The Food Science Program offers opportunities for advanced study and research leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in the areas of Food Chemistry and Biochemistry, Food Process Science, Food Microbiology, Food Safety and Toxicology, Food Biotechnology, Food Quality Evaluation and Wine Biotechnology.
Graduate training in Food Science normally involves a combination of courses in both basic and applied sciences, with research leading to a thesis. Students are encouraged to publish their research results in refereed journals.
Coursework is selected in consultation with the student’s supervisory committee and includes graduate courses in food science and from other disciplines relevant to each student’s research area.
