Course summary


The food and drink industry is the biggest manufacturing sector in the UK, larger than the automotive and aerospace sectors combined. The sector is worth more than £20 billion a year. Its aims are to produce high quality, safe and affordable food at the lowest environmental cost.

There is a shortage of people with the skills needed to handle 21st century changes in food production, including nutrition, world population growth, IOT (Internet of Things), infomatics and automation, food personalisation, health, wellness and sustainability.

This course, delivered by specialists with industrial knowledge, will give you the theoretical and practical knowledge needed in the food industry, which, combined with relevant industrial training and experience, can help you on the path towards becoming a chartered engineer.

Course structure

The course follows a modular structure, with students completing 180 credits over a 12-month period. Students take 60 credits of core modules, 30 credits of optional modules, a 30 credit development project providing skills in advanced design practice, and a 60 credit summer project which develops skills in research.

The course utilises an integrated educational approach in which lectures, example classes, laboratories and information technology form key elements.


Chemical engineering and food science at Nottingham has a long history of collaboration with industry, our graduates consistently gaining top jobs with major companies. This course equips students with a solid understanding of food process engineering, and transferable skills in demand by employers, for the development of food processes and products.

This programme can provide a strong foundation for further study at PhD level, and the pursuit of a career in research.
