Hands-On Food Science

Awaken your senses

Delve into food science and discover what is behind the aroma, texture, and taste of some of your favourite foods.

In this project, you’ll enter a product development challenge to make your own ice cream sundae. Learn about the physical and chemical properties of food and the factors that influence the sensory attributes of food and consumers' perceptions.

In our specialised sensory science laboratory, you’ll learn how scientific methods are used to measure peoples' sensory perceptions of food quality and acceptance. You’ll also get to eat the product of your labours, so come along to get a taste of Food Science.
