A degree in food science explores the details of food chemistry, production, development and safety and can lead to a range of careers in manufacturing, research and retail as well as associated health, legislation, engineering and agricultural options. Jobs directly related to your degree include:
Food technologist, Nutritional therapist, Product/process development scientist, Quality manager, Regulatory affairs officer, scientific laboratory technician, and Technical brewer. Jobs where your degree would be useful include: Chef, Production manager, Purchasing manager, Research scientist (life sciences), and a Toxicologist. Employers value work experience and so if your course does not include an industrial placement try to get some related experience in the holidays.
