About the Department

The Department of Food Technology

“Love Food, Love Science.” 

This is the motto that the Department of Food Technology lives by through our Bachelor’s programmes in Chemistry and Food Technology and Master’s programme in Food Technology. As you can imagine, many foodies and lovers of cooking come together here. No wonder, sensory evaluation, i.e. the evaluation of various food products through our senses, takes place here on a daily basis. We also focus on a number of other important aspects of the food industry, among them, of course, food production technology, both of plant and animal origin, as well as the production of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. We investigate the food emulsifiers and stabilizers some of which you can find on the packages of your snacks. We also evaluate food quality and final food products using chemical, physical and chemical-physical methods in our labs following food safety guidelines and state legislation.

By partaking in our degree programmes, you will get an excellent starting point for working in a field which is so dear to the heart of many. If you do not want to leave us after your studies, you will have the opportunity to join our researchers and become part of a scientific team which boasts world-class results.
