The University of Lincoln is launching a new MSc in Agri-Food Technology with a first intake of students in September 2017.
This new postgraduate programme is designed to educate a new generation of farmers, innovators, technicians, and business leaders by combining the management, science and technology associated with the modern food supply chain “from farm to fork”.
Through its Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology (LIAT), the University of Lincoln is working to tackle strategic challenges facing UK agriculture and food manufacturing, developing new practices and technologies that can improve efficiency, sustainability, and reduce waste throughout the value chain.
The MSc in Agri-Food Technology is dedicated to developing the future workforce of the UK’s successful and growing agri-food sector, preparing students for a wide variety of roles, from production management positions to research and development posts.
Students can benefit from the expertise of academic staff within the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology, which draws together specialisms from across the University’s College of Science, as well as specialist facilities at the University’s Brayford Pool Campus in central Lincoln, Riseholme Campus north of the city, and National Centre for Food Manufacturing at Holbeach in southern Lincolnshire.
