Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Food Science and Management - DT424
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.
