Content and Structure

Food, nutrition and facilities (in German: Oecotrophologie) is an interdisciplinary study program, in which we provide education in the fields of nutrition, food processing, home economics, services, consulting and education. Hence graduates will be qualified for a wide variety of jobs covering quality control, food product development, hospitality business, research, nutritional advice and dietetics.

The first-year of study includes the acquirement of basic skills in natural sciences, social sciences, communication and economics. With the choice of specialization in the second-year students emphasize the following majors:

  • Nutrition and Health
  • Food processing
  • Service- and Cateringmanagement

In the fourth-year students have to do an internship for 15 weeks in one of the respective job areas. With completing the bachelor thesis at the end of the study program, the degree of a Bachelor of Science will be awarded.
