Description

Advertisement

This programme provides graduates with an insight into measures that are required to provide a supply of safe and wholesome food to consumers globally. A wide spectrum of food safety and quality management issues are addressed following the farm to fork approach.

Topics covered include: good governance and national control systems; food inspection and testing services; legislation and private standards; and management of food safety and quality within the supply chain as well as in hotels and restaurants.

Students also acquire a knowledge of the design and management of safety and quality management systems based upon risk analysis, e.g. Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), ISO 9001:2008 designed to meet the requirements of national and international legislation and private standards.

Individual courses are offered on a stand-alone basis. These are attended by professionals working in the food industry. This gives our postgraduate students the opportunity to interact with and learn from a range of practitioners.

Career options

These programmes provide professional development for government officials, environmental health officers and those employed in the food industry, such as food technologists, postharvest technologists, food chemists, food microbiologists and laboratory staff.
