Course summary

The Course

The globally important agri-food sector is intrinsically linked to challenges around land and water use, climate change, health, and wellbeing. This industry-guided programme aims to equip students with the advanced skills, knowledge, and expertise needed to undertake technical and production management roles within this growing industry.

Students at Lincoln have the opportunity to study a variety of forward thinking topics such as advanced crop science, advanced food manufacturing, new product and process development, food safety and technical management, as well as commercial, operational, supply chain, and agile management.

Following the taught element of the programme, the course offers students a choice between a research project in industry or academia, where they will have the opportunity to make contacts and apply their knowledge in a real-life setting, or a six-month professional practice placement.

During the programme, students have the chance to visit agri-food industries to see the practical applications of their knowledge and hear from a series of guest speakers on sustainability in the food industry and agri-robotics. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.

Career and Personal Development

This programme is designed to prepare students for a career in one of the world’s largest industries, agri-food. Agriculture companies, food manufacturers, producers, and retailers are large employers, as are government departments that develop food policy. Graduates may pursue careers in technical roles, marketing, distribution, plant supervision, and product development. They may also choose to form their own company, with the help of the University’s award-winning business support centre, Sparkhouse.

The University Careers and Employability team can work with students to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during their time at the University. Alumni can continue to receive support for 15 months after they graduate. This service can include one-to-one coaching, CV advice and interview preparation. The service works closely with local, national, and international employers, acting as a gateway to the business world.
