental studies and environmental engineering. Environmental studies incorporates more of the social sciences for understanding human relationships, perceptions and policies towards the environment. Environmental engineering focuses on design and technology for improving environmental quality in every aspect.
Food science draws from many disciplines such as biology, chemical engineering, and biochemistry in an attempt to better understand food processes and ultimately improve food products for the general public. Food scientists study the physical, microbiological, and chemical makeup of food. By applying their findings, they are responsible for developing the safe, nutritious foods and innovative packaging that line supermarket shelves everywhere. The food you consume on a daily basis is the result of extensive food research, a systematic investigation into a variety of foods’ properties and compositions.
General Science is a unique area of study that allows each student to design their own academic program in the natural sciences. A bachelor's degree in general science can be useful in many careers in medicine, dentistry, education, and research.
General Science is a unique area of study that allows each student to design their own academic program in the natural sciences. Postgraduate studies in science commonly focus on a single area of specialisation, allowing the student to develop a more in-depth understanding of the subject matter.
Geology is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time. A geologist is a scientist who studies the solid and liquid matter that constitutes the Earth as well as the processes that shape it.
Mathematics is the study of topics such as quantity (numbers), structure, space and change. Mathematics is the science that deals with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement. Mathematics is essential in many fields, including natural science, engineering, medicine, finance and the social sciences.
Physics is the natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion and behavior through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. Physics doesn’t just deal with theoretical concepts. It’s applied in every sphere of human activity, including development of sustainable forms of energy production, developing computer games, design and manufacture of sports equipment, treating cancer, through radiotherapy, and diagnosing illness through various types of imaging, all based on physics.
