From hardware engineering to biomedical imaging, from micro-imaging to spectroscopy, explore exciting research opportunities at the CAI!


Honours is a challenging year of study in which you will undertake your own research project under the supervision of one of our Researchers. Skills developed throughout the year are communication skills, scientific writing, research design and analysis, critical thinking, and develop practical skills relevant to your research project.  You will be a member of a research group that uses cutting edge imaging technology to work towards a common goal. Completion of the Honours program enables you to proceed directly to an MPhil or PhD. 

Students are typically enrolled through the School of Biomedical Sciences  or School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences  but will complete their research project at CAI.
