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. There are two majors in the Bachelor of Food Technology with Honours degree:
• Food Product Technology - you’ll learn how to lead and manage food product development from idea generation to product launch
• Food Process Engineering - you’ll focus on engineering principles, learning how to design processes and use technology to create effective food production systems.
Although you do need to choose one of these majors at enrolment, you can change your mind as you learn more about the food industry during your study. You have until half-way through your third year to make your final specialisation choice.
- Successful completion of the LPU programme and IELTS 6.0 (no band less than 5.5).
