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 are generally the same. These types of roles are usually referred to as 'technical' roles and the industry currently lacks enough 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

Principality Stadium, there's great food and endless shopping, a diverse culture, innovative architecture and even coastal activities in Cardiff Bay!
