Overview

The Process and Food Technology - 4 Years  at The Hague University of Applied Sciences  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). 

PFT’s specialised theoretical framework, mixed with a variety of hands-on group projects with industry partners, will help form you into a state-of-the-art food or chemical specialist engineer. PFT includes an internship and graduation internship period. 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. Due to the international nature of the PFT programme, you’ll find our alumni working all over the world in a variety of industries.

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.
