¿Qué aprenderé?

Knowledge of food and nutritional science is required in order to make decisions on such issues as food irradiation, the genetic modification of foods, food contamination by micro-organisms and toxic compounds, and food preservation.

The modern job market for food professionals demands people that have technical skills as well as an understanding of regulatory and policy issues. People with both sets of skills are in demand by all levels of government and by the private sector. Carleton’s Food Science and Nutrition program is a four-year Honours Bachelor of Science degree program. The program can be extended to five years to include co-op.

Course overview

In your first year, you will be introduced to relevant subjects, including biology, chemistry, mathematics and economics. An introductory course in food science provides an overview of the food industry (including production, processing, product development, packaging, chemistry, analysis and microbiology), as well as elements of risk assessment, policy formation and regulation.

Future opportunities

There is a demand in Canada for food science graduates with a wide range of knowledge of the entire food production continuum, as well as regulatory and policy-making expertise. Graduates of the program will be eligible for membership in the Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology and will be well qualified to work for the federal government and other agencies, as well as in industry and research. Careers in the food science and nutrition sectors include positions as quality assurance managers, consumer product officers, food technologists and food safety specialists, to name but a few.
