The course provides students with an advanced knowledge of tools and methods of product and process development in the food industry. Students develop project management and problem solving skills, and learn to plan and lead projects in all stages from development of concepts through to implementation, considering consumer insight, regulatory requirements, formulation and costs analysis, scale-up, sensory evaluation, stability and shelf life validation, and to deliver results within allocated time, resources and project success criteria. The course also applies and integrates basic principles of science and technology learnt in previous semesters through formulation of food products and development of manufacturing processes.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
