Objectives

The overall objective of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) FIPDes is to provide top-level and up-to-date education that qualifies the graduates to cope with the huge challenges in the sector of food innovation along with product design and packaging.

  • FIPDes qualifies you to contribute to the development of innovative, sustainable and healthy food products.
  • FIPDes puts you in a truly international environment with students from all over the world.
  • FIPDes invovles you in exiting projects with international industrial and academic partners.
  • FIPDes gives you the skills, experience and networks to cope with the huge challenges in the sector of food innovation along with product design and packaging.

Food innovation comprises “functionalization” in order to endow products with specific health-enhancing properties, calling upon new processing techniques and packaging decisions.

Young people interested in the field of food product design need a tailored programme merging food science and technology, managerial and consumer science as well as health and sustainability issues. The EMJMD - FIPDes has been developed to match these needs.

The EMJMD in Food Innovation and Product Design is scheduled over two academic years.
FIPDes has been developed to train students who wish to contribute to the development of innovative, sustainable and healthy food products.

Successful FIPDes students will obtain a double or triple degree (according to their study track), i.e. National Master Degree certificates with a Joint Diploma Supplement from the highly renowned European Partner Universities and a FIPDes diploma which encapsulate the jointness of the programme by including the logo of each FIPDes institution as well as the signature of their representative.
