Food and Microstructure Engineering

The University of Birmingham has significant expertise in the development, formulation, and application of novel food and beverage technologies and strategy. Our interdisciplinary approach to research, both in terms of science and policy, enables organisations collaborating with the University to benefit from the latest technological developments.

The design of food processes and microstructure is a major research area in the School of Chemical Engineering. We carry out research that provides underpinning support to the food industry – driving innovation forward into new areas demanded by both consumers and policy makers.
