Nutrition and dietetics at Newcastle uni
Universities: Posted 26-7-12 Deadline - No Deadline
A $400,000 refurbishment of a food science laboratory at the University of Newcastle is complete, offering students a first-class training facility that mimics the professional environment of an industrial kitchen. The purpose-built laboratory, officially opened last month, gives students from the University’s Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics program access to a professional space to hone their practical skills in food experimentation, preparation, and menu management. Program convenor, Dr Lesley MacDonald-Wicks, said the laboratory’s substantial refit and technology update allowed students to develop their skills by learning in a practical environment.“We have tried to mimic as best we can an industrial kitchen to improve the student experience and train competent, career-ready graduates,” Dr MacDonald-Wicks said.“Students build up their awareness of foods and their nutritional components, including ways to combine foods effectively when preparing menus. Through practical exposure and guided activities, students are encouraged to experiment with menu management and gain an understanding of the importance of recipe modification for people with special dietary requirements.”
