FDF Taste Success has been on a UK tour recently to come and meet those of you who are interested in careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and tell you why Food Engineering is the profession for you!

Having set up camp at the Big Bang Fair South West at Exeter University and the Big Bang Fair North West in Liverpool, we've showcased the many amazing reasons why food and drink is the best industry you can choose to work in. Why? Well, in addition to being the UK's largest manufacturing sector that currently has thousands of job openings at all levels, food and drink is one of the happiest and tastiest places to be! Just see what people already in it are saying.

If you're convinced and want to go to Uni but not quite sure start, take a closer look at the BEng and MEng Food Engineering degrees (more information here: http://bit.ly/foodengineering ) at Sheffield Hallam University, there is still time to find out more and apply for this September. The courses aresupported by over 40 of the UK's biggest food and drink companies.

As well as gaining first-hand experience from a course tailored by those within the industry, by enrolling on the course you'll be guaranteed 56 weeks' worth of work placements at supporting companies, as well as be eligible for a £2,500 bursary towards your studies.

If you didn't manage to make it to the regional Big Bang Fairs, don't worry! Taste Success will be appearing at Skills London in November. We hope to see you there!
