Plant based foods.

Globally, there is increasing awareness of the need to produce foods in a more sustainable way as part of a sustainable food system. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by increasing our consumption of plant-based foods.

In addition, we need to reduce our use of resources and minimise raw material waste. To be successful, we must focus on producing plant-based foods that are nutritious, healthy, safe, and full of flavour.

Academic Focus

During the specialisation in plant-based foods you learn:

Furthermore, you will gain a deep insight into the interplay between safe foods and sustainable food production.

Teaching is done by leading researchers from the University of Copenhagen and from the food industry. Lectures are combined with laboratory work, which is sometimes scaled up to pilot plant production.

Many courses are compulsory, but there are also elective courses worth 15-30 ECTS in total, allowing you to customise your education by selecting e.g., courses in gastronomy, advanced spectroscopy, or physical/chemical changes during storage.

You can write your thesis in collaboration with a company. Graduates with a specialisation in plant-based foods are awarded an MSc in Food Science & Technology .

The specialisation in Plant Based Foods can be structured in four different ways, depending on the size of your thesis and whether you start in September or February.

Programme Overview, Study Start in September, Thesis 30 ECTS

Compulsory courses: 60 ECTS Elective courses: 30 ECTS Master's thesis: 30 ECTS

Dairy products have a high nutritional value, and milk contains many unique chemical compounds, which can be used to add taste or structure to foods. Also, in the future dairy products will be important to a growing global population. The specialisation in Dairy Science and Technology will provide you with the opportunity to work in a key position in production, innovation, or technical consultancy.

You learn about process technologies that convert raw milk into a variety of products. You'll get an understanding of the whole production chain and in-depth knowledge of how the individual processes in the dairy affect the product and quality of the product.

Biotechnology is another important teaching area within dairy technology. It focuses on the use of starter cultures and enzymes to create the right products with minimal use of resources. You will get an insight into the underlying chemistry and a deep understanding of the fermentation of foods. The programme also focuses on providing an in-depth insight into the formulation and production of dairy products, including the use of ingredients to achieve the right quality.

You will be taught by leading scientists from the University of Copenhagen and from the industry. Lectures and laboratory work are supplemented by pilot-scale practical experiments. There are several excursions and company visits.

Danish dairies are very committed to the programme, and have, among other things, appointed a contact committee with industry representatives to ensure that the programme is solidly anchored in a practical, industrial reality and maintains a high academic level.

Most of the courses are compulsory, but you also follow elective courses. As you can choose elective courses worth 15 ECTS, you have the possibility of giving your education a personal touch by choosing courses in gastronomy, advanced spectroscopy, or physical/chemical changes during storage.

Almost all students carry out their thesis in close collaboration with a company, thereby ensuring that the cases you will be working on are relevant to the dairy industry.

Examples of theses:

Dairy Internship

It is mandatory to have an extra six-month internship to emphasise the importance of practising your knowledge.

The internship is a combination of theoretical teaching at the University of Copenhagen and Kold College, as well as a 14-week internship at two different companies.
