    The experience


    HIgh-tech facilities

    Our state-of-the-art sensory lab facility drives research into understanding the sensory and emotional response of consumers towards food products, while our advanced analytical lab facility drives research into phytochemicals, viticulture and new bioactives. Both support the agriculture and food industries to produce high-quality products that are sought after by consumers around the world.

    Work with industry-leading mentors

    It’s not just what you know that matters – it’s also who you know. University of Melbourne alumni work at all levels of industry, governance and research in the food sector, and many have chosen to mentor students in the Master of Food and Packaging Innovation and other courses to pass on their knowledge and meet the next generation of leaders.

    Students who are selected for the mentoring program have the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the Australian food sector and connect with industry experts at events and one-on-one meetings.
