In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

When studying biological & life sciences, students learn different characteristics of natural science. Depending on the area of focus, students may study the human body, plant biology, or animal science in order to help with real-world problems.

The Republic of Lithuania is the official name of the country. It is found in Northern part of Europe. Lithuania appreciates science and technology in their education system highly. It has the basic aspects of primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education. Lithuania is another leading country in the provision of arts, science, engineering as well as technological courses. Lithuania has faced several challenges in higher education the last years that led to the creation of 20 universities to enhance its accessibility.

Best Masters in Biological & Life Sciences in Lithuania 2017. Food Science and Safety Master of Science in Technologies This programme is designed for preparation of wide profile food science specialists both for food industry and the companies performing research of food products and development of new products enriched by advanced natural antioxidants, antimicrobial substances, rheological characteristics and texture of various components. The first and most modern in Lithuania Food Science and Technology Competence Centre facilitates students’ research and applied competences using four unique semi-industrial lines of food technologies (bread, beer, meat, fish, dairy products). The Master + model offers either to masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasising managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career. Top reasons to study @KTU Why KTU? Why Lithuania? Course outline More information about programme ktu.edu/m/food-science-and-safety Academic mobility & internship opportunities KTU students are encouraged to use academic mobility programme among which Erasmus+ is the most popular. More than 350 Erasmus+ and 100 other bilateral agreements are made for student exchange, and the students may spend 1 semester in a partner university of KTU and gain credits which are transferred into their study plan. Just few universities-partners of the programme are Mendel University in Brno (Czech Republic), University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria), Technical University of Denmark (Denmark); Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain), University of Angers (France). Internship (studies practice) can be performed additionally to study plan (in summer between the 1st and 2nd year or as a part of Research projects). The students of this programme may perform internship in Lithuania or abroad using Erasmus+, IAESTE, AIESEC, ISIEC, P4V, etc. academic mobility programmes and designated scholarship. Graduates’ internships are offered as well. The main business partners of the programme are the leaders in food industry in the country: Vičiūnai group, AB Kauno grūdai, AB Žemaitijos pienas, AB Švyturys - Utenos Alus, AB Volfas Engelman, UAB ICECO etc. Graduate careers Graduates of Food Science and Safety are easily employed by the companies of food industry or the institutions related to research of food products. Employers value the programme's graduates, because they are able to rapidly find solutions to the problems arising during production and product control. Advice of a student/graduate "Unequivocally, Food Science and Safety study programme was the right choice for me. This study programme provided exclusive chemical knowledge of the components of food products, their characteristics and changes during processing. All material acquired during the lectures and collected library is applied in daily production context. It should be mentioned, that this study programme involves lectures of food safety and quality systems, which we successfully ("by the book") introduced in our new production. Knowledge, acquired during Master degree studies, learned correct work principles and consolidated ability to make conclusions and summarize the achieved results contributed to rapid and successful employment at the successful company of food industry." –, AB Amilina (Roquette group), Senior Technologist Ignas Mackėla Application and admission requirements Academic Requirements Applications are submitted online on http://apply.ktu.edu and all requested documents must be uploaded onto the electronic application form.
