You will then undertake a Science Internship in your third year to develop your skills in data analysis and research.

Held over six weeks, this industry placement assigns you to a government department or private organisation in Western Australia, nationally or internationally, where you are expected to apply the expertise you have gained so far. See Bachelor of Science for more details.
