BIOCHEMISTRY ONLINE COURSE - DISTANCE LEARNING

Catalyse your career with Biochemistry II.

This informative course focuses on the important building blocks of life such as: amino acids, proteins, sugars, polysaccharides, lipids, enzymes, vitamins, homones, RNA and DNA. There is an emphasis on biochemical molecules which will help prepare you for Biochemistry III (Biochemical Processes) for which this course is also a prerequisite.

acetylglucosamine.Biochemistry has its roots in medicine, nutrition, agriculture, and natural products. It covers many other areas as well, but today it is mostly is concerned with the chemistry of molecules found in and associated with living systems, especially the chemistry of these molecules. Biochemists are always trying to break processes down in order to understand how these work, how molecules are created or destroyed and how they relate and affect each other. With the advent of modern computing and technology, biochemists also study intact systems and how each system functions and the other structures or processes that may be affected.

Prerequisite: Plant or Animal Biochemistry I - or equivalent knowledge.

STUDY CLIMATE SCIENCE THROUGH ONLINE, HOME STUDY

Learn to explain the various factors that cause weather conditions

Climate science is the study of atmospheric conditions, which are generally determined by factors such as temperature, wind, air pressure and water vapour at any specific time. 

Climatology may examine past climates through geological data and other sources, along with current climate data to understand climate patterns and predict future weather and climate. Climatology makes use of statistical data and numerical models to try and understand climate but since there are so many different variables and complex processes involved, climate science is not an exact science because the equations used to apply physical laws are generally approximations.

LEARN THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANTS TO HUMAN LIFE AND GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY


Plants are very important to more industries than what most people imagine; from pharmaceuticals to pollution control and construction to tourism.
Through this diploma, you learn to understand plants, and grow your awareness of how and where that knowledge may be applied in business for commercial and social benefits in the modern world.

This course is very practical, experiential learning. By encountering what you learn in a variety of different contexts, your learning is reinforced as you progress through your studies: and that means it becomes embedded in your longer term memory, and is less likely to be forgotten than what might be learned in shorter knowledge or competency based courses.

This course establishes sound practical skills and knowledge about working with plants; but more importantly, also fosters your awareness of the real world, and where a knowledge of plant science can be applied commercially. It fosters your networking with the scientific and business communities, and raises your awareness of how what you learn can be applied in industry for business opportunity as well as social and environmental benefits.

Opportunities abound for anyone who has skills and knowledge os science

IF they can apply that knowledge in a practical way, to:
  • Improve Productivity or Efficiency
  • Create Innovative Products or Services
  • Save or Make money
The problem with many science courses, is they produce graduates who understand the complexities of science; but are not tuned to how that knowledge can be applied. Surveys have shown that the majority of university science graduates have great difficulty finding work where they can apply their learning. This is a "crazy" situation, in a world where industry is being advanced so rapidly by the application of science.
 
Clearly scientific knowledge alone is no guarantee of success: but science is a critical component for success!
 
This course is designed to develop scientific knowledge and skills that have an application and are in demand in today's world. It is a unique Diploma designed for people wishing to work, or already working, in science related jobs who want to further their knowledge and understanding in the sciences. Either to improve employability or further a professional career.

Learn Environmental Chemistry

As humans devised ways to make the world safer, healthier, or more productive for them by introducing new and/or increased use of existing chemicals and resources, very often these same chemicals have caused unforeseen problems later down the line that are of great concern.  As a result, there is a swing towards reduced use of resources and adoption of eco-friendly lifestyles, sustainable and organic production, green chemistry and engineering.
