science" is a term which more often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, and not the knowledge itself. It is "often treated as synonymous with ‘natural and physical science’, and thus restricted to those branches of study that relate to the phenomena of the material universe and their laws, sometimes with implied exclusion of pure mathematics. This is now the dominant sense in ordinary use." This narrower sense of "science" developed as a part of science became a distinct enterprise of defining "laws of nature", based on early examples such as Kepler's laws, Galileo's laws, and Newton's laws of motion. In this period it became more common to refer to natural philosophy as "natural science". Several other major areas of disciplined study and knowledge exist today under the general rubric of "science", such as formal science and applied science.

The Faculty was established in 2002, merging the considerable strengths and facilities of the previous Faculty of Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences and the Faculty of Science, with locations at the University of Adelaide's city, Roseworthy and Waite campuses. The Faculty is internationally renowned for excellence in education and research in such fields as biomedical sciences, agricultural, environmental and earth sciences and is a leader in emerging fields such as photonics.
The School offers a large selection of programs and courses, from apprenticeships and traineeships through to Diploma and Advanced Diplomas, combining expertise in science, technology and health. The programs and courses provide students with a variety of entry and exit pathways.The focus is on providing real job related training to maximise employment opportunities.Depending on their area of study students may continue their education via articulation into higher-level programs within the University.
Science is not just a field of study, it is also a philosophy and a way of viewing the world. Scientists are critical thinkers, using evidence to justify our beliefs in how the universe, the world and life work. UTS Science is housed in a modern building with state-of-the-art instrumentation available for researchers and students. It is a vibrant Faculty, melding technology and creativity to advance our knowledge and capabilities.

The Sunshine Coast is a rapidly growing area, and the Faculty of Science, Health and Education offers students a large number of innovative programs across a diverse range of areas in science, health and education to meet the challenges posed by this growth.
The Food Science and Nutrition program aims to produce graduates having: Scientific knowledge in the food science and nutrition disciplines; Competence in practical methodologies appropriate to the profession of food science and nutrition; Capability to interpret, analyse and present data; Skills in oral and written communication; and An awareness of their social responsibility in producing safe, wholesome and acceptable foodstuffs. These attributes should lead to graduates who are committed to:
Science is one of the most versatile areas of study, opening opportunities across a wide range of disciplines. The School of Medical and Applied Sciences is responsible for teaching and research in the fields of applied science, medical science, environmental science, exercise and sport science, paramedic science, medical imaging, medical sonography, oral health and chiropractics. Our programs are taught using both distance education and internal modes, and across a number of CQUniversity Campuses including Bundaberg, Mackay and Rockhampton.
The School of Natural Sciences prides itself on being a leader in research and teaching excellence in the areas of Biology, Environment, Chemistry and Brewing. It is our commitment to this excellence that has resulted in biological and environmental courses receiving a five-star ranking from graduates Course Experience Questionnaires.
The Faculty of Arts and Sciences provides undergraduate and postgraduate courses for approximately 4,500 students at six campuses located in Brisbane, Canberra, North Sydney, Strathfield, Ballarat and Melbourne and at various offshore locations. Each year more than 1000 students commence in our programs and approximately 20% of our students are international students drawn from countries across the world.
The School of Environmental and Life Sciences is responsible for teaching and research in the fields of biological science, biomedical science, environmental science, chemical science, exercise and sport science.

Science allows us to explain our world and consequently underpins our understanding of the most significant discoveries we make, and issues and challenges we face. Human health, sustainability, biotechnology, climate change, water management and food production are some of these areas explored through science. The skills acquired through the study of science therefore have broad application and are sought after in a diversity of careers.
The School of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology at Murdoch University has built an impressive reputation over the years as a result of its longstanding and popular degree courses and commitment to research.
