Food Technology and Safety
Master course in Technology and Food Safety aim to prepare professionals to act in the fields of:
Quality of the food value of raw and processed products;
Production processes on food industries;
Control of food quality and safety in agro-food industries;
Development of new products and/or improvement of current ones;
Management systems for food quality and safety/ standardization;
Certification of products and systems for production and processing of products and raw food;
Sustainability of agro and food industries/food chain development;
Research, development and consulting services in food technology, quality and safety.
Masters in Technology and Food Safety will be able to work at the level of production, quality control and food safety in agricultural and food industries as well as to develop new products and/or improve existing ones. They can also perform research and development tasks as well as providing consulting services in technology and/or Food Safety.

Conditions of admittance
The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.
The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.
All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).
All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.
For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.
The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
