BSc (Hons) Food Technology Coming from a farming background I was keen to study how basic commodities produced on the farm are turned into valuable food products. Loughry has a great reputation, offering a wide range of courses from post GCSE to degree and masters level. When I graduate, I would like to work in the food packaging industry, particularly in research and development. I had a brilliant work placement in Delta Print and Packaging, where I was exposed to a wide range of commercial challenges. I learnt about the reality of the work place, working under pressure, dealing with a different companies and crisis management. Choosing to do a placement year helped to build my confidence and gave me an understanding of the world of work which is very different from college life.
