What is it all about?
Nutrition, health, and the food industry - three growth sectors according to the latest trend analyses. In the Department of Nutritional, Food and Consumer Studies, you receive training in these areas by studying a combination of science and technology and socio-economic subjects. The degree programme enables you to adopt a multifaceted approach to problem-solving - a quality that is in more demand than ever among today's professionals.
The Department team provides practice-orientated training and research through up-to-date, project-based, accredited degree programmes and prepares you fully for a career in tomorrow's professional world. The programme is the only one in Germany which incorporates project-based learning in the first part of the degree programme - and has been doing so successfully for more than 30 years.
Already in the first year, you start to work and learn in groups to carry out study projects. This allows you to acquire valuable 'soft skills' over three semesters, such as the application of theory in practice, the development of team skills, and the further enhancement of organisational and communication skills. This experience gives you a crucial advantage in your future career. Using an interdisciplinary approach, you are encouraged to develop the ability to think and act across disciplines and to be open to life-long learning.
