The breadth of topics you’ll study will allow you to appreciate the key positions of food in society, health and well-being, as well as in the manufacture, marketing and retailing of foods. You’ll also build knowledge of related laws and regulations.At the interface between food science and nutrition, graduates will be key in the development of new healthy eating trends. You’ll develop a broad skillset and receive the intellectual training needed to enter a range of careers.Year 1 introduces you to the major sources of food and their history, current trends in consumption, and key industrial processing operations. You’ll study food chemistry and develop your laboratory and experimentation skills. In addition, you’ll be introduced to microbiology, human physiology and nutrition; these modules allow you to gain a practical understanding of how food affects health and wellbeing, and appreciate the role of food as a carrier of nutrientsYear 2 modules deepen your understanding of food texture, flavour and taste. You’ll be introduced to the theory behind new product development, with an emphasis on the study of how food components affect the chemical and microbiological safety of food. You’ll come to understand in more detail the science behind diet and health outcomes and will examine the elements and concepts of food allergy.In your third year you will apply your skills to designing new foods, from concept through formulation and processing, through to sensory evaluation, packaging and marketing. Your team project, based on new product development (NPD), will explore the role of food scientists and of nutritionists in developing and marketing novel healthy foods to fill gaps in the present market and to meet new demands for healthy foods. You will deepen your understanding of how foods can affect health through topics that may include food and cancer, diet and cardiovascular health and functional foods.In your final year you will undertake an extended individual research project; you will be given a choice of topics to investigate in the School or have been suggested by a food organisation.
