Introduction




               Follow these steps before you choose your Year 11 and
               Year 12 subjects:

               1. USE Section One to find out more about: the Student
                  Education Profile (SEP); the importance of your Overall
                  Position (OP); Field Positions (FPs); the Queensland
                  Core Skills (QCS) Test; and the tertiary selection
                  process in general.

               2. REFER to Section Two to investigate your Areas of Interest.
                  Decide which areas most interest you and which you would
                  like to pursue as a career.

               3. USE Section Three to check out the Tertiary Courses that
                  relate to your Area of Interest. These are listed by institution.

               4. CHECK Section Three for the Course Entry

                  section has information about subject prerequisites, other
                  requirements such as portfolios and auditions, and the priority
                  given to particular Field Positions for each course.

of technology.

Laser sciences involves combining a variety of theoretical and
practical skills that lead to an understanding of the fundamentals of
optics, spectroscopy, the principles of laser design and construction,
the interfacing of computers and microprocessors to laser and optical
instrumentation, and the use of these technologies to address
technological challenges in the research and industrial arena. Graduates
are employed in jobs relating to the design and manufacture of optical
information systems (eg barcode scanners, text and graphics
reproduction), compact disk technologies, laser systems for industrial
and agricultural alignment functions, lasers in spectroscopic
applications such as particle sizing and atmospheric remote sensing,
and lasers in medicine and ophthalmology.

Materials science combines interests in a variety of fields of science
and technology. It includes the development of new materials as well
as the study of existing ones including metals, minerals, glasses and
ceramics, synthetic and natural polymers, composite materials,
electronic and photovoltaic materials, crystal growth, and nano and
biomedical materials. New materials are increasingly part of everyday
objects as well as high-tech devices, and materials science study has
important applications such as forensic investigation or in assessing
the condition of materials in existing structures, eg aircraft or heritage
buildings.

Physics is concerned with the fundamental properties of the universe
(nuclei, atoms and molecules), and with the laws that govern their
behaviour. Some areas of specialisation are in mechanics, relativity,
nuclear physics, optics, microprocessors, geophysics, measurement
and instrumentation, and radiation physics.

VETERINARY SCIENCE

Veterinary science deals with the production, husbandry and care
of animals in health and disease. These may be food animals,
companion animals and animals in their native environment. Veterinary
science provides students with a basic training suitable to serve both
groups and to work in related sciences. More than half of the veterinary
graduates are employed in private practice, the remainder work mainly
for government departments or in universities or research institutes.
Employment is also found in wildlife and conservation, in policy
planning for large companies with agricultural interests, and in
developing countries where animal agriculture is vital.
