Could you be a food engineer of the future?

Industry engineers welcomed prospective students to the UK's first MEng Food Engineering degree to give them a taste of working in the food and drink sector.

What better way to learn about careers in food and drink than to hear about it straight from people already within the industry?

That's what people with an interest in food engineering were treated to when they visited the London Science Museum for our 'Food Engineers of the Future' event. With an exciting collection of talks from food and drink engineers, a series of engineering challenges that brought out everyone’s competitive streaks, and having the opportunity to speak to graduates who are working in food and drink following their time at university, the day offered a flavour of what to expect from the industry-supported MEng Food Engineering degree at Sheffield Hallam University.

Attendees received tips and advice from industry mentors while enlisting their help for a fun set of engineering challenges involving food – if you think you could construct a giant tower out of dry spaghetti and marshmallows, you might also be a future food engineer!

If you like the sound of our 'Food Engineers of the Future' event and the MEng Food Engineering degree, be sure to get involved with our upcoming events. Our next stop will be Sheffield Hallam University's Open Days on 12 and 13 June, where those interested in the course will be able to learn everything they need to know about a career in food and drink while hearing from industry experts. We hope to see you there!
