About this program

Master's Program in Food Technology and Nutrition

This programme is aimed at students who want to create innovative future foods and find solutions to health issues such as obesity or malnutrition. Students learn about the design and production of foods while preserving health benefits within food chemistry, food processing, surface and colloid chemistry, microbiology, nutrition, and food analysis. While aligning to market needs through a strong emphasis on engineering sciences and innovation, the programme uses links to local industry, which means some researchers have converted results into successful enterprises, such as Oatly, Optifreeze and Probi. Graduates have found jobs within the food industry, the public sector, at research institutes and PhD positions.
