Course summary

Course overview: This is the ideal launch pad if you have an interest in a career as a food scientist, food technologist or food engineer. You can complete an optional work placement year, at no extra cost. As the world population increases, food technologists are challenged with developing innovative applications in agricultural technology, biotechnology and processing of raw food materials, as well as understanding the link between food, nutrition and health. The work is varied, stimulating, challenging and offers excellent career prospects. Currently over one million people are employed in the UK food industry, which is worth around £75 billion to the gross national product. Almost every food item you see in the supermarket will have had some input from a food scientist, food technologist or food engineer during its development. With an in-depth knowledge of agricultural food production, the raw food materials and how these can be handled, processed and packaged, such professionals ensure that the food offered to consumers is safe, nutritional and meets legal health and safety standards. As well as requiring technical skills, their work may include business development, marketing and management. After the course: You will be equipped with the knowledge, understanding, experience and skills appropriate to food science and technology. This will provide you with a range of career opportunities in the massive food sector. There is a growing UK and international market demand for graduates in this area.
