This new dynamic course aims to provide students with the knowledge, creative skills and technological competences necessary for a career in the food and/or culinary sector.

This degree will benefit students who are interested in applying scientific principles to the theoretical and practical aspects of food, from production of raw materials to food product development.
The first two years focus on culinary skills and essential food science. The third year of both courses
will focus on a new food product development, entrepreneurship, and introduction to sensory and consumer science. The final years of study will focus on the acquisition of scientific skills in food science, sensory and flavour science.
