Food technology projects are a major research or development project completed by the student in their final year. Students are presented with a brief outlining a problem or opportunity from a food industry sponsor, then they develop a project plan that follow to meet agreed upon aims and objectives.
The project can include research of a specific problem or the development of a new product or process. The student uses and integrates their skills gained from previous years study in research, product development, experimental design, process design, economic evaluation, project management and communication to complete the project.
A written report and an oral presentation is provided to the sponsor along with prototypes and other outputs that allow the sponsor to apply the results and recommendations generated by the student.
