We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Food & Beverage Science offer advanced study of the properties and behaviours of food and drink. This includes the application of physical, chemical and biological sciences to food systems.
Related subjects include Food & Beverage Technology and Food & Beverage Production. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Science subject such as Biochemistry.
Courses in this field equip you with the skills to understand and develop the science underpinning Food & Beverage safety and nutritional quality.
For example, you may examine the microbiological aspects of food and drink and related systems, such as the production probiotics and GMOs (genetically modified organisms) for improved metabolism.
Alternatively, you may examine the chemical properties of food, its production or its role in the body. This could include analysing pesticides for food safety, investigating allergic reactions to food and the production of antibodies, or even improving food through the additives such as preservatives, flavourings and colourants.
Careers may include roles in multinational food manufacturers, ingredient suppliers, major retail chains and smaller companies supplying niche markets.
