Food Safety (B.Sc.)

Together with Fresenius University (Idstein), Geisenheim University educates the experts-to-be in food safety. The students analyze, assess and ensure the quality of food in an inter-disciplinary environment – they combine the competencies of food technologists and chemists. Apart from legal issues and technology, chemistry, biology and analysis are in focus, since guaranteeing food safety means the application of the natural sciences. Case studies, projects and excursions cater for optimal networking.
