Study Food Science
Food science is the branch of science that specifically looks at the properties of food, and how we can apply this knowledge in the processing, production, preservation, sanitation and distribution of food. With the current issues surrounding food availability and distribution, food safety and quality, sustainability, and health and nutrition, our understanding of food is becoming more and more crucial.
An undergraduate degree in food science will give you a foundation of knowledge in the area. You will study modules on food technology, food materials and ingredients, bacterial physiology, immunology, and nutrition regulation. These modules will allow you to build your knowledge around all areas of food science.
Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical and food laboratory sessions. You may be required to take part in a food industry placement.
