Department Information
IntroductionThe Undergraduate and Graduate Programs of Nutrition Science were restructured from the Department of Human Development and Family Studies in 2018 with the goal of training students to become eligible as registered dietitians or nutritionists in the fields of enterprise, government, or academia. The program has been currently relocated to the School of Life Science located on NTNU’s Gong-guan campus. With a current total of seven full-time faculty members, the program strives for leadership in the field of nutrition, as well as excellence in nutritional science research. Our professional curriculum includes clinical nutrition, community nutrition, nutrition education and quantity food management. In order to respond to the urgent demands of the development of the food industry and nutrition as a whole, we actively cultivate talent in three career directions: dietitians/nutritionists, food technicians, and scientific researchers.
