Celia King is pursuing her dream of developing food products that make a difference to people’s lives. RMIT’s Bachelor of Science (Food Technology and Nutrition) is helping bring the dream to life.
Bachelor of Science (Food Technology and Nutrition)
My RMIT experience and contacts have helped me combine studies with working one or two days a week in industry, developing new products and maintaining quality standards, putting my knowledge into action.
I love food and I love science. Transforming chemistry into real world applications intrigues me.
RMIT’s Food Technology and Nutrition program is a specialised degree. The practical work and hands-on time in the lab has cemented so many concepts. In the final year industry experts come in to teach, assess and evaluate us.
What I’ve learnt translates directly into the food industry. The exposure to technical knowledge, documentation and research has been great. The Product Development and Confectionery courses have been a highlight.
I spent a placement in Tasmania doing research at a state of the art facility that manufactures long shelf life foods. My project related to packaging properties, an important area of food manufacturing. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Food Science is so rewarding, with many pathways into a variety of roles and careers. I have been awarded prizes for academic achievement and also the Simplot Scholarship.

I’d love to work in product development and confectionery, in large scale manufacturing. My dream is to develop products that influence consumer choices.
I am passionate, focused and ambitious!
I love what I do because you’re making a difference. Whether it’s maintaining food quality and safety, developing new products for people to enjoy, or making a favourite even better!
