Beschreibung


"Many aspects of how we understand science has evolved dramatically over the past 100 years. Biological and Chemical Sciences is a course designed to equip our graduates with a wide range of key skills and a knowledge base that are integral to a wide range of differing disciplines within science.

One of the main aims of the course is to ensure our graduates have a good solid understanding of popular areas of science such as microbiology, genetics, cell biology, human physiology and biochemistry/chemistry, whilst developing integral practical skills associated with these areas."

"WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Biological and Chemical Sciences HNC

On successful completion of the programme you should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • The fundamentals of biological and chemical sciences – including cell biology, chemistry and physiology. At this level you will be introduced to the basic scientific principles;
  • Human anatomy and physiology – you will be given a basic understanding of human physiological and anatomical systems;
  • Chemistry – you will be introduced to fundamentals of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, electronic structure and the periodic table. This will include properties of chemical substances and specific chemistry sessions related to s, p and d-block elements;
  • Cell and molecular biology – you will be introduced to the eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell structure, whilst exploring topical themes such as the emergence of multiple antibiotic resistant bacterium;
  • Practical laboratory/academic skills – you will be introduced to a range of basic practical skills in all areas of the programme. You will also learn about appropriate health and safety techniques and good laboratory practice. As well as this you will be introduced to scientific report writing.

Biological and Chemical Sciences HND

  • Advanced skills for biochemical science
  • Organic chemistry
  • Cell and molecular biology
  • Advanced physiology and pharmacology

On successful completion of the programme you should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • The fundamentals of biological and chemical sciences – including cell biology, chemistry and physiology. You will develop a core understanding within the sciences, with applications to industry and the health sector;
  • Physiology – you will begin with basic physiology and anatomy of the major physiological systems in the human body. You will apply this knowledge to more complex interactions and laws that dictate and affect physiological function, whilst introducing basic pharmacological principles and drugs used to treat a range of diseases;
  • Chemistry – at this level you will examine in greater depth the branch of organic chemistry, its functional substrates, bonding and mechanisms;
  • Cell and molecular biology – at this level you will gain a developed understanding of eukaryotic cell structure and the complex cellular regulatory processes, with the application of this knowledge to a number of emerging applications of molecular techniques within the area of gene technology;
  • Practical laboratory/academic skills – you will apply knowledge of small scale investigations, integrating some principles of project management and the associated processes.

Biological and Chemical Sciences BSc (Hons) Degree

  • Skills for science
  • Principles of chemistry
  • Cell biology
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Applied practical science
  • Analytical chemistry
  • Cell and molecular biology
  • Advanced physiology and pharmacology
  • Employability and project management skills
  • Organic and analytical chemistry
  • Pathophysiology of disease

On successful completion of the programme you should be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • The Fundamentals Biological and Chemical Sciences – including biology, chemistry and physiology. You will develop your core understanding within the sciences, with a particular focus on the application of fundamental scientific principles within analytical industries. At this level you will also develop a critical appreciation of Biological and Chemical Sciences to enable them to develop practical skills in a range of scenarios;
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology – you will be given an understanding of human physiological and anatomical systems and apply knowledge to complex principles that dictate physiological functions. At this level you will also develop critical analysis of a variety of human systems and the diseases that affect them, which will be underpinned by current research and thinking in these areas;
  • Chemical Composition and Analysis – you will be introduced to fundamentals of inorganic, physical and organic chemistry, electronic structure, bonding and periodicity. This will include examining properties of chemical substances and specifically related to s, p and d-block elements and will look at the underlying principles of carbon chemistry and radiation processes. At this level there will be a major focus on comparing and analysing analytical techniques and applying them to real life case studies, based on organic and inorganic materials;
  • Health & Disease issues – you will be introduced to basic pharmacological principles and drugs used to treat a range of diseases and gain a developed understanding and critical analysis of the complex pathophysiology and aetiological causes of a variety of topical diseases, whilst observing the clinical signs and symptoms used to diagnose these disorders;
  • Cell & Molecular Biology – you will study eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell structure whilst beginning to explore bacterial diversity and emerging antibiotic strains with the application of this knowledge to a number of emerging applications of molecular techniques within the area of gene technology;
  • Project Management – you will gain an applied knowledge of small-scale investigations, integrating some principles of project management and the associated processes. At this level you will also undertake an independent investigative project, using principles of project management and knowledge of health and safety and ethical procedures.
HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?

This course will be taught through a variety of methods – lectures, tutorials, self-directed learning, textbooks, module webs, scenario-based learning sets, professional libraries and resources, journals and case studies, seminars, discussion forums and peer-to-peer learning.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

Assessment will take the form of individual and group coursework, which is vocationally relevant. The wide range of assessment techniques used at Coventry University College will ensure that you have every opportunity to demonstrate your skills and knowledge in full.

We have less examinations and more coursework, presentations and case study based assessments, which try to mimic work placements and employability establishments. Assessments take place during and at the end of each six-week block.
