Master's Programme "Food Quality and Safety"

An integrated vision of nutrition.

The food industry is a highly complex environment. Besides the overwhelming variety of ingredients they contain, our food products are produced, traded, and processed globally. Quality assurance and quality enhancement must come to terms with this complexity, as must the legal frame work, and new technical innovations. Unique in Germany, The "Food Quality and Safety" master's degree course at the University of Bayreuth addresses some of the greatest challenges of the 21st century: the sustainable production and distribution of healthy food of the highest possible quality, feeding a steadily growing world population, and optimizing existing supply chains while developing new ones. Complex problems require interdisciplinary solutions. This is where the scientific, legal, and economic skills you will acquire, thanks to this programme's interdisciplinary scope, will come to the fore.

Be part of it and apply for our master's programme! We are looking forward to receiving your application!
