The course is managed by the Department of Life Sciences


The Degree Programme aims to provide professional knowledge and skills that ensure a comprehensive view of the agri-food chain, from production to consumption. The contents of the course provide students with knowledge of agricultural production and the food industry, aimed at producing quality foods that are also healthy for consumers, taking advantage of the innovations offered by modern technologies, while respecting the environment and sustainability.

Programme contents

During the two-year period with common teachings, students acquire knowledge and methodological tools that provide them with the skills to follow, starting from the third year, a more specialised path by choosing one of the two curricula available. The Agricultural Technology programme addresses the problems and perspectives related to the production sector, giving importance to the typical teachings of the agricultural area (agronomy and cultivation, traditional and organic breeding, improvement, environmental protection, applied technologies, enhancement) with specific regard to innovation and sustainability. The Food Technology programme leads to the acquisition of knowledge in food technology (food engineering and technological processes, microbiology, analytical chemistry, food packaging) with a view to a responsible and innovative food quality management. The programme includes a training internship in affiliated companies or organizations that is an effective opportunity for getting in touch with the world of work.

Job opportunities

The Degree Programme in Agricultural and Food Science and Technology provides the skills needed to perform tasks and assume technical and technical-managerial roles in the production, conservation and distribution activities developed by the companies that make up the overall agri-food system and in public and private organisations that conduct analysis, control, certification and surveys for the protection and enhancement of agri-food production. Graduates can also work in companies dedicated to the production of materials, machines and plants, adjuvants, ingredients and pesticides. The Degree Programme in Agricultural and Food Sciences and Technologies allows students to access the Master's Degree Programmes in Food Control and Safety (LM-70), Integrated Sustainability of Agricultural Systems (LM-69) and the Inter-University Master's Degree Programme (English-taught) in Food Safety and Risk Management (LM-70).
