The European Master in Sustainable Food Systems Engineering, Technology and Business (Ghent et al) is a conjoint programme run by four European partners: KU Leuven (coordinator), Anhalt University of Applied Sciences (UAnhalt), Catholic University of Portugal (UCP) and University College Dublin (UCD). Upon successful graduation, you will receive a joint master’s degree.
BiFTec-FOOD4S offers an education which is at the same time broad and in-depth. The programme aims to develop and foster knowledge and awareness of scientific trends in food science, safety and quality, food product, process design and sustainable production, computational methods and risk analysis within a global context, as well as to identify key concerns about ecological and community issues relating to food systems and their production.
The course seeks to expand the scope of theoretical research and policy debates over sustainable agriculture and food production. It offers a better understanding of food systems and ecological dynamics and offers strategies in terms of regenerating natural systems. Understanding and development of key issues in food legislation and regulations and application of quality management systems in the supply chain are integral components of the course. The focus on social concerns arising from food production, marketing, economics and consumption practices are addressed in an international context.
The programme prepares competent employees for varied sectors of work including food production, food processing, agribusiness, and positions at educational institutions, government departments and private companies.
You will be highly skilled and prepared for work at the highest professional level, able to solve problems and to present research.
