Erasmus Mundus Students Arrive for Semester 2 (2012) in The School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology
ERASMUS is the EU's flagship education and training program enabling 200,000 students to study and work abroad each year. In addition, it funds cooperation between higher education institutions across Europe. The program not only supports students but also professors and business staff who want to teach abroad and helps university staff receive training.
The consortium partners are AgroParisTech (France), University in Naples (Italy), and Lund University (Sweden). AgroParisTech is the program coordinator, while the School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology will deliver five modules totaling 30 European Credits (ECTS). This programme will be funded for five years.
The DITs School of Culinary Arts together with three other consortium partners have taken modules from their existing master’s degree programs and have now established The Master’s in Food Innovation and Product Design. Congratulations to Dr. Róisín Burke for her exceptional work in the development of this most prestigious academic initiative.
