Programme structure

Semester 1 – Food safety of the whole value chain – University of Torino
The main subjects covered in the track will be the food safety of the whole chain from production to consumption, with insights of foodborne pathogens physiology and virulence, food toxicology, food safety management systems. Problem solving exercise will be carried out in the field of food safety.

Semester 2 – AgriFood Science and Engineering – University of Hohenheim
This track will cover the “front” end of the food system namely primary production principles as well as conversion and processing to value added ingredients and innovative food products. Some knowledge on use of byproduct streams will be provided. With primary production, a focus will be on agricultural technologies as well as some plant sciences. Two new introductory modules – AgFoodTech 1 and 2 will provide students with an introduction and overview to the specific track.

Semester 3 – Food integrity of the supply chains. Applied and advanced systems for food control – Queen’s University of Belfast
This track will cover from the environment to the consumer with an emphasis on incorporating new innovations with emerging technologies and how to design those get approval and acceptance for implementation.
