Degrees offered:

Master of Science (Food Science)

Master of Science (Nutrition)

 

Master of Science (Food Science)

Introduction

The Food Science Program offers the Master of Science degree by thesis and coursework. These fields of study are closely related to food production from the point of harvest or slaughter until it is marketed and reaches the consumer in conditions that satisfy the consumer’s requirements in terms of food safety and taste.
The Master of Science program complements the Doctor of Philosophy program that comprises only research work. Graduates from this program will gain sound knowledge in the fields of Food Science and Nutrition. It is hoped that these graduates will apply the knowledge gained in the areas of research and production of nutritious foods, food safety and quality, food regulations as well as food and nutrition education programs.

Program Structure

All candidates of this programme have to register and pass 40 credit hours, of which 29 credit hours are from core courses and 11 credit hours from elective courses. Students may take any of the elective courses to fulfil the requirement.
