There is a professional idiom that describes the nature of Food Science: studying food “from field to fork”. With a Master in Food Sciences, you will indeed study all aspects of food, from harvesting and producing to cooking and consumption.

The field of Food Sciences has developed immensely over the last years, and today, a Master in Food Sciences is a highly interdisciplinary applied science that uses achievements of different fields, such as chemical engineering, microbiology, biochemistry, and many others. This is the reason for a considerable number of sub-disciplines that this field of science includes. Some of the most exciting and advanced sub-disciplines that you can explore with a Master in Food Sciences are food chemistry and analysis, food preservation and packaging, food technology, and many others. All these studies try to raise the quality of food. At the same time they provide information for safety and ways to produce food that meet the requirements of the overpopulated and overstimulated modern world. Food science is not only about cooking; it is also about some hard scientific research, real challenges, and unraveling riddles.
