    Food Science and Technology

    About

    The food industry is one of the largest in the world. Its growth, particularly into the export market, requires a high level of technology as well as professionally trained individuals to apply that technology.

    Our postgraduate courses in this discipline can offer diverse and challenging careers.
    The courses provide professional training to those employed in the food industry and those in science fields such as agriculture, nutrition, engineering, environmental health and consumer science.

    This course extends the learning of the graduate diploma to incorporate an independent research project under the guidance of an experienced supervisor. To ensure you are ready to undertake this project you will be introduced to scientific research methods and learn to measure, interpret and describe the data effectively.

    It is ideal for those wishing to increase their professional status or to diversify their career opportunities.

    Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.

    If you want to package your course with a Curtin English course, you can submit your application with your course application documents to streamline the process.

    If your application is successful, you will receive an offer that you will need to accept or reject.

    If you accept your offer, you will receive a Confirmation of Enrolment ­– a document from Curtin that details your course, how long you will be studying the course, and the tuition fees. This document can be used for acquiring a student visa.

    Apply to the Australian government for your student visa. Gaining a student visa will allow you to participate in full-time study in Australia and work up to 40 hours in a fortnight. If you’re under 18 years of age, you must have approved accommodation and welfare arrangements in place before a visa can be issued.
