Students must complete 48UOC of courses to be eligible for the Graduate Diploma. This Graduate Diploma is offered in the following specialisations (streams):
Food Science for Chemical EngineersFOODLS5037
Food Science for BiochemistsFOODMS5037
Specialisations may be specific for entrants with particular backgrounds and hence quite prescribed, or more general for entrants with a three year Bachelor degree in Food Science. A specialisation (stream) must include at least 36UOC of Disciplinary Knowledge courses. A number of specialisation courses may be offered in both internal and external attendance modes and may be delivered in regular sessions, block or intensive modes on or off campus.
At the discretion of the Program or Stream Authority, students may be required to develop their foundational disciplinary knowledge through enrolment in undergraduate level courses that are deemed appropriate by the Program or Stream Authority.
