The Master Degree in Food Science and Technology/Department of Nutrition and Food Technology is awarded by the Faculty of Graduate Studies at Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST).
Explanation of physical and chemical interactions between various constituents resulting from processing operations often lead to physical sensory, and nutritional changes in foods.
The goal of the Plant Science Program is to develop a thorough understanding of plant growth and function under challenging environmental conditions, such as those found in Saudi Arabia. The fundamental biology of plants is studied at a range of levels (e.g. genomic, proteomic, metabolomics), and the interactions of plants with their environment, both abiotic (heat, salt, and drought) and biotic (pathogens and symbionts) are investigated. Application of this knowledge will allow development of plants with enhanced tolerance to environmental stresses and help to establish sustainable agriculture systems in arid regions of the world.
The Bioscience program plays a key role in tackling many of the global challenges being addressed by KAUST, with a general emphasis on what we term Adaptive Biology or the study of the mechanisms that allow organisms to adapt to their environment. The unique location of KAUST on the shores of the Red Sea makes comprehensive exploration of the biodiversity of this unique ecosystem and its potential biotechnology applications possible.
