This innovative, one-year master's degree includes coursework in dairy chemistry, dairy microbiology, plant management, project management, leadership, sustainability, and other areas critical to effective dairy plant management. Through the use of experiential and project-based learning, students will develop the essential knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the international dairy foods industry. [+]

About the Program The Master of Professional Studies in Dairy Products Technology program trains students with scientific, engineering, food, and agricultural backgrounds for leadership and management roles in the dairy foods manufacturing industry. This innovative, one-year master's degree includes coursework in dairy chemistry, dairy microbiology, plant management, project management, leadership, sustainability, and other areas critical to effective dairy plant management. Through the use of experiential and project-based learning, students will develop the essential knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the international dairy foods industry. Program of Study Graduate students in the MPS in Dairy Products Technology program are required to complete a prescribed course of study designed to give them an understanding of dairy science and manufacturing, industry structure, unit operations, sanitation, quality control, and regulatory requirements. In addition, students will develop the leadership skills and experience needed to manage and guide teams in a dairy processing environment. Three quarters of on-campus course work are followed by a one-quarter internship related to dairy foods manufacturing. To graduate with the MPS in Dairy Products Technology, students must then pass a comprehensive examination. The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Dairy Products Technology program is designed to prepare students with analytical and critical thinking skills for careers in supervision or management at large-scale dairy processing operations. The MPS is not a research program. Many of our students have minimal exposure to dairy science but have exhibited an interest in dairy and have demonstrated management potential. The MPS is a one-year graduate degree program. Our objective is to train managers rather than career scientists. We provide our students with nine months of intensive coursework in dairy science, on campus in San Luis Obispo, and then match students with our industry partners for a three-month paid internship. The MPS is a non-thesis masters degree program. Students must pass an oral examination to graduate. Graduates of the MPS program might begin their careers on the processing floor or within departments such as Research and Development, Sensory Evaluation, or Quality Assurance, but their ultimate roles will likely be supervisory. Employers might rotate our graduates through a variety of departments and business units to help them gain an understanding of the organization as a whole. For graduates of our program, technical skills and knowledge will be important early in their careers, but over time, "people skills" and leadership abilities will play an increasingly important role. If your goal is to develop a career as a scientist focused on research and development, food safety, sensory evaluation, or quality assurance, you might instead consider Cal Poly's excellent MS in Agriculture program with specialization in Dairy Products Technology. The MS is a more traditional research-focused program that culminates with a thesis project. Admission Requirements A Bachelor's degree obtained in a field with substantial analytical and critical thinking, such as an engineering discipline, chemistry, physics, biology, or other scientific or agricultural discipline is preferred. At a minimum, applicants must have completed at least one year each of college-level chemistry and biology. Questions about academic requirements should be directed to Program Manager Tom Johnson at 970-215-3459 or tjohns47@calpoly.edu. Those who do not possess a Bachelor's degree from a postsecondary institution where English is the principal language of instruction must take either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing system (IELTS) exam. The TOEFL must have been taken within the last two years with a minimum score of 550 (paper version), 213 (computerized version), or 80 (internet-based). The minimum score for the IELTS is 6.0. Completed applications must include the following: A formal application made through CSUMentor (online or using a downloaded application form). See the CSUMentor Application Instructions for a detailed guide on how to apply. In addition to your CSUMentor application, you must establish an Interfolio account following this Interfolio Link 30539. Interfolio is the online provider that we use for prospective students to create an ePortfolio. Through Interfolio, upload your unofficial transcripts and self-reported GRE scores. Official transcripts from ALL colleges previously attended (except Cal Poly), should be sent directly from your university to Cal Poly's Admissions Office. Your official GRE scores should be sent to Cal Poly's Admissions office. Scores may also be sent directly to Cal Poly using institution code 4038. A minimum of two letters of recommendation (three are recommended) from faculty members or professional references on institutional/company letterhead, addressed to: Thomas W. Johnson, Program Manager, Master of Professional Studies in Dairy Products Technology, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA 93407-0358. Interfolio will provide instructions to help your references upload their letters of recommendation directly to Interfolio. See the ePortfolio Guidelines document for a detailed walkthrough of the Interfolio application process. International applicants, including anyone who would attend Cal Poly while in the U.S. under a non-immigrant visa, must also submit results of the TOEFL test taken within the past two years. The TOEFL results must be directed to institution code 4038. Go to Cal Poly's TOEFL website for additional TOEFL instructions. Curriculum The MPS in Dairy Products Technology program prepares students for managerial and supervisory roles in the dairy foods manufacturing industry. This one-year program includes training in applications of dairy ingredients, plant operations, manufacturing processes, dairy chemistry, dairy microbiology, sensory evaluation, and other areas critical to the dairy processing sector. In addition, the program emphasizes leadership training through special study and group/team collaboration. Program Learning Objectives Students who successfully complete the twelve-month curriculum and graduate with the degree of Master of Professional Studies in Dairy Products Technology: Have obtained mastery of the technical foundation knowledge necessary to enter a management role in large-scale global dairy foods manufacturing organizations, including: Chemistry, biochemistry and the chemical changes that occur in dairy foods induced by processing Analytical chemistry and instrumentation Microbiology and its roles in both food processing and food safety Dairy foods ingredient functionality Food safety, quality assurance and control Sanitary design and cleaning Raw materials receiving and control Food laws and regulations Food sensory evaluation and process quality Unit operations in dairy food processing Can employ leadership principles and recognize leadership's role in management.

