About

Find out more information about Molecular Sciences

Molecular sciences is a cross-disciplinary field that studies molecular materials, structures and systems and their application to real-word problems. Molecular sciences serve as a basis for other scientific areas such as medicine and pharmacology, bio-molecular engineering, ecology and environmental sciences, neurobiology, materials and chemical engineering. Masters in Molecular Sciences also involve aspects of scientific innovation and discovery, ethics and environmental sustainability.

Specialised courses in molecular sciences are based on the main focus areas of biology, chemistry, physics and technology. Classes may include topics such as: molecular biology, molecular life sciences, biomedical and molecular sciences, chemical and molecular sciences, molecular health sciences, molecular science and technology, or molecular science and engineering.

Students in molecular sciences also have a significant study choice when it comes to academic specialisations, since each university will advance their own set of research areas. Examples of specialisations include: design and synthesis of molecular structures, biological chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology, materials and food chemistry, biomedicine and biomelocular interactions, clinical molecular genetics, environmental biology, etc.

Professionals typically work in medicine and medical engineering, pharmaceuticals industry, cosmetics, agriculture and forestry, forensic sciences, scientific consultancy. Many welcome the possibilities to gradually advance in management positions, while others continue their research as senior scientists.
