Master of Food Science
My postgrad study helped me to form a comprehensive idea on my area of specialisation and allowed me to meet a lot of interesting people with great personalities and beautiful minds.
Our flexible, advanced options in Food Science and Technology provide students with a deeper understanding of the agrifood business. At UNSW, you’ll gain the strategies and tools to increase efficiency and performance, and the opportunity to learn alongside like-minded industry professionals.
This program is designed for students with a science background who wish to deepen their knowledge in food science and technology. It’s also for engineers who want to move into food science with a science based perspective.
Students will have the chance to work on a complex, open-ended research-based project. This will develop their systematic approach to a problem and require project planning and the ability to analyse, interpret and communicate results proficiently. The completion of the research provides a pathway towards postgraduate research degrees through the development and demonstration of research-related skills.
