Food technology is an innovative, exciting, and highly interdisciplinary field of study; meeting the challenges related to global market requirements, changing consumer demands, sustainability, social responsibility, and competitiveness requires knowledge in a wide range of areas.
Food Technology at DTU is thus an interdisciplinary study programme involving different departments and disciplines, including microbiology, biochemistry, physics, chemical engineering, and engineering.
The Food Technology programme aims to provide you with profound analytical, design, and development skills in terms of technologies and processes related to modern production of healthy, safe food.
The programme covers a wide range of courses in technical fields of activity, food science, management, and communication. In addition, the food industry and other external stakeholders also play an active role on the programme, allowing you to work with highly relevant, real-life issues and projects.
You will have the opportunity to work in close collaboration with both Danish and international companies - either as part of the courses, as an individual project or while writing your thesis.
The MSc is a two-year graduate programme with a workload of 120 ECTS credit points.
