Interuniversity (UP/UAM) interdisciplinary studies of second-degree food analytics


Interdisciplinary studies of second-degree: Food analytics – were initiated by the University of Life Sciences in Poznan and the Faculty of Chemistry at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. Classes are conducted by the staff of these departments and are held at both campuses.

For whom?

For all students who want to combine a solid analytical knowledge with knowledge of food technology, industry specificity and food quality control. The courses are designed for graduates of first degree studies in engineering, such as: food and nutrition technology, chemical engineering, commodity science and other related fields (3 semesters), university studies such as: chemistry and related fields (4 semesters). The graduate receives a diploma of completion of two universities and a master’s degree in engineering.


Food analytics students:

  • Combining science with everyday life
  • Learn about specific processes and analytical methods Innovative course of study
  • Quality requirements are constantly raised and control is required
  • With the title of Master of Engineering, I receive a diploma of two universities


The studies are conducted in a 3-semester system for graduates of engineering majors and 4 semesters for university graduates (who start semester earlier). The classes take place at the Department of Food Science and Nutrition, UP in Poznan and at the Faculty of Chemistry at the Adam Mickiewicz University (Morasko campus). Approximate number of places for the direction – 40 persons (20 in the 4th semester cycle (UAM registration) and 20 in the 3rd semester cycle (UP registration)). Seminars within 3 semesters are conducted for all students together.


Graduation requirements for graduates of the first degree studies ending with the title of engineer – exact deadline January 2016 – is conducted by the University of Life Sciences in Poznan. The order of admission will be determined by the result of the interview which confirms the results of the education obtained by the candidates in the first degree studies, from the scope of general chemistry, organic chemistry and food chemistry.
