Integrated Food Project
This course follows a product development project through the phases of planning, literature search, laboratory and pilot plant work, evaluation and reporting. The project integrates the diverse skills that students have accumulated in previous training while developing capabilities in multivariate analysis, experiment design and sensory analysis. Students will visit various industry locations during this course to better understand the real-world applications of this training. Throughout the project, they will work closely with entrepreneurs from small and medium sized companies.
At the end of this course, the student will have:
- Obtained knowledge in food engineering and technology through participation in a food development project
- Learned to work in a self-steering project group
- Gained understanding of the methodology and necessary trade-offs in food product development
In addition to the Integrated Food Project course, a Sustainability Workshop is offered to our students. This full day programme is hosted by Tetra Pak and supported by experts from Lund University, Tetra Pak and alternating experts from other companies in the European Master’s partnerships.
