We want you to share our enthusiasm.

Food is an absolutely central part of our society. It has technological, economic and nutritional aspects, but also social and ethical ones, all of which flow into our education and training.

We want you to share our enthusiasm for these issues.

The Department of Food Technology has made it its goal to train engineers for the field who have broadly based expertise and skills in food production and process and product development. That also includes being equipped to deal with food-related issues in the market economy, legislation and sales and marketing.

Food technologists work in many different fields.

That is why we want to offer our students a broad basis for their education and training. Our training concept is not product-focused but extends from animal and plant-based foods through to cosmetic and pharmacological applications. We offer a Bachelor’s degree programme in Food Technology and one in Industrial Engineering.

In addition to the Bachelor’s qualifications, you have the option of taking our research-oriented Master of Food Processing, also available as a part-time programme, and continuing your education to doctoral level in the Department.

The global orientation of the training we offer in the Department is reflected in a Bachelor’s degree that incorporates a year abroad and in doctoral programmes.

The Department always endeavours through high research activity to establish ties with the food-producing industry, research institutions and higher education partners, which creates many points of reference and contact for our students as they write their final dissertations and take the first step into professional life.
