The STEM subjects are driving our modern world. Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are the fastest growing academic and practical fields. As they expand rapidly, businesses are searching for appropriately qualified graduates, and Pearson Institute has responded to this challenge. Of all the degrees we offer, the two in highest demand include a Bachelor of Science (Biomedicine) and Bachelor of Science (Computer Science).
Our BSc Biomedicine is an academically challenging 3-year course aimed at curious and hard-working students eager for high rewards. Not only is this degree taught by both academic staff and working professionals, but the degree includes modules such as Sales Management, Project Management and Selling Skills alongside the more traditional subjects like Microbiology and Protein Biochemistry.
The incorporation of working professionals offers students the skills and knowledge to successfully function is a cutting-edge domain, learning from those successful members already in the field. The modules provide not only academic biomedical instruction but also instruction in fields which prepare students for their working lives, and thus practical knowledge and experience.
Also including instruction by working professionals as well as academic staff, our Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is an equally challenging yet rewarding degree. Alongside auxiliary modules such as Project Management, this degree includes modules in:
The IT world is dynamic and fast changing, a characteristic reflected in the Pearson Institute’s approach. A large third year project concerning databases, for example, is a direct application of theoretical knowledge to a current practical problem.
Both of these courses are available at our Midrand campus, and have similar entry requirements. Any student who has completed a foundational programme at the Pearson Institute is welcome to apply, as are school leavers with more than 50% for Grade 12 English and Mathematics (Biomedicine requirements also include Biology/Life Sciences), or holders of a bachelor’s degree from any accredited national or international university.
