Master's Programme "Food Quality and Safety"
"I chose "Food Quality and Safety" at the University of Bayreuth because the degree addresses the complexities and challenges posed by the food industry from various perspectives. I am pleased with the fact that Kulmbach is a food industry hub with breweries and the reputable Max Rubner Institute. The professors, study service and student support team continuously ensured that each of us felt welcomed and that was the icing on the cake for me."
Helen Regina - Master student "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.
