Why Food Science?

Food Science and Technology roles are typically based in food and drink manufacturing businesses with a crucial responsibility for managing food safety, ensuring food quality, meeting legal requirements on areas such as labelling and the research and development of new products. The roles vary slightly by company, particularly in reference to company size yet the knowledge and skills required to carry out the function are generally the same. These types of roles are usually referred to as 'technical' roles and the industry currently lacks enough technical people. The UK and Wales suffer through the shortages of technical people, therefore roles are paid pretty well, particularly for graduates where it is possible to achieve long and successful careers. Cardiff Metropolitan University benefits from a graduate programme which enables us to place graduates in a job at the end of their studies.

Why study at Cardiff Met University?

Cardiff Metropolitan University is located in the Capital City of Wales where you will find international entertainment such as the Six Nations Rugby in the Principality Stadium, there's great food and endless shopping, a diverse culture, innovative architecture and even coastal activities in Cardiff Bay!

Cardiff Met has a purpose built state-of-the-art food and drink facility, the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre, which exists to support food and drink students and industry to develop technical, operational and commercial capabilities.  Our team of internationally recognised food and drink industry experts are available to assist across a variety of food disciplines including baking, confectionery, dairy and meat technologies, food safety and hygiene management, packaging design, technical management systems, marketing and new product development.
