Course Overview

Food Science is a multidisciplinary science that intergrates various fundamentals and potential aspects of food molecules, post-harvest processing and food quality assessment. Food science includes the application of scientific/technological knowledge in minimising post-harvest losses; increasing agricultural productivity, improving the quantity, safety and nutritional quality of crops and animals by all available "tools", including biotechnology and food safety.

In this programme, students will be introduced to the good laboratory practice, manufacturing practice, current food preservation techniques, food processing technologies, food microbial risk accessment and the industrial best practices and will apply them in the form of assignments and final year projects.

There will be advantages if studying Food Science in UTAR, as the students will have opportunity to interact with other science students, for example Agricultural Science, Biotechnology, Microbiology , Biomedical Science and soon Dietetics with Nutrition.
