As a graduate from the MSc programme in Food Innovation and Health, you can contribute to the development of healthier and tastier foods. You’ll become an expert in gastronomy and technology, linking consumers and the food industry.
The Food Innovation and Health programme at the University of Copenhagen combines knowledge about nutrition, innovation and entrepreneurship with food chemistry, culinary techniques, product development and consumer experience. In this way graduates are enabled to navigate in the cross-field between palatability and health – and to develop new products.
With a degree in Food Innovation and Health, you will be able to work in the food industry or within the public food area, for instance as a product developer or adviser. You can also work with communication, health promotion, management, or research within the food and health sector, teach, or serve as a consultant.
