Coordinating University:University of Santiago de CompostelagoalsProvide specialized training to graduates of various degrees (engineering related to the primary sector, and other degrees whose academic training corresponds to degrees related to this field: chemistry, veterinary medicine, biology, etc.) in all professional aspects related to engineering of food processing (Food Processing Engineering), from its initial condition as a raw material capable of transforming and / or conditioning to its final destination as a consumer product. Special attention will be paid to the development of new processing technologies and new products, also taking into account other relevant aspects such as sustainability in production, efficient management of natural resources, quality control and product marketing strategies. indicted.
Make it possible to retain talent so that the human capital captured in the master's degree can also be incorporated into research groups of the TERRA Campus (with lines of work related to food production and processing) to start in research tasks that will allow them to complete their training academic and researcher with the obtaining of the corresponding degree of doctorBasic skillsPossess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context
That the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem-solving capacity in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments from information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the latest knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.CurriculumSpecialties or itineraries:

Credit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasThe main professional profile that is intended with the training given in this master's degree is that of a specialist in Food Processing, which represents a very wide range of potential integration in the strategic sectors of our community.The role of this professional profile in the The promotion of innovation, optimization and maintenance of the industrial sector is unquestionable and one can only think of the advantages that the integration of this profile may entail in the numerous food processing industries in Galicia, a key subsector of our economy and one of the greater export projection.
Some of the fields of activity in which future graduates could be integrated are:Transformation processes.
Technical Consulting in quality areas.
Strategy and innovation in products and processes.In addition to all of them, you will also have the professional possibility of developing research (both university and private) and teaching.
