About Food Science (BSc, MSci), BSc (Hons), MSci (Hons) - at University of Leeds

Our Food Science Integrated Masters degree 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, sustainability, properties, and composition of foods and the changes which they undergo during storage and processing.

This programme will give you an in-depth understanding of food processing, texture, flavour, food formulations, product development, and food safety. We will also explore how to maintain and improve food quality and safety, and understand how food is utilised and how it interacts with our bodies. You will investigate operations that are applied to preserve foods as well as special procedures that are used to produce everyday commodities. We will also consider issues surrounding the sustainability of ingredients and manufactured products, and study the effects food and drink can have on our health and wellbeing. Additionally, the programme provides you with a grounding in organic chemistry, physics, human physiology and cell and molecular biology, which you will apply throughout your course and particularly during your final year individual research project.
