Program Overview

Program Description:
To fulfil its nutritional destiny, food must be both safely produced and safely delivered to its end consumer. This requires, on the one hand, processing technologies for converting edible raw materials into foods with decreased inherent stability, and, on the other, preservation technologies for increasing the stability and shelf life of foods. Based on these considerations, the Interuniversity Programme in Food Technology (IUPFOOD) focuses on two technological dimensions of prime and crucial importance in food processing and preservation: - the transformation (processing) of raw materials into products suited for human consumption, and - the role of postharvest and food preservation unit operations in delivering safe and nutritious foods to the end consumer. These two concerns are directly translated in the focus points of the IUPFOOD programme. This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
