Why in Parma?

The livestock, food and cultural heritage of our territory should be protected through the training of highly specialized and motivated technicians who combine tradition and innovation, science and culture, technology and dairy enterprise management. The breadth of the training in Dairy Enterprise Technology and Management (TeGIC) is fostered by the contribution of professors from two different universities, and by lengthy internships in companies, industries, professional firms and/or public or private administrations, allowing students to acquire practical skills that are fundamental for the profession.

The course curriculum provides basic skills in the technical and scientific disciplines crucial to the industry, such as chemistry, business economics and management, general animal husbandry and genetic improvement, and animal nutrition and feeding. These will be complemented by in-depth skills in primary production, milk quality and evaluation criteria, cheesemaking processes, production technologies of other important by-products, machinery and equipment. Great emphasis will be placed on the environmental sustainability of dairy production. This knowledge will be complemented by sound training in law and economics, supporting rational management of the dairy enterprise.

The course is run collaboratively by the University of Parma (administrative hub) and the University of Milan, with the cooperation of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and CREA - Council for Agricultural Research and Analysis of Agricultural Economics.



Not mandatory except for laboratory activities.

After graduation

The in-company internships in the second and third years enable students to connect with the world of work and apply the technical and scientific knowledge acquired in terms of milk management, plant engineering, sanitation, food safety, food legislation and the application of businesses' control plans and logistics. The vocational activity will help graduates in "Dairy Enterprise Technology and Management" finding employment in private companies dedicated to the processing of milk into cheeses and derivatives, in laboratories and control facilities, or to pursue freelance activities as business consultants.

The TeGiC graduate can fulfill the positions of Responsible for process control in the dairy industry, Consultant in the purchase of raw materials in the dairy supply chain, Responsible for quality control in the dairy supply chain, Responsible for milk and dairy analysis laboratories, Specialist in the quality assessment of milk, Analyst of market and economic data of dairy enterprises, Consultant in the marketing of the processed product.

At the end of the training graduates will be qualified to join the National College of Agrotechnicians and Agrotechnicians Laureates.
However, there will be no immediate transfer to a different degree programme and no continuance to a second-cycle degree will be allowed, in accordance with the current regulation.
