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.

This two year full-time programme provides students with scientific and technical understanding of food science and associated technologies as well as the business skills required to respond to the current needs of the food industry.

In food science, the biological, physical and engineering sciences are applied to study the nature of foods, the causes of deterioration, the principles of food processing, and the improvement required to meet consumers demand. This programme provides education and training in the practical and theoretical aspects of food science in addition to the basic sciences such as biology, chemistry, microbiology and maths. In addition to its scientific content, this programme also offers education in the fundamentals of business and management which are essential to bring food products to the marketplace.

The programme features a major practical project in the second year, in which students work together in teams to apply their learned scientific and business management knowledge in the development of food products. These projects often develop innovative products targeting specific nutritional needs of consumers or emerging market trends.
