About

As an upcoming student of the Process and Food Technology - 3 years (PFT) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS), you’ll embrace this increase in consumer awareness. It will encourage you to innovate existing manufacturing processes, or design entirely new ones, to provide sustainable and resourceful food and chemical industries.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The Process and Food Technology - 3 years (PFT) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) consists of two main pillars: food technology and chemical engineering. Themes in the first two years are water purification, sustainable food production, (in)organic chemistry, polymer science and technology (plastics and 3D printing). In year two you’ll be introduced to more advanced process and food technologies, such as fluid flow dynamics and reaction kinetics. 

PFT’s specialised theoretical framework, mixed with a variety of hands-on group projects, will teach you how to dissect the chemical composition of various materials and substances and teach you various techniques on how to improve them. Our alumni are highly valued by companies such as Dutch Royal Shell, Heineken, P&G, and Unilever for their advanced technical skills, multicultural communication skills and strong practical project working abilities.

Career 

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?

The multidisciplinary nature of PFT means that you’ll be attractive to employers from all kinds of industries and many of the skills you obtain are transferrable to different professions.

Like the study programme, your career prospects are very broad and job roles include:

What will you become

  • Operations technician
  • Food technologist
  • Product designer
  • Quality controller
  • Security advisor
  • Chief fire-fighter
  • Drug safety medical advisor
  • Process safety engineer
  • Production specialist
  • Research technician

Accreditation

This programme is offered by NVAO.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

Year 1

  • Year one of PFT will teach you the basics of engineering, such as advanced mathematics, chemistry and physics. From day one, you’ll receive regular assignments from food and biochemical companies, to make the theory more interesting and more applicable to real life examples.

Year 2 

  • In year two of PFT, you’ll start with a project designing a safe and sustainable processing plant. Again, you’ll deal with real companies who want to reinvigorate their production processes.

Year 3

  • In the third and final year, you’ll learn the professional values needed for PFT. Additional courses like Thermo Dynamics, Quality Control and the Aspen crash-course - a professional modelling tool used by all PFT engineers - will steer you in the right direction
