Overview

This course aims to provide a detailed critical awareness of the risks, challenges and opportunities of providing a sustainable supply of food to the world’s population, as we move into the future.

Many food companies have identified the need for a focus in their own business areas on future food sustainability, and have acknowledged a need for trained individuals, both in the form of new graduates and also in re-training professionals already established in the food industry. However, it is not just food companies that are concerned with the sustainability of future food supply: – government departments are concerned with food sustainability in terms of policy making and governance – research institutes are actively involved in the development of improved animal and plant production systems – various NGOs are involved in influencing policy, attitudes and communication to the public.

All of these diverse groups have an urgent need to recruit individuals with the skills set to address these challenges. This course is taught using the expertise and facilities of two Cranfield University Schools; the School of Water, Energy and Environment and the School of Management.

Programme structure

The course comprises eight compulsory assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project. The modules include lectures, practical sessions and tutorials.

Career opportunities

Successful, motivated graduates from this course are expected to move swiftly into positions within food businesses, government, NGOs and research companies/institutes to engage in roles involving research, management, governance, communication and social responsibility. Specific relevant job roles may include; technical managers, sustainability managers, technical development managers, product technologists, resilience officers, supply chain/logistics analysts, commodity analysts, regulatory affairs advisers, and policy officers.
