Sustainable Food Management

My Studies



Our Institute provides our students with state-of-the-art-labs in addition to lecture rooms, project rooms and computer labs featuring cutting-edge equipment.

The Sustainable Food Management programme is organised around the Food Processing Lab, where you are taught in a hands-on manner, and where students are offered the opportunity to create sustainable products and processes in projects and Bachelor’s theses. Current research topics at the lab are incorporated into teaching practice.

The Food Processing Lab covers the following areas of activity:

Processes for producing food are researched and developed in the food pilot plant.

The analytics lab is dedicated to the analysis of food ingredients.

The chemistry, physics and microbiology lab focuses on key topics of food production.

The product development lab is used to test methods for the processing of primary products and food production.

The Food Processing Lab also has small-scale brewing facilities and fermentation tanks for experimenting with different ingredients and yeast strains. More information about our premises and equipment, as well as a virtual tour, can be found here.
