Food science is an applied science dedicated to the study of chemical, physical and biological makeup of food. Working in manufacturing and research settings, you’ll apply scientific expertise to food products and processes — helping to ensure the food and drink we consume meets safety standards.

Utilising principles of microbiology, engineering and chemistry, you’ll also analyse the content of food to determine nutrient levels, investigate new ways to improve taste and nutritional value, and find ways to optimise food processing, packaging and distribution.

Typically, food scientists are employed by food manufacturers, retailers, universities, government organisations and research institutions.
