Food Technology Course

In this programme, students acquire expertise regarding the equipment and processes involved in the processing of food, combined with a thorough understanding of the biogenesis of raw materials and their microbiological ecology. They learn to develop appropriate food formulas and processing techniques that allow for product-specific processing conditions in automated production processes using in-line sensor technology. The core of the programme consists of the development of new technologies for the production of food products that meet both consumer expectations and individual nutritional requirements, i.e., the transfer of basic research concepts into new technological approaches.
