Course summary

One of the top ranked Food Science and Nutrition schools in the country, we offer an Institute for Food Science and Technology accredited Food Science programme that equips you with the depth and range of knowledge you’ll need for a successful career in the food industry. Food science is a far-reaching discipline that applies the pure science subjects of chemistry, biology and nutrition to the study of the nature, properties, and composition of foods and the changes which they undergo during storage and processing. Food science is also concerned with maintaining and improving food quality and safety. This programme will give you an in-depth understanding of food processing, food texture, flavour, food formulations, product development, and food safety. You’ll investigate operations that are applied to preserve foods as well as special procedures which are used to produce everyday commodities. You’ll also study the effects food and drink can have on our health and wellbeing.
