Agro-Industrial Production and Processing Technologies
Mastering technologies state of the art with sustainable application in agro-industry, including aspects on the frontier of knowledge in order to develop appropriate professional activity to the production of food raw materials;
Analyze the complexity of agribusiness systems in innovative ways, demonstrating critical, enterprising and creative capacity in the reformulation of food products;
Understand the several ways of an agro-industrial processing system suitable to the design of new food products as well as the social context in which the system is inserted;
Communicating and interacting in team, with intervention in the production processes of the agro-food industries looking to optimize processes and being aware of the responsibilities and ethical and professional obligations.
The masters in Agro-Industrial Production and Manufacturing Technologies will be able to perform their profession in public and private sector organizations in management activities, Development, Maintenance and Quality Control in Agro-Food Industry linked in obtaining materials raw and processed products. They also can integrate services companies including consulting, project and audit or perform research tasks in academic and/or business context.

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.
