The flagship of the centre is the newly built Food Industry Centre, which boasts food processing facilities, test and development kitchens, a sensory evaluation suite and training facilities for food scientists, dietitians and nutritionists alike. Dietitians and Public Health Nutritionists in particular benefit from the opportunity to develop practical food skills such as estimation of portion size and nutrient content of typical foods in the specially designed practice kitchens.

Other science laboratories, including microbiology and chemical analysis facilities and the sports physiology laboratory are equipped with a wide range of analytical equipment, which allows you to master a number of techniques for research purposes or in readiness for employment.
