Food science and technology involves the application of a variety of scientific disciplines to food manufacturing. Students gain knowledge on physical, microbiological, and chemical properties and compositions of food, from raw materials all the way to finished products.
Our Food Science and Technology students can choose between two options in the third year, a research option and a work integrated education option that allow students to hone their skills through research or through experiences in industrial settings. In the final year, the students can select between two modules: food innovation and design module or culinary science module or they can explore more knowledge in many different areas of their choices.
With a degree in Food Science and Technology, career opportunities include positions in food product research and development departments; quality control or quality assurance positions in food manufacturing and related markets, food manufacturing and related markets; or establish a food business startup.
