About MFT


Master of Food Technology will be a wide range of the food chain by integrating 3 fields of competency, in order to get the trainees, at the end of their master, able to:

- Characterize and process the food (technology, nutritional and organoleptic properties),

- Secure human health (food safety),

- Get adapted to the systems for quality management (HACCP, GHP, regulations).

For each thematic, classical theoretical and practical courses will be organized. Integrative seminars will also be organized, where interactive discussions between teachers and students will take place about case studies (3 food chain examples will be chosen each year, such as aquaculture products, meat, fruit and vegetable, dairy products, etc.). People from agro-industries will participate to these integrative seminars to witness of their experience and to feed the discussions with cases studies.
