The School of Applied Sciences and Engineering offers a number of major and minor sequences creditable to the Bachelor of Science and related awards; these are offered on the Gippsland campus and by off-campus learning. Available studies range across the biological, chemical, environmental and mathematical sciences, together with psychology and information technology.

Students should consult individual unit* entries for details of prerequisites and scheduling. Some sequences include units with prerequisites that are not included in the sequence itself. Some upper-level units are offered every second year, but sequenced to allow completion of a major over three consecutive years. Also, some other units are offered in off-campus mode every second year only.

All units have a value of 6 points unless otherwise indicated. Some entries for a science area of study may refer students to an associated area of study; in these instances the reference is to the relevant area of study for the same campus.

Occasional reference is made to desirable or prerequisite studies in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) - those students who did not study the VCE should seek advice about unit choice for students with qualifications other than the VCE.

* If specific units must be studied, in each science area of study they are referred to by the full unit code and title in the first instance and by their code only thereafter. Where units can be chosen from a group of related units, these are referred to by the three-letter prefix common to all of the units in that group (eg ASP - astrophysics units).
