Master in Food Systems

The flagship Master in Food Systems programme is EIT Food's unique offering to develop top talent for the food sector. The programme is based on a combination of essential skills to become effective innovators and entrepreneurs in the food sector along with key technical skills that are tailored to the individual career pathway for each student. The approach of the programme is unique in how students can select study pathways from a wide range of profiles at different European Universities to suit their career ambitions. The programme will start in September 2019.


The integrated Master in Food Systems will equip a new generation of top talent with the skills, competences and knowledge to become innovators and entrepreneurs in the Food sector. The Master degree will provide a best in class, innovative educational programme that overcomes a number of challenges in the sector - the collaboration of industry in the development and execution of the programme ensures key employability criteria are secured and students have access to resources and insights from industrial partners and entrepreneurial ventures alike. With geographic and organisational mobility as a core feature, students will study at three different universities and be exposed to a range of organisational settings to enhance their understanding of the food sector. Sustainability is built in through a focus on systems thinking to expose current and future challenges and to inspire highly creative solutions.


For the first student intake in fall 2019, six academic partners (University of Hohenheim, University of Turin, University of Warsaw, Autonomous University of Madrid, Queen's University of Belfast & University of Reading) will offer individually profiled semester tracks. Click here for more information about the programme.
