Food sensory labs

The work undertaken in the food sensory labs at the Centre for Advanced Sensory Science (CASS) keeps us at the forefront of sensory science research. It also provides students studying a food and nutrition science degree with industry-relevant and hands-on skills.

A state-of-the-art testing facility

The sensory evaluations you'll do as part of your degree take place in the food sensory labs at CASS. The facilities include a sample preparation kitchen and 17 self-contained booths for computer data collection.
