Bioengineering with Second Major in Food Science and Technology

Single Degree with 2nd Major

Food security is one of the key concerns locally and globally due to the convergence of factors. Singapore has since repositioned to play a strategic role in to ensure the food security through research and development in urban agribusiness. It covers diverse aspects relating to modern farming practices, to reduction of food wastage through better processing technologies, to appropriate nutrition needs for the ageing population.


The Food Science and Technology Programme at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is a collaborative effort with the world renowned Wageningen University and Research (WUR) from The Netherlands. It is an inter-school and interdisciplinary strategic initiative at NTU, and trains students with adequate skills needed for the demands of national food security and associated new food industry.

Candidates must meet the minimum entry requirements of the respective Bachelor of Engineering programme, including the minimum subject requirements. Please refer to the Office of Admissions for more information.

Students will be selected from each school to join the FST from the 2nd year of their BEng/BSc programmes. 5 core courses of this major (consisting of both theoretic and practice parts): Food Chemistry, Food Microbiology, Food Process Engineering, Food Physics and Quality System Operations will be taught by the faculties from Wageningen University with coordinators at NTU. Students will be able to choose NTU-FST prescribed elective courses from CCEB and SBS. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme will benefit students who are interested in NTU BSc/BEng programmes and at the same time have a strong curiosity about food process with engineering and industrial point of view.
