To fulfill the needs of food industry development and food supply of the society, this program is designed to train international technical talents, who are armed with basic theory and skills in food science and technology, chemistry and biology science. Students registered for and trained under this program will become familiar with international food science and engineering work, including food production, storage, processing, circulating and nutrition. They could be the Chinese friendly, international experts in food industry on food research and development, engineering design, production management, quality control, and be qualified on educational work, scientific research work and governmental administration.

According to the systematic education involving general, fundamental and professional knowledges, FSE should:

A1. Let students have humanistic quality, train students to master basic interdisciplinary knowledges in food field and built the required knowledge structure in the FSE area for professionals;

A2. Train students to have sound knowledge base of food science and engineering, awareness of food source character, food storage and processing, productive administration, quality control; Be familiar with the international food industry status and development, and has an overall food science research ability.

A3. Train students to use FSE-related fundamental theory, including food processing and technology, food quality and safety, food nutrition and health, and know-how in solving practical problem, leading to “applied” food talents for social needs;

A4. Train students to have good sense of social responsibility, international view, interpersonal skill, innovation and entrepreneurship, which help to meet the job requirement in the FSE-related field.

A5. Train students with outstanding cooperative spirit and ability.

A6. Train students with mental health and correct values, have ability and habit of self-learning and lifelong learning.
