Global Pathways to New Zealand:
Massey University, in partnership with Jiangnan University, offer a joint degree programme in Food Science & Technology. This is an official Sino-Foreign Joint Education Programme approved by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China.
Students will be allocated to this programme in accordance with their Gao Kao score and will commence in September of the same year.
Students undertaking the joint programme will study for three years at Jiangnan University before attending Massey’s Manawatu campus, in Palmerston North, New Zealand, to complete the research-intensive fourth year. Massey staff from the College of Sciences will travel to Jiangnan University to teach, allowing both institutions to work together to produce high-calibre food industry graduates.
Students will be awarded a Bachelor of Food Science and Engineering degree from Jiangnan University, and a Bachelor of Food Technology with Honours degree from Massey.
New Zealand Qualification
Massey University’s Bachelor of Food Technology with Honours is the only degree in Australasia that combines food science, food engineering and food business. Our graduates are highly employable and sought after.
Massey University’s Bachelor of Food Technology with Honours has been producing graduates for the New Zealand and international food industries for more than 50 years. It is the only degree in Australasia that combines food science, food engineering and food business.
At the end of the four-year programme, you will be able to move directly into key roles in the food industry (such as product development, process improvement or food engineering) without further training.
Massey’s food technology programme teaches you the fundamental and applied food technology skills that you will need in your career. You learn not only in the classroom, but practical laboratory and workshop sessions that focus on real industry problems and solutions.
The study of food technology is science and engineering-based. It combines fundamental sciences, mathematics, chemistry and physics - and the more applied sciences and engineering - with business and management. Through the Food Product Technology major, you’ll learn how to lead and manage food product development from idea generation to product launch
