If you think food is exciting from a scientific point of view, then this is the programme for you. As an MSc graduate in Food Science and Technology, you will be an expert in the latest technologies and in running the production in a food company.
The programme in Food Science and Technology at University of Copenhagen offers three specialisations: Dairy Science and Technology, Brewing Science and Technology and an Individual specialisation (General Profile), which you compose from out of your interests.
The food industry is one of 'Denmark's most important sectors, and many opportunities exist for food science graduates. Also, increasing technologization has made food production very complex, and there is a growing need for highly qualified graduates who can grasp and apply new technologies.
- You can, for example, work with product development, quality management and company management in food companies.
- You can become involved in developing new and healthy foods or work to prevent undesirable bacteria from entering the products.
- As the programme is taught in English and the food industry is globally oriented, the programme gives you a solid foundation for an international career.
You can read more about career opportunities in connection with the individual specialisations at the programme structure page.
