EUROPEAN MASTER OF SCIENCE IN FOOD SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY & BUSINESS (BiFTec)
The two-year European Master of Science in Food Science, Technology and Business (BiFTec) is jointly organised by three European partner institutions: KU Leuven, Anhalt University of Applied Sciences (HSA) and Catholic University of Portugal (UCP). It fosters innovation and technology to help you cope with future needs and sustainability within our FOOD4S (“food force”) paradigm: Sustainable Food Systems Science and Engineering. BiFTec adopts a transversal and multidisci - plinary approach to a broad range of topics related to the 4S pillars Science (Food Science & Engineering Technology), Sustainability (Sustainable Food Product & Food Process Design), Safety (Food Safety & Quality), and Simulation (Computational Food Science & Technology). More in-depth courses, a professional competence module and an MSc thesis project allow for specialisation in the domains of Innovative Technology, Energy & Food Chains, Risk & Safety, and Sustainable Food Production & Business. Upon successful graduation, you will receive a joint degree.
BiFTec attracts students from all over the world, which adds a valuable intercultural element to your experience. In addition to positions offered directly by the consortium partners, you will get the opportunity to conduct your professional competence module and/or your master’s thesis research at an associated partner institution or organisation.
Several consortium scholarships will be awarded to top applicants on a competitive basis. The scholarship covers tuition fees, and part of your costs for travelling, housing, and living for the entire duration of the study programme. Next to these full grants, also some fee waiver grants are available for the best ranked runner up candidates.
