Food Science and Nutrition is an integrated study that applies various science disciplines such as chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, microbiology and engineering. It involves an understanding of how diets and nutrition affect the health of individuals, the technologies for creating new food products, and the designing of new processes to improve food quality and safety.

Food Science and Nutrition begins with an understanding of the biological and physical sciences as a basis for understanding the science of food and nutrition and the relationships between nutrition and health. It is a challenging programme for students with an analytical and inquisitive mind interested in applying food science principles to further enhance the health and welfare of mankind.

The Bachelor of Science in Food Science & Nutrition is designed to provide students with practical "hands-on" experience through a comprehensive and practical curriculum of cutting edge research and studies in food science and nutrition. Students will have access to a variety of laboratory equipments here at UCSI University, under the directions and guidance of qualified professors and academicians, as well as experienced lab technologists. The curriculum enables students to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the food manufacturing industries, government agencies, colleges and universities as well as research laboratories. In addition, it also equips them with good interpersonal communication skills and the ability to work in teams, to solve multidisciplinary problems.
Career Opportunities
The food industry is one of the largest manufacturing industries in the world which provides great employment opportunities for food scientists and nutritionists to meet the ever increasing consumer demands for food products that are both nutritious and convenient.

Food scientists are generally involved in the area of research and the development of products and processes, the supervision of food manufacturing processes which include production, quality control, quality assurance and food safety, as well as in food engineering support, marketing and sales, and product support and promotion.

Programme Overview
Architecture is the art of designing the human built environment. Buildings are one of the most visible productions of man, and vary greatly in design, function, and construction implementation across the globe. The visions that Architects conceive are projected onto the society and the built environment in which they practice. These conceptions and ideas will inadvertently have profound effects on the built environment, and consequently on the people who interact with that environment. Architecture is, therefore, an art form, the learning of which requires professional practice, personal artistic development and technical knowledge of building. The constant dialogue between society and the architect is what produces architecture - as a product and as well as a discipline.

The Diploma in Architectural Studies at UCSI University is a 3-year program, designed to provide the necessary technical knowledge and the required practical skill for individuals who wish to join the industry's work force at an early stage. The building industry is in need of competent support groups who are knowledgeable in their field to fill positions as technical draftsperson, CADD draftsperson, site supervisors and material-supplier specialist to name a few. In response to this demand, the Diploma in Architectural Studies at UCSI University offers a well-rounded and integrated range of subjects to prepare graduates to enter the working environment, or to pursue their studies act the higher level of the Architecture Degree programs.

The program also emphasises on the latest industry input for each graduate. Students are required to undergo Industry Experience programme under Co-operative Placement Scheme with a minimum duration of 12 weeks, to learn and familiarize themselves with the working environment of the building and construction industry.

Programme Overview
As life experiences in this modern world assume increasing complexities and the change in social landscape may cause complications and confusion, many turn to the study of Psychology to understand the functional equilibrium between lifestyle, cultures and the human being.

The Psychology degree programme is constructed to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills, which will assist them to achieve healthy adjustments in their social existence and occupational well-being. This degree programme exhibits two major features; namely, a balanced course exposure and three Co-Operative Placements through workplace experience.

Students will be exposed to learning abstract fundamentals in the discipline of Psychology, and also applied Psychology (eg. Industrial & Organizational, Educational, Clinical) to gain a taste of their practical values in social and community services.

This comprehensive training will enable students to derive a rudimentary understanding of the social reality of workplace environments in the larger society outside. Students will develop considerable self-confidence in meeting challenges coming their way upon graduation

Programme Overview
 
The A-Level Academy in UCSI University offers the Cambridge GCE A-Levels that has a well-established reputation for being excellent preparation for university, employment and life. It develops in-depth subject knowledge and understanding for students - which universities and employers heavily emphasise on – and help students gain places at leading universities worldwide. All universities in the United Kingdom and over 450 universities in the United States recognize the Cambridge International AS and A-Levels, including Harvard, Yale, MIT and Stanford.
At UCSI University, we offer the 18-month Cambridge GCE A-Level programme, with examinations scheduled in June and November. Focus is placed on personalised student attention by the A-Levels team of dedicated lecturers. Here, we have an excellent track record of students with a high percentage of A*s and As achieved for each examination.

Over the years, the A-Level Academy has seen many batches of students through with excellent A-Level results. Some have chosen to pursue their degree programmes in top-notch universities worldwide like Imperial College London and Kings College London in the UK, University of Melbourne in Australia and National University of Singapore. Many have also elected to further their studies through the various home-grown degree programmes offered by our own UCSI University, ranging from Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Biotechnology, Food Science, Engineering, Psychology and IT, to name a few.

Countless numbers of our students have obtained full or partial scholarships; for example, the Singapore ASEAN Undergraduate Scholarship, the Wesleyan Asian Freeman Scholarship and JPA scholarships. Our best students have been awarded the Top A-Level Student Award for consecutive years. The fact that UCSI University's A-Level Academy produced more Top 10 Achiever Awards than any other institution in the world in 2010- clinching six awards for physics, five for biology and three for chemistry – makes us tremendously proud of our students' achievements and we look forward to recording more world-class achievements in the A-Level Academy in the years to come.
 
Cambridge GCE A-Levels
 
Cambridge GCE A-Levels is the ‘gold standard' qualification, which is based on rigorous, academic syllabus that optimises the abilities of talented students with a wide range of abilities and stretches the full potential of the most able students.
The Cambridge International AS and A-Levels courses are viewed as equivalent to the AS and A-Levels in the UK, and are accepted for entrance to all UK universities.
The Cambridge GCE A-Level programme follows a ‘staged' assessment, in contrast to the traditional linear A-Levels where all subjects are assessed in a single examination session at the end of the course. Its flexibility enables students to sit for the AS level in one examination and complete the final Cambridge International A-Levels at a subsequent session.
There is also a performance feedback session where students who have completed the AS level will receive valuable feedback on their performance, thus identifying their own strengths and weaknesses that will help them set learning goals for the A2 level.
