The Process and Food Technology - 3 Years offered by The Hague University of Applied Sciences  will teach you how to dissect the chemical composition of various materials and substances and teach you various techniques on how to improve them.


You could be a process technologist working on a new type of recyclable plastic for Sigma Aldrich Amsterdam or GE plastics in Bergen op Zoom. You could also apply for numerous jobs in the FMCG industry. But as a young professional, you do much more. You’ll discover the culture at your company and what the profession does on a daily basis. You’ll attend meetings and company parties. You’ll also learn all there is to know about your market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do. Of course you can also continue your education worldwide at the master’s level.

Is there anything I cannot be after I graduate?

Year 2
