Why study Applied Science
Scientific developments help to shape our world and provide a huge range of employment opportunities. Forensics sheds light on how crimes are committed and how accidents can be investigated in a methodical and effective way. Material science provides an understanding of how materials behave and what uses they can be put to. Biomedical Science opens doors to careers in health care related industries, giving you the choice to follow your interests and realise your ambitions. Most importantly, science is an area that is continually changing, and a BTEC Applied Science course reflects these developments and allows you to keep pace with the exciting innovations that emerge from scientific study.
