This Master’s Degree in mechanical engineering was created to assimilate the peculiarities of the food sector, specifically for the food industry to put together aspects of many different disciplines. Rarely can these peculiarities be found together within any of the currently available mechanical engineering courses.
Technological developments within the food industry make it necessary for Food producers and Plant engineering companies to organize specialized training courses or propose Master’s courses to cover lackings within the sectors of technology, microbiology and food chemistry.
This course offers the chance to gain a global vision of the food industry and will allow graduates to find positions right in the heartlands of this sector. The majority of graduates find work within a year of completing this course.
