Food and Beverage Innovation
The Master’s thesis is the core of your studies. You select modules from Entrepreneurial Skills and Advanced Life Science Skills at an early stage to prepare you for work on your thesis. From the start you work in a research group at the Institute of Food and Beverage Innovation in Wädenswil or in an external company, organisation or research facility. On the basis of your research you provide answers to specific questions and develop concrete solutions that are relevant to the world of work, research and/or society – often in collaboration with national or international partners. In your thesis you provide evidence of the ability to apply the knowledge and competences you have gained in a particular area.
