Master of Science in Food Engineering

Food Engineers manage the entire food and beverage supply chain involving the production, distribution and management applying chemical, physical, mathematical, social sciences and engineering knowledge acquired. The master degree program in Food Engineering at Politecnico di Milano provides students with transversal skills and capabilities for intervening in the food industry transformation technologies, in the analysis and modeling the production systems, including agriculture and consumption, and their effects on the social, economic and environmental dimensions.

Food engineering is substantially linked to processes and products, not only related to transformation technologies for food and beverages production, but also to the product conceptualization and properties’ definition. The professional role of a food engineer is supported with a transversal educational path involving chemical and management engineering skills, also possessing mechanical and energy engineering. Therefore, the food engineer profile completes the basic curriculum of industrial engineering.
