ECU Nutrition students have access to a range of specialised facilities. Our Nutrition Food laboratory is designed for students to work on practical projects involving food. The multi-functional laboratory has a food demonstration and teaching area, computing stations for dietary analysis and diet development and individual or group work areas for food preparation, cooking and tasting and food analysis. The Nutritional Assessment laboratory provides a range of equipment for teaching and learning for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, including anthropometric equipment for nutrition assessments. It reflects a realistic hospital setting with equipment for measuring body composition and metabolic rate and analysing blood samples, and is fully functional for dietary and physical assessments.
