Programme structure

Semester 1 – 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.

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.

The track has been prepared so that students, regardless of whether they had previously dealt with the theory and practice of management, were able to explore knowledge and develop skills in this discipline. The three designed modules cover the most crucial areas related to organisation management and the value chain. The first module will even out the level of students’ knowledge of management methods and techniques and will provide opportunity to broaden the knowledge in the area of innovation management and supply chain management. The second module will bring the customers’ perspective to the students, so that the innovations created by them would reflect the needs of their future users and would successfully be commercialized. The third module focuses on managerial skills and a teamwork. This is where the profile of a responsible leader would be shaped; somebody capable of predicting the consequences of his decisions and flexible to find himself in a team work with various personalities.

Semester 3 – Personalised Nutrition and the Consumer – University of Reading
The track will focus on an individual’s nutritional needs and requirements, considering how dietary interventions could be developed, based on knowledge of personalised data, such as phenotype (measurable physical and biological traits, e.g. BMI, cholesterol level) and genotype. The track will be taught from the viewpoint of the scientific evidence basis that links diet to health at a population level as well as an individual basis. It will provide students with an understanding of the physiological, biochemical and molecular genetic basis of chronic non-communicable diseases, such as metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, to provide them with an understanding of topical issues in nutritional sciences and how this relates to the consumer.
