The University of Lincoln is ranked in the top 200 in the world for Agriculture and Forestry in the QS World University Rankings 2019.
This programme aims to equip students with the advanced skills, knowledge and expertise to undertake technical and production management roles in the globally important agri-food sector.
The agri-food sector is intrinsically linked to challenges around land and water use, climate change and health and well-being.
Students will have the opportunity to study areas such as advanced crop science, advanced food manufacturing, new product and process development, food safety & technical management, as well as commercial, operational, supply chain and agile management.
Students will also have access to industry-relevant specialist technologies and new equipment at both the University of Lincoln’s food and agricultural campuses, the National Centre for Food Manufacturing at Holbeach, and at Riseholme Park. The costs of this travel will be covered by the University.
There will be the chance to undertake a research project either in industry or academia, which provides an opportunity to apply new knowledge in a real-life setting. This will also allow students the opportunity to make invaluable contacts with potential employers prior to completing the course.
Lincoln’s research in agriculture, veterinary and food science is internationally acclaimed. It is rated among the best in the UK for quality of outputs in the latest national assessment of university research standards (REF 2014).
