Feed Manufacturing Technology
Master of science (2 year) Full time
You will achieve skills needed for higher level management in the feed milling industry and related industries. This master study is also an excellent background for further scientific research in feed technology.
You will get hands-on experience with the various types of equipment and production lines by fully integrating the possibilities offered by the Centre for Feed Technology in the programme.
Teaching and training is partly based on lectures, but a considerable part is offered as demonstrations and training in groups. The courses are mainly taught by teachers from NMBU but external experts from the feed industry and international companies and institutions will also be called in when appropriate.
The study gives you unique knowledge about nutrition and processing technology. The competence is strongly needed in the feed industry. Your expert knowledge within animal feed production gives you many career opportunities.
The curriculum consists of a combination of nutritional, technological, chemical and physics topics, which combined will represent an unique approach to this topic.
You will become familiar with state-of-the-art feed processing equipment. You will learn about formulations and processing of aquafeeds, petfoods and feeds for traditional production animals.
With at least: 10 credits mathematics, 10 credits chemistry/ physics, 10 credits statistics and 60 credits biological subjects, preferably including nutrition.
I got interested in feed technology while studying aquaculture and decided to combine my knowledge in nutrition with how the feed is produced.Thea Morken, Former student.
