Beyond the confines of the classroom


Be a part of the team that designs food to excite the taste and imagination through food science and technology. Come join the ranks of food scientists and technologists to launch innovative new products to meet the needs of today’s ever curious and adventurous consumers!

Through Design Thinking, innovative teaching and industry-linked projects, you will discover the world of food – from raw materials to ingredients, processes and packaging to finished consumer products! As a food scientist or technologist, you can play an important role in making our foods more appealing yet healthier and safer!

Come journey through the Diploma in Food Science and Technology (DFST) on a D.I.E.T. (Discover, Integrate and Express with Technology) by honing your skills through basic science modules and uncovering the mysteries of food in Year 1.

In Year 2, you will integrate your food science knowledge through opportunities in ideating food concepts, performing sensory evaluation and conducting shelf-life studies, to transform raw materials into consumer focused end-products.

In Year 3, you develop processes and design food packaging that reduce food wastage and achieve sustainability of future food products. You can do this by choosing your DFST path through internship or through actual experience by taking a B.I.T.E. (Business design Infused with Technology Experience) in commercial projects.

With so many choices, what’s holding you back from choosing DFST?
