With the BSc Food Science course students will learn from world-leading authorities on food and discover how to tackle the exciting challenges facing Europe's largest industry. Develop the expertise to meet society's demand for safe and sustainable food products with University of Reading's accredited BSc Food Science degree.

Food science is the study of the quality, safety and nutritional purposes of foods. This course aims to give students the scientific skills and knowledge base needed to understand food processes and meet society's demands for safe and sustainable food products. 

Students will study the fundamental science behind food and nutrition, the processes involved in production, and human physiology. They will also gain experience of using key technical skills through sensory evaluation, laboratory-based practicals and work in Reading's pilot-scale food processing plant. During the final year students will have the chance to put these newly learned manufacturing skills to the test in the "Product Development" module. Students will be given a brief by industry and work as a team to produce an original product, which they will showcase at an end-of-term trade show. 

A key component of this degree is a year-long professional placement, which occurs between the second and final year. Placements can help enhance their employability and build their network. Previous students from the Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences have undertaken placements with: Mars Food, Graze, Marks & Spencer, and Bakkavor.
