Our reliance on a supply of safe food, together with the economic problems that arise from crop damage and food spoilage, mean that graduates from this programme are in high demand by the food and beverage industries. The combination of modules covering microbiology, food composition, food analysis and quality assurance provided by this degree programme equip you for such a career. Food science is the secret behind many of the products you buy in supermarkets every day. It is a multidisciplinary subject involving the application of sciences such as chemistry and biology to the study of food. Studying a broad-based curriculum, you will gain an understanding of the raw materials that will become food, how these interact, and how food science can have dramatic implications for human health. The programme includes modules from the Biomedical Science, Biochemistry, and Nutrition and Food Science programmes to allow you to broaden your understanding of related fields.
