The overall objective of the Joint European Master 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.
Students chosen special mobility track:
The official language of the FIPDES course is English with ample opportunities to learn the local language and culture. In France some standard modules shared with national courses are in French.
FIPDes adopts a holistic and cross-disciplinary approach to food innovation: from concept through prototypes to consumption, from raw materials to packaged goods. Scientific, technical, entrepreneurial and culinary knowledge is applied at many scales, from the research labs to the pilot plants.
First year: modules, projects and summer school in France and Ireland + Summer Internships Worldwide
Students attend courses in Paris (France) and Dublin (Ireland)
They acquire cutting-edge knowledge in food science and technology, sustainability, culinary innovation and business. Students undertake open-innovation projects such as the Junior Projects (engineering oriented) or the Food Prototype module (culinary oriented) and finally participate in a showcase challenge. The Joint FIPDes Summer School provides students with advanced sensory and consumer science modules and tutorials, while the international summer internship allows them to experience a new professional environment.
Second year: students specialize in one of three options in France, Italy or Sweden, + MSc. Thesis Worldwide
Students increase autonomy and enquiry attitudes, learn by doing team work, research-oriented projects and hands-on training. During the fourth semester, they carry out the FIPDes MSc Thesis according to the specialization path and their professional plans, leading to an industrial or research-based placement in international private bodies or academic laboratories.
Throughout the Master programme, students participate in numerous transversal activities which allow them to share and build new knowledge from different perspectives and different places, continuously interacting with alumni, local students, professionals and teaching staff (Introduction modules, FIPDes Day, transversal innovation modules, innovation challenges or IT-based sharing platforms).
