The demand for aquatic food is increasing drastically worldwide and at the same time there is a pressure for more efficient production and distribution systems to deliver healthy and safe food also taking into account the environmental and sustainability issues throughout the entire aquatic food value chain.
Students spend 1 year at DTU/Lyngby Campus, 1 year at another university.
The Aquatic Food Production - Safety & Quality programme is a unique education aimed at the aquatic food sector. The programme enables students to link advanced aquatic food production, processing and distribution with issues of importance for tomorrow's consumers, industry and society.
The Aquatic Food Production - Safety and Quality programme at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) allows you to pursue a career in the aquatic food production – either as professionals in aquaculture production, industrial food production, natural resource management or related to research, teaching and consulting activities.
Graduating the MSc programme with a high grade point average qualifies you for admission to PhD studies—either as an industrial PhD with concurrent employment in a company, or as a regular PhD student.
