Overview

With the advancement of food technology, food manufacture has allowed for enhanced food quality, improved food safety and increasingly competitive options for consumers. Developments in food production have also given way to consideration of the impact on food safety.

Our Food Science MSc will provide you with a broad knowledge of food science focusing on chemistry and biochemistry, whilst giving you the necessary background understanding of physics, mathematics, and biology to excel in this field. You will develop the ability to apply fundamental scientific concepts to understand and manipulate the complex characteristics of foods. The programme will also allow you to challenge current issues in food production and issues arising from food safety.

Course content

Throughout the programme you will analyse and critically appraise complex factors, including sociological and ethical issues that influence the range, quality and acceptability of foods produced in an industrialised society.

Through a combination of practical laboratory classes and lectures underpinning scientific theory and knowledge, you will gain the ability to integrate scientific knowledge with an understanding of food technology.

In the final months of your programme, you will have the opportunity to focus your studies in areas of particular interest to you through your research project, which will be influenced by current research thinking within the field. The research project will also help you to develop the personal skills you will need to communicate effectively in future professional activities such as presentations.
