Food quality analysis is different from the analysis of 'normal' products. Food, food products, flowers, cattle and crops are living matter that changes continuously over time due to (bio) chemical, physical and microbiological influences.
The main consequence of this results in an enormous variation of complex interdependencies. Hence, the importance of the technological knowledge is highlighted. Technological domains, such as microbiology, chemistry, process technology, physics, human nutrition, plant science and animal science, are necessary for understanding this complexity and for its proper control. On the other hand, many human activities and decisions are key factors in the production chain.
The Food Quality Management Master of Science study programme offers an integrated approach to the study and assessment of quality processes in the agrifood chain through an exclusively developed techno-managerial approach. The whole supply chain is studied from the primary sector to the final consumer. Food, flowers and cattle are also discussed. This two-year MSc gives you the chance to analyse problems using both the social and life sciences. This allows you a higher level of approach on the topics of food quality, quality management, quality design, quality control, quality improvement, quality assurance, quality policy and business strategy.
