What is a Master in Food Technology? This degree provides an understanding of the research and development involved in food production. Drawing from chemistry and microbiology, students can learn the fundamentals of food properties and the technology used to realize and perfect them, then move on to designing and innovating food solutions. This includes ensuring food quality and safety, as well as comprehension of environmental and social issues involved.

Students on the path to a Master in Food Technology may build planning and problem-solving skills that can be applied elsewhere in life. They also typically develop an understanding of research and development processes, along with a broader view of the impacts of the food industry and how to make sound assessments of these impacts.

The tuition costs for a Master in Food Technology vary from one institution to another, and the program generally takes two years to complete. Students should research prospective schools to find more information on these costs.

Food technologists are always in demand, so the recognition that comes with a Master in Food Technology paves the way to various potential careers. Many graduates find work at food manufacturing companies, from developing and overseeing manufacturing processes to working as quality control inspectors and safety testers for products. Graduates may also work as food scientists at research institutes dedicated to conducting studies and testing new technologies for processing and preserving food.

Various programs for obtaining a Master in Food Technology can be found worldwide. Online programs offer an advantage for students who need a flexible schedule or live in remote areas.

The food sector is essential to ensure the quality and development of society. Despite the recent food systems developments, nowadays great challenges are approaching. Examples of these are the 2030 Agenda, issued by the UN with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since developments and sustainability are currently on a collision route, and the COVID-19 pandemic. By 2050, the world will need 60 percent more food, and with the drop in productivity levels, it is unlikely that this goal will be achieved, at least if there is no change to the current food system. In this sense, it is necessary to create development and innovation strategies to increase agricultural and food production sustainably, improve global supply chains, decrease food losses and wastes, decrease environmental impact, save energy and ensure safe and nutritious food for all. -

Food is fundamentally different from other goods: It consists of (parts of) organisms that were alive or still are. In addition to the higher complexity of its composition and the variation in its starting materials, this results in a greater risk of variability during production, transport, and storage. How do we supply as many people as possible in the most sustainable ways with high-quality, healthy food? You will deal with this and similar questions in the master’s programme "Food Quality and Safety". -
