Make the world a safer place

Disease is a significant factor limiting the productivity of livestock and affecting human and animal health in both developed and developing nations. New, emerging and re-emerging diseases of animals can have a considerable effect on a country’s economy, as well as impacting directly on the lives of the community, farmers and their families. In this course you will obtain the skills essential to minimise disease incursions, monitor the presence of diseases and design and evaluate control measures to restrict disease impact.

In this degree you will also complete a one semester project leading to a short dissertation. These projects can be developed specifically in a topic/area that you are passionate about, furthering your knowledge and experience in the field and expanding your future career opportunities.
