Program Description:

A key component of the MProf Food & Drink Innovation (Sustainability and Packaging) is to foster creativity through enquiry-based learning, where mixed-discipline teams of students will develop solutions to industry-posed problems. Industry-linked innovation projects will be developed by multidisciplinary teams of students, mentored and supported by experienced industry practitioners and academic researchers, and underpinned by high-level sector specific modules and education. With activities ranging from pitch and crit sessions, where solution conceptions are pitched to a panel for critique, to the development of protyped solutions, teams are mentored and supervised by academics and industry practitioners to facilitate the development of specific professional skills and a broader understanding of the Food & Drink industry. During the course, students will also undertake studies in areas such as sustainable project management, industry landscape and professional practice, packaging and sustainability, and innovation and professional development. Students also select optional modules from across the University, allowing further development of their core skills if required, but more specifically allowing for a more individual and tailored learning experience through the additional study of areas of personal interest such as marketing, business, and food safety.
