B.Sc. in Food and Nutritional Sciences

Course summary

The two integrated parts of the programme, food science and nutritional science, systematically familiarise students with professional and practical knowledge of both fields. Along with introductory food and nutritional science courses, students first take fundamental courses on human physiology, genetics, microbiology, cellular basis of biochemistry, and fundamentals of biochemistry, etc. These prepare our students for more in-depth study of food and nutritional sciences. They can then choose from a range of specialised food and nutritional sciences courses and conduct directed research on a relevant topic under supervision.
