This is a prestigious new programme combining the Biological Sciences (Honours) programme with the highly popular Food Sciences and Technology as a 2nd Major, in partnership with the University of Wageningen and School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences in NTU.
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 Physics, Food Microbiology, Food Process Engineering, and Food Quality Design, will be taught by the faculties from Wageningen University with coordinators at NTU. Students will be able to choose prescribed electives from SCBE, SBS and SPMS. 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.
