Applied Science Laboratory Techniques 5M3807 or Food Science 5M5267
What is food science/agricultural science?
This new one year course would both prepare students for the ever expanding world of quality food production. Food scientists play a role in all aspects of the food chain, from production at farm level to the retailer, to the consumer.
