Department of Health Food

Department of Health Food
(Undergraduate & graduate programs)

We provide students with excellent software and hardware in learning and in the practice environment. Our curriculum emphasizes both a theoretical foundation and practical applications. In addition, we cooperate with the health food industries to increase the employment competitiveness of our students. In the near future, we expect our role as an important research center in Taiwan to become even stronger.

Aim of the department:

1. Cultivate our students to have professional knowledge in dietary nutrition.
2. Train our students to have the specialized skill in the development and manufacture the health food.

Curriculum Design

1. Basic Courses
Two directions: (1) Dietary Nutrition, and (2) The development and manufacture of health food.
2. Courses Related to Certification
Courses related to certification offered by the department: Food technician, Chinese Cooking, Baking and Bartending certifications. In cooperation with the establishment of testing centers for Food Testing Analysis Grade B and Grade C. Students can use the standard testing place in our department to train the acquiring skills to pass the certification exam.
3. Professional Ability Curriculum
(1) Group dietary nutrition Course Module: Nutrition Professional Courses and association meals design and management Courses.
(2)Development and manufacture health food Course Module: Food biotechnology, marketing, phytochemical analysis, enzymology, food microorganism, production mushroom technology, etc.
