Investigative

The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with sophiscticated technology. These types prefer mentally stimulating environments and often pay close attention to developments in their chosen field.

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Career Progression

The Bachelor of Science in Applied Biosciences and Biotechnology produces graduates with the requisite skills and knowledge in bioanalysis, bioassay, microbiology and DNA-based methods. This BSc meets the demands of biotechnology, food and pharmaceutical industries for technologists and analysts. In addition the requirements of the services and research laboratories for staff trained in advanced biologically based analytical techniques are met by graduates of the course.
