Bachelor of Applied Science (Ecology) (SC01)

Ecology is the study of relationships between organisms and their environment.
Ecologists seek to understand why animals plants or micro-organisms are found where they are. They investigate why they are common or rare, or what makes their numbers change from time to time and place to place. As an applied science, ecology is used to design strategies for the management of populations of organisms ranging from iconic endangered animals to species that are harvested for food or insects that are vectors of diseases impacting on human health or agriculture.

The ecology major at QUT allows you to gain a broad range of scientific skills, including the specialist techniques required for conserving endangered wildlife, solving problems with invasive species and other pests, managing our local and national fisheries, and evaluating issues associated with the sustainability of our natural resources in the face of climate change and increasing human impact on the environment.

QUT staff will provide every form of assistance possible, but it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure the accuracy and validity of your enrolment. Your Course Summary is the authoritative source on which units to complete and the order of progression required to get you to graduation. Make sure you provide an accurate mailing address for University correspondence and keep it up to date. Failure to receive a notice because of change of address is not a sufficient excuse for missing a deadline or obligation. The University will deem that correspondence issued to your recorded mailing address has been received. You must activate your QUT student email as it will be used for a range of correspondence and notification by the University including Library notices and fee statements. It is important to be aware of all Student Rules and administrative dates to avoid any financial or academic penalties.Policy and procedures on enrolment
