Masters Programs in Food

Master of Food Science and Agribusiness (Science faculty)

Advanced Food Marketing and Product Innovation

MFI hosts an entire unit in this new Monash Masters program. MFI has developed this elective unit in concert with industry to arm graduates with a proven innovation methodology for ‘Bringing New Products To Life’. This ensures students are ‘work-ready’ and can hit the ground running when they commence employment. The cohort in 2021 will number over 150 enrolments and the feedback and student endorsement continues to escalate.

Masters of Professional Engineering 2019 - Food Processing (Engineering faculty)

MFI also teaches into the Masters of Engineering with a similar ambition to the Masters of Food Science above. ‘Food’ is such a robust industry and continues to expect buoyant employment prospects for the future. Monash has built a pathway for its engineering graduates to have exposure to this industry so that students can broaden their horizons and consider ‘food’ as a career.

Food industry internships (Masters of Science)

MFI collaborates with the Monash Professional Pathways team to place students with industrial hosts for a semester in this capstone unit (FSC5091) within the Masters offering. This unit will provide practical experience and encourage scientific knowledge to be applied into researching food with outcomes that will influence future innovation and industrial practices. Industry connections embrace this placement opportunity to link with the next generation of talented Monash graduates whilst benefiting from some fresh insights and new ideas from the students.
