The B-Tech (Honours) Degree in Food Science and Technology
The B-Tech (Honours) Degree in Food Science and Technology was launched at Masvingo Polytechnic in 2005. This was a result of a Presidential directive through the proclamation of the ten point plan to turn around the economy through import substitution. The programme is run in collaboration with Department of Applied Biology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Applied Sciences at The National University of Science and Technology.
The first group of 18 students was recruited in April 2005 and 15 of these graduated in November 2009 at the National University of Science and Technology. The programme prepares graduates for employment in the food industry. The programme is currently being run on a block release basis to carter for those students who are already working in different companies nationwide and abroad.
