This programme meets the undergraduate degree standards of both the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) and the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST). It is an applied and practical programme. Balancing the development of core competency and broadness, the programme emphasises the professional, intellectual and all-round abilities of students. It is achieved through a specially designed curriculum, modern learning/teaching methodologies, multiple assessment tools, workplace learning experience, a caring and supportive learning environment and extra-curricular activities. Moreover, our department has very experienced academic staff and modern equipment and instruments.
Upon successful completion of the programme, students should be ready to take up careers in the food industry or enter into postgraduate programmes. They can also utilise the skills and knowledge that they gain from the programme for personal career development as well as for the benefit of the community.
