Introduction

THIS COURSE IS IN TEACH-OUT AND WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS. PLEASE SEE K7J MASTER OF APPLIED SCIENCE (SPECIALISATION) INSTEAD.

Special Note: This Masters course is not approved by DEEWR for student income support payments (i.e. Youth Allowance and Austudy).

The Master of Applied Science is a four semester full-time or eight semester part-time course offered on the Hobart and Launceston campuses by most Schools of the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. While the course for full-time students is the equivalent of four semesters, students with an acceptable background may be able to complete the course in three semesters over one calendar year.

Admission & Prerequisites

A bachelor degree in Science or Applied Science at the University of Tasmania or an equivalent award from another university or tertiary institution.

Entry points


To recognise the variety of tertiary education backgrounds of applicants, the course has the following three entrance points:

  • Advanced Component -- applicants who have completed a suitable three year degree with a major in the area of study of application in the MAppSc, for example a student with a BSc majoring in mathematics who wishes to study mathematics in the MAppSc;
  • Consolidation Component -- applicants who have completed a suitable three year degree with a major in a different area of study to that proposed in the MAppSc, for example a student with a BSc majoring in mathematics who wishes to study computer science in the MAppSc; and
  • Bridging -- all other applicants admitted to the course.


Course Objectives

The course aims to:

  • provide students with opportunities to acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills in a range of basic physical, computational, mathematical, earth and life sciences;
  • provide graduates with advanced knowledge in one science discipline; and
  • meet the needs of industry, business and government agencies.


Career Outcomes

Graduates of the Master of Applied Science will find employment opportunities in their areas of specialisation. These opportunities are similar to those listed under the career outcomes sections of the Bachelor of Science (including Honours).
