Manchester Metropolitan University has been leading the way in nutrition and food science teaching and research since 1880. This Food Science and Innovation master’s degree combines Manchester Met’s rich expertise with new technology to give you the specialist food and nutrition knowledge you need to succeed.  
From the effect of climate change on crops, to increasingly volatile food prices and unpredictable fluctuations in supply and demand, the pressures on the global food industry show no sign of abating. And, with those issues continuously shifting in focus, it’s more important than ever to find innovative solutions that adapt quickly and intelligently to problems. With this in mind, there has never been a better time to develop the skills you need to discover, innovate and shape the future of food with our MSc Food Science and Innovation.  
The curriculum of the course has been built around functional, contemporary food science skills so you can apply what you learn right away. You’ll learn from highly-qualified academics with years of industry experience and blend the latest food safety and sustainability models with key industry skills. And with units such as Future Food Sustainability, you will be given a platform to understand the pressures that are facing the industry today and develop the skill set to help solve the challenges of tomorrow.  
Delivered 100% online, you’ll study at your own pace to achieve a masters in as little as two years, growing your professional network through virtual seminars and group tasks with students across the world as you go.  
There are six intakes annually for this course, with programmes starting in January, March, May, July, September and November.
