A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.
Food sciences focuses on the study of food, with an emphasis on creating reliable, sustainable, and safe food sources. Understanding food sciences may lead to important discoveries in food technology as well as the production and maintenance of a healthy food supply.
Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

Master of Food Engineering and Bioprocess Technology (FEBT)
FEBT focuses on two areas of specialization: Food Process Engineering and Bioprocess Technology. Food Process Engineering focuses on the application of engineering principles to the design of postharvest and food processing equipment; changes that may occur within products during handling, processing, and storage; measuring and controlling the quality of raw food materials; food supply chain safety; the handling and utilization of wastes generated during on-farm processing. Bioprocess Technology dedicated to the developments in biotechnology and its applications in agro/food, functional food, biopolymers, dairy and meat science, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Industrial bioprocess technology for the conversion of raw agricultural products to useful food products, biomaterials with specific growth promoting properties are developed for application in organic farming. To strengthen applicability of microorganisms for specific purposes, courses are given in genetic engineering of microorganisms. DNA with interesting properties is transferred to produce strains for industrial applications.... [-]
