Why choose the department of Food Science…

Welcome to the department of Food Science and Technology.

The multidisciplinary nature of the programmes offered in the department, as well as exposure to the industry (visits to food factories, practical work in the Department’s pilot plants), allow graduates to pursue a large variety of careers in the food and the food-related industries, based on each individual’s personal interests. The interface between food science, nutrition, health, food service is an area of increasing concern to consumers, government and the food industry. There is an increase in consumer awareness of the impact of diet and the foods we consume on health-related diseases and well-being. Government recognises the multifactorial causes of hunger and malnutrition in our region and is committed to addressing this issue. Since consumers rely on the food industry to provide healthy, nutritious, safe and high-quality processed foods, scientists employed by food and related industries will play an increasingly important role in the future to ensure that consumers have access to safe, high-quality foods that are nutritionally beneficial and safe.

    I applied the same course two years back and even paid at your offices in your main campuses but i never got any response from you.

    i am a graduate of bsc chemistry from Moi but have never worked in any science related field. after graduation i took a job in sales and have done so ever since.
    ( this class has not started in msa)
    Msham Adam.
