Food can be tempting, so can its study!

MAHE Dubai has the ideal course for you – B.Sc. in Food and Nutrition.

Good food is something only a few of us can resist. But what makes ‘good food’, good? And what makes it nutritious? The study of food and nutrition is an exciting field that is getting its deserved due. The idea is to dive deep into the science of food, nutrition and make an impact in the world, through your learning.

The statistics on the food industry are attractive. The UAE’s food and beverage sector alone, will need to be more than 4 times in size over the next five years to meet demand for hotel and retail projects currently under development in Dubai. About 19,000 more F & B outlets are expected in the UAE by 2019. And if you extrapolate it to the world, it is indeed a lot of food for thought!
