Chloe Walker, budding nutritionist, plans to use the knowledge she acquires in RMIT's Bachelor of Science (Food Technology and Nutrition) to help people live healthy lives through the food they eat.
Bachelor of Science (Food Technology and Nutrition)
This program prepares you to work hands-on in the food business. To people who are considering this degree I would say, 'Be prepared to completely change the way you think about food and what we eat!'
I was attracted to food technology and nutrition because I love food! So I started looking at programs that were available.
RMIT’s degree appealed because it’s a very specific, science-based course on food nutrition and production. It offers insights into many different areas relating to the food industry.
We learn about the manufacturing processes that drive production. A key focus is food nutrition and it has been really interesting to look at the techniques that apply to diets and dietary requirements from a nutrition perspective. The practical sessions give us the opportunity to apply what we are taught.
Nutrition and applied nutrition have been my favourite subjects. People don’t always have the time or the knowledge needed to make informed decisions on food’s nutritional qualities. It’s been fascinating to learn about different food types, and explore their elements and values.
Doing this course prepares you to work hands-on in the food business: it teaches everything there is to know about the industry. To people who are considering this degree I would say, “Be prepared to completely change the way you think about food and what we eat!”
After graduation my plan is to undertake some internships, travel, and find my perfect food role. My dream is to become a nutritionist.
I am happy, smiley and easy-going!
I love what I do because it means I can help people to live a healthier, more positive lifestyle through what they eat.
