About the Program

This program provides training for those interested in beginning a career with the food and beverage manufacturing industry. It is a general preparation program that includes an overview of the food industry, an introduction to foods and food science, a comprehensive course on food safety, a description of different processing methods and an overview of the principles of food manufacturing. All theoretical training is supported by laboratory practice (food chemistry, microbiology, sensory evaluations, shelf life studies), food processing experience at a semi-industrial (pilot plant) level and by a non-paid placement in industry. This placement will give students the opportunity to be exposed to a real food manufacturing environment and to further develop their understanding of food processing and food safety.
