Food engineering blends engineering disciplines with a strong understanding of food and food science. It develops solutions to food design, manufacture and supply challenges whilst overcoming the unique issues that underpin safe food production. Food engineering covers a number of areas including • mechanical engineering • process control and efficiency • automation and manufacturing systems • food science and food safety • energy efficiency.
Food engineers help to deliver innovative and high quality products to customers throughout the world. They apply the mechanical engineering study of structures, systems performance, and how fluids behave, to safely and efficiently produce food and drink. Food engineers can specialise in design, development, research, maintenance and operations such as processing, packaging, storage and transportation.
Degree requirements for this program are:
- FSc /A Level 60% or DAE 2nd Division
You gain experience designing experiments and testing food engineering techniques and systems in our specialist engineering and food laboratories. By applying technical knowledge to practical challenges faced by industry, you build the skills and knowledge to develop innovative solutions to problems. You also learn how these techniques can improve product quality and reduce the impact on the environment, while maintaining industrial competitiveness.
Other areas you study include the cost effectiveness, financial justification and efficiency of processes. Finally you develop knowledge and understanding of management and leadership.
You are taught by experts with extensive industry experience including research and consultancy in food, engineering and manufacturing. We have strong links with leading companies who provide real world examples to learn from. These companies, along with other major food and drink manufacturers, helped design the course to ensure it gives you the skills and knowledge needed for a successful career in the food and drink industry. Industry professionals also deliver guest lectures to provide you with the latest expertise and industry knowledge.
Your studies are supported by integrated, competitively paid industrial placements. These placements ensure you gain extensive workplace experience, developing your ability and employability. They are provided by the food and drink industry for all students on the course.
As well as the paid work placements embedded in the course, you attend industry field trips to a range of companies to develop your technical and professional knowledge of equipment and processes.
