David O Keefe tells us how BSc (Hons) in Food Science & Innovation was the perfect continuation from his level 7 degree in Food Science with Business
"Food Science with Business provided the perfect stepping stone to the level 8 programme, Food Science & Innovation. Lecturers provided invaluable help on a one to one basis which gives the student a more in-depth understanding of the course material.
Each module was tied together perfectly with knowledge from one module being applicable in another module.
The skills which were obtained in Food Science & Innovation gave me the confidence to apply for an internship as assistant winemaker in the US.
Studying at the Moorepark Research Centre was really beneficial and gave a flavour of the cutting edge research in food process technology and research.
With great friends and constantly available support from my course leader and lecturers at WIT, Food Science & Innovation was a joy to be a part of and I can see myself in a management role and progressing to Masters/PhD level."
