Did you know that every 24 hours more than 400 million Cadbury dairy milk buttons are produced?

AND it takes as little as 12 minutes for a potato that has arrived at a PepsiCo factory site to become a bag of crisps!

That's all down to engineering and high end automation within food and drink manufacturing!

That's just some of the things that parents and students learnt when they came to the Sheffield Hallam University Open Days in June to hear first hand from industry food engineers about the new MEng Food Engineering course (

The Open days gave potential students an exclusive insight into what it’s really like to be a food engineer through engineering talks from Mondelez International – makers of Oreo, Cadbury dairy milk and Philadelphia cheese and PepsiCo UK – makers of Walkers crisps and Tropicana juice.

Considering your next steps? Want to know what it’s like being a food engineer and work for some of the UK’s best loved food and drink brands - and be part of creating innovations for the future? Then join us at one of the next Sheffield Hallam Open days on 5th October, 18th October and 2th November 2014.
