Food technology is an innovative, exciting, and highly interdisciplinary field of study; meeting the challenges related to global market requirements, changing consumer demands, sustainability, social responsibility, and competitiveness requires knowledge in a wide range of areas.

Food Technology at DTU is thus an interdisciplinary study programme involving different departments and disciplines, including microbiology, biochemistry, physics, chemical engineering, and engineering.

The Food Technology programme aims to provide you with profound analytical, design, and development skills in terms of technologies and processes related to modern production of healthy, safe food.

The programme covers a wide range of courses in technical fields of activity, food science, management, and communication. In addition, the food industry and other external stakeholders also play an active role on the programme, allowing you to work with highly relevant, real-life issues and projects.

Your choice of courses in your individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme by choosing from the wide range of courses.

Experience shows, however, that students tend to choose specialization courses with focus on either food production or food safety.

“What makes your studies unique at DTU is the possibility of proposing or taking part in special courses. These courses can be worth up to 30 ECTs and vary from internships and projects with industry or working on academic projects with world class institutes in DTU. They are a fantastic way to make contacts within industry or for practice in academic writing before your thesis.”