Master in Bioinformatics for Health Sciences The master's programme in Bioinformatics for Health Sciences is designed to provide professionals and researchers with skills and abilities geared towards the development of new computational strategies and IT systems for use in biomedical research. One of the key features of this programme is the large percentage of optional subjects it offers, allowing students to train in a wide range of bioinformatics disciplines. At the same time, it has a clear professional orientation as witnessed by the inclusion of compulsory subjects on the design, management and exploitation of scientific research. Who it is for? The programme is aimed at two types of candidates: holders of degrees in biological and health sciences (biology, medicine, biochemistry, biotechnology, pharmacy, etc.) and holders of engineering degrees or degrees in basic scientific disciplines (chemistry, physics, or mathematics). Candidates must be interested in the development and application of computational tools for use in the field of biomedicine. Structure Students of the master's programme may choose between three different course types: research, academic, and professional. The programme spans a total of two academic years and is taught entirely in English. All first-year subjects are optional with a view to encouraging students to design personalized curricula based on their prior training and future interests by choosing subjects from different fields of bioinformatics (genomic bioinformatics, structural bioinformatics, systems biology, pharmacoinformatics, and medical informatics), as well as among general cross-disciplinary subjects related to algorithms and programming, data management and analysis, and text mining. In the second year, students acquire basic notions of bioethics and data protection applied to bioinformatics, as well as of the design, management and exploitation of scientific research. They also complete a master's degree final project. Content Genome bioinformatics: analysis, alignment, comparison and automatic annotation of biological sequences; analysis of genome evolution and variation; molecular biology databases. Structural bioinformatics: introduction to the experimental methods used in the structural determination of biomolecules, protein structure prediction, and the simulation of biomolecular systems. Systems biology: description of biological networks and gene, protein and metabolic network modelling. Emphasis on both topological aspects of networks and on their dynamic behaviour. Pharmacoinformatics: managing molecular libraries and the virtual screening thereof, computer-aided drug design, and quantitative modelling of structure-activity relationships (QSAR and 3D-QSAR). Biomedical informatics: clinical-health information systems, biomedical image analysis, study of genotype-phenotype relationships, and IT support systems for healthcare decision-making. Internship The internship consists of a supervised placement at a laboratory or company to carry out the final research project for the master's degree. Upon completion of the placement, the student will write a research paper and publicly defend the work he or she has done. Internships are generally carried out at public and private laboratories in the Barcelona area, although students may also choose to do them in other regions or countries. They take place during the second year of the master's programme, span a total of six months, and are full-time (40 hours a week). Career prospects The main career prospects are: Bioinformatics specialist, whether in academic research groups or at hospitals or companies in the biotech, pharmaceutical and bioinformatics industries. Positions at biotech companies in the field of biomedicine. Contract positions at research companies. Drug research and development at public research centres. The master's degree also qualifies holders to pursue the PhD in Biomedicine. Scholarships and grants The master's programme offers one UPF tuition fee scholarship and one grant awarded by the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation.
