Food and nutrition science is all about what we eat, how it impacts our wellbeing, and ways we can change the game for longevity. It’s a growing field where expert-level skills are much sought-after. Be prepared to master contemporary food tech and drive innovation.

Our Master of Food and Nutrition Science is designed to develop specialist skills and empower future food visionaries. You will:

  • understand the importance of a secure, sustainable and healthy food supply
  • formulate and package foods with specific functional and nutritional properties
  • expand your knowledge of nutrigenomics and metabolic nutrition
  • apply sensory and flavour science to new product development
  • discover innovative and emerging processing and preservation techniques
  • critically evaluate legislative and regulatory policy
  • build peer relationships in your own learning space, within the University’s dedicated Food Innovation Laboratory
  • complete an independent capstone research project.

You could create and market previously undreamt-of sensory experiences. You might revolutionise nutritional therapy. Perhaps you’ll innovate in the beer and beverages world, make microalgae meats, or popularise new insect-infused edibles.
