The variety of food and drink available to us is continually increasing in its quality, diversity, and interest. This course will help you develop the skills to be at the heart of the food development process adding value to a complex and exciting food industry. You will learn about the range of ingredients available to the food industry, how these ingredients are sourced and how they react together to form some of our most familiar foodstuffs. You will learn to develop food that can be transported through a sophisticated supply chain whilst retaining its quality for today’s discerning consumer, learn about commercialising products, being able to reconcile the conflict between adding value and the cost of a product, and the importance of a clear business strategy to support this. If you wish you will be given the opportunity to enter new product development competitions and start your own food business with the support of Harper Adams expertise to guide you. Students who undertake the BSc degree (also referred to as an Ordinary degree) will typically complete their award in four years (including an industrial placement year), with successful completion of the award graded as either a pass (with commendation) or pass. The main difference between this and a BSc (Hons) degree, is the reduced volume of study and assessment required by the BSc degree. The BSc degree and the BSc (Hons) degree share a common first year, which provides an opportunity for transfer between the two degree types subject to academic performance. 4 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement. A three year programme is available for applicants with at least two years, full-time relevant work experience. Please contact Admissions for further information on this option.
A wide range of assessment methods are used. Depending on the module these include examinations, assignments, practical spot tests and presentations
