MSL50118 Diploma of Laboratory Technology develops capabilities in performing complex chemical property tests, applying spectrometric techniques, monitoring quality and more.

Emphasising procedural expertise and data analysis, the diploma is tailored for students who require a comprehensive understanding of laboratory operations and aspire to hold leadership positions or undertake further study at university. Graduates of the diploma are offered an alternative entry pathway into most undergraduate university programs in Australia - students may even receive credit towards a Bachelor of Science degree.

What types of labs are there, who works in them and what do they do?

Laboratory operations (sometimes written as LabOps) is a diverse field with plenty of opportunities for career advancement.

Lab workers are employed in industries as diverse as aeronautics, construction, mining, manufacturing, paper, health, pathology and pharmaceuticals, transportation, professional, scientific and technical services, education and training, environmental, water, wine and food testing. Anytime a product is produced, a lab is usually involved!

Example careers

Medical laboratory technicians perform chemical analyses of body fluids and tissues.

Geological technicians (geotechnicians / geoscience technicians) analyse the chemical constituents of rock, water and soil samples.

Metallurgical technicians work with ore samples to support mineral and metal processing and research.

Non-destructive testing (NDT) technicians use an assortment of analytic techniques to evaluate the performance of materials and systems without damaging them.

Agricultural / food science technical officers are involved in the production and quality control of food products.

Materials technicians, including construction materials testers, test the properties and performance of materials used in all sorts of products.

Available funding: Traineeship

Delivery location: Workplace location
