There is a shortage of individuals trained in a systematic approach to solving development and research challenges in the food industry and and allied industries such as cosmetics and pharmacy. Graduates from this degree should have a wide spectrum of job opportunities.
You will acquire advanced understanding of food sciences enabling you to face product development and technical challenges encountered in the food industry to manufacture high quality foods.
This course includes a laboratory and/or pilot production facility based research project. Most projects will be integrated with an industrial sponsor, although others will be available. Project proposals by applicants to the course will be considered.
