Food science, nutrition and agriculture students and graduates can grow, learn and connect with the Australian food industry at an upcoming summer school at the University of Adelaide.
The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology will run its annual summer school in February 2019 at the Waite campus.
The two-day event will provide opportunities for participants to:
- Build their professional food science & nutrition industry network among their peers, industry and academia
- Be exposed to food science & nutrition industry opportunities through industry guest speakers, who can
provide insight and advice on prospective career paths.
- Experience local site tours around Adelaide with “real world” industrial or research facilities, offering
opportunities to engage firsthand.
- Build on current skills through workshops designed to challenge your food science, nutrition & technology
knowledge and encourage critical and reflective thinking.
More than 550 students over the past eight years have attended the AIFST Food Science & Nutrition Summer School, coming together for an event that provides an avenue to learn, network and promote individual research projects focusing on the food industry.
