Food and Bioprocessing

Food and Bioprocessing

The Food and Bioprocessing specialisation will allow you to deepen your knowledge of bioreactors, bio-commodities, pharmaceuticals, food process design, food product creation, food quality, food safety and food industry innovation.

The specialisation explores a range of new and emerging technologies in processing, extraction technologies used in the production of food and bioproducts, and the application of bioprocesses.

You will also learn how to select, adapt, and evaluate food and bioprocessing options.

P Completion of 72 credit points of units of study
N AGEN3004

This unit needs to be available as a non-award course so that students seeking admission to the MND have an option to fulfil the 6 cp Food Science prerequisite, if their previous study does not fulfil this requirement already.
Semester 1
Units taken for the specialisation will also count toward requirements of the Chemical and Biomolecular stream.
