There is a growing demand worldwide for highly trained graduates in food science and technology, for positions in the food and food-related industries. The MSc Food Bioscience programme is designed to meet that demand.
The programme introduces you to how the food industry works and offers the appropriate skills required for employment in the food and related industries.
As part of the programme, you will undertake a laboratory-based research project: the project is intended to develop independent investigative and practical skills. The key element is to undertake independent evaluation of a food specific issue. While a range of topics are available you are actively encouraged to propose your own projects based on individual interests.
The Department is highly rated for its research interests which include food microbiology, food chemistry and composition, food texture and properties, food processing, food product development, fermentation and novel foods.
Further research concerns aspects of carbohydrate biosynthesis, chemical and physical aspects of food, nutritional properties and industrial applications. The department is also home to a UKAS accredited laboratory which is used for teaching, research and by commercial partners
The programme is categorised by the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) and also by the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS). MSc Food Bioscience meets REHIS’ entry requirements for training as a food officer with local authorities.
