Master in Nutrition and Food Sciences - Máster en Nutrición y Ciencias de los Alimentos
Students will have the chance to work on a complex, open-ended research-based project. This will develop their systematic approach to a problem and require project planning and the ability to analyse, interpret and communicate results proficiently. The completion of the research provides a pathway towards postgraduate research degrees through the development and demonstration of research-related skills.
Completion of a recognized bachelor degree
Meet English requirements.
* Some programs have additional entry requirements, please contact UNSW for this information.
The Master of Science program is designed for food scientists and graduates wishing to develop and expand their knowledge and skills in their current area of expertise.* This will enable students to meet or maintain professional accreditation standards and to provide opportunities for continuing professional development, as well as the opportunity to interact with those at the cutting edge of their discipline. Students will develop their technical knowledge and ability to analyse food science problems. They will also gain further skills in solving food science problems and justifying professional decisions.
Students must complete 96UOC of courses to be eligible for the degree, and must complete:
At least 18UOC of research-based courses (at least 12UOC of which must be advanced research-completion courses)
At least a further 24UOC of advanced disciplinary courses
This degree is offered in the following specialisation (stream):
Food Science and Technology FOODKS8037
A specialisation consists of 72UOC specialisation courses and 24UOC elective courses. A specialisation (stream) must include:
at least 24UOC of advanced disciplinary courses
at least 18UOC research-based courses (at least 12UOC of which must be advanced research-completion courses).
the balance of 72UOC made up of disciplinary knowledge courses
Students may use elective courses to exceed the minimum requirements of a specialisation.
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 Authority.
