  • Course description
    Overview
    Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes that occur in living organisms including the structure and function of cell processes and biochemical molecules such as DNA and proteins. Biochemistry underpins many of the disciplines required for research, development and industrial applications in medical and agricultural fields.

    Recommended Study
    Chemistry and Biological Science. Why Choose this course
    QUT biochemistry students acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical laboratory and computer skills to understand and solve a wide range of biochemical problems. Your hands-on practical experience commences from your first year of study.

    Advanced topics include the purification and manipulation of various molecules using sophisticated laboratory apparatus. You will also learn molecular simulation techniques using specialist computer programs available in our teaching laboratories. This practical experience combined with a thorough grounding in biochemistry theory will allow you to compete favourably in negotiating your future career.
    Career Outcomes
    Strong employment opportunities for biochemists exist around the world in both the private and government sectors of industry. QUT graduates skilled in biochemistry can find career opportunities in diagnostic and analytical laboratories, universities, hospitals and health departments, pharmaceutical companies, primary and agricultural industries and departments, food industry laboratories, environmental agencies, and veterinary pathology laboratories. Alternative career paths in the marketing and sales of biotechnology equipment or commercialisation and management of biological products and processes are available.

    For those wishing to enter research in honours and PhD programs, biochemistry offers a huge scope of intriguing and intellectually rewarding projects.

    Professional Recognition
    Graduates are eligible for membership of the Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), and in some cases the Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemists (AACB).

    Your course
    Year 1
    You will undertake introductory core studies in a range of scientific areas including life sciences, chemistry, physics, mathematics and environmental science to give you a solid foundation for your future studies. Following these introductory studies you should be in a position to confirm your choice of a major area of study.

    Year 2
    You will build on the concepts introduced in first year and you will consider molecular interactions in cell metabolism and function and the flow of energy and information within the cell.

    Year 3
    You will encounter current experimental theory and practice in biochemistry, including the exciting new developments in molecular modelling, metabolism and proteomics. You will be provided with knowledge and analytical skills that will serve you well in the workforce or lead to further study.
