Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

DT420 Nutraceuticals in Health and Nutrition



Courses related to this video..

 

A nutraceutical is any substance that is a food or a part of a food and provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease. Such products may range from isolated nutrients, dietary supplements and specific diets to designer foods, herbal products and processed foods such as cereals, soups and beverages which ultimately optimise health and nutrition.

The mission of this programme is to educate students in a comprehensive range of disciplines including scientific, technological and product development areas in order to meet with the requirements of the nutraceutical and functional food industries. Our goal is to teach our students fundamental science as it is applied to nutraceutical systems and to show its application to the solution of problems in food related health and nutrition.
