Course summary

The globally important agri-food sector is intrinsically linked to challenges around land and water use, climate change, health, and wellbeing. This flexible research programme provides the opportunity to develop expertise in a particular area of agri-food science and to consolidate skills in preparation for positions in research development or technology management.

With a clear focus on improving productivity, efficiency, and sustainability through innovation, researchers at the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology (LIAT) are engaged in impactful research designed to make a difference across the food chain.

Recent projects led by LIAT scientists include the integration of cutting-edge 3D imaging and automation into harvesting and weeding technologies, and an investigation of the genetic code of foodborne pathogens. Engaging with the Institute’s research projects can provide access to expertise in areas including the Internet of Things, automation in the soft fruit industry, dynamic energy control mechanisms, and hydroponic cultivation systems.

Supported by an experienced supervisory team, students may have opportunities to publish their work in academic journals and present their findings at conferences.

An MSc by Research is usually awarded based on the quality of the student’s thesis and ability to present and successfully defend their chosen research topic in an oral examination (viva voce). They are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
