The main goal of FTTS is to educate students that will be future project leaders in a variety of technological cases related to food and health. We believe that our students are in an excellent position to examine and provide guidance on issues of food today and into the 21st century.
The main mission of the Faculty is training the students for careers pertaining to the diverse issues of food, nutrition and health. With the quickening pace of technological changes in food supply and increasing understanding of how food affects our health, it is imperative that young people are able to examine and evaluate the complex relationships of food, food safety and nutrition issues of central importance to health policy. The vision of the Faculty is to make students as future leaders in food technology and nutrition that will be equipped to address complex interdisciplinary problems utilizing traditional as well as novel socio-economic and biological approaches.
The UKLO FTTS Faculty consists of a multidisciplinary group of professors and scientists with expertise in various aspects of nutrition, food science, biochemistry, medicine, public health, epidemiology, food toxicology and food safety. Our relatively young and enthusiastic faculty staff is highly educated and motivated for this work that is proved by continuous success in participation in national and international projects, as well as relevant published references.
The FTTS Faculty constantly follows the novel trends in Food Science, Food Technology and Biotechnology as well as in Nutrition Science. It expands its programs with the main goal to achieve the best knowledge, skills and trainings for staff members, undergraduate and graduate students living in a rapidly changing world of variety of food products and technologies.
