About this course

Measurement is at the heart of scientific discovery, and the frontiers of knowledge are expanded through the development of new and more precise instrumentation. This program draws on the history and current expertise of three leading research schools at ANU: the Research School of Physics and Engineering, the Research School of Earth Sciences, and the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Each of these Schools are at the forefront of modern scientific research and have outstanding pedigree in the development of advanced scientific instrumentation. You will be learning from ANU scientists who have worked on projects including: * the design and development of instrumentation for the Nobel-prize winning discovery of gravitational waves * a high-resolution ion microprobe for geological analysis * a high-resolution x-ray computed tomography instrument for the study of porous and disordered materials, and * an integral-field spectrograph for an international, next-generation, thirty-meter class optical telescope.

Assessment of Qualifications

Unless otherwise indicated, ANU will accept all Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications or international equivalents that meet or exceed the published admission requirements of our programs, provided all other admission requirements are also met. Where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will base assessment on the qualification that best meets the admission requirements for the program. Find out more about the Australian Qualifications Framework: www.aqf.edu.au

ANU uses a 7-point Grade Point Average (GPA) scale. All qualifications submitted for admission at ANU will be converted to this common scale, which will determine if an applicant meets our published admission requirements. Find out more about how a 7-point GPA is calculated for Australian universities: www.uac.edu.au/future-applicants/admission-criteria/tertiary-qualifications

Unless otherwise indicated, where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will calculate the GPA for each qualification separately. ANU will base assessment on the best GPA of all completed tertiary qualifications of the same level or higher.
