Description:Shaped by major food industry employers, the Food Manufacture (Operations Management) degree aims to prepare students for key operational roles within the sector, where there is demand for highly skilled managers. The course aims to give students the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge of food factory processing and automation, management, quality assurance, and new process development, offering students the chance to build a strategic overview of the industry. It focuses on the science and management of the local, regional, and global food supply chain and considers the impact of economic and environmental drivers on food markets, while aiming to develop key skills in leadership, critical analysis, and creative thinking.

This course can be studied at Foundation (FdSc) or bachelor’s (BSc) level. Both courses are offered on a part-time basis and are run predominantly through distance learning. Students typically complete the Foundation course in two and a half years and have the option to enrol on level three of the bachelor’s degree, following a short bridging course, to pursue more in-depth study for an additional two years. Direct enrolment on to the bachelor’s degree is available for students who meet the entry requirements.
