Course Objectives

The principal objective of the Course is to produce a graduate who can approach specialised studies with the utmost efficacy in order to become a Master's Degree graduate with very high professional standards. This graduate can face the many issues of animal productions in the various territorial frameworks (including, very concisely, economic, environmental and ethical sustainability) to guarantee a future to foods of animal origin, which are the core of Made in Italy products (Grana Padano cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Parma ham and several other products of protected designation of origin (PDO) and protected geographical indication (PGI) that can promote the certification, protection of food products of animal origin and their exportation to third party countries.
As an alternative, the graduate can immediately be employed by sectors defined by the Ministerial Decree for degree categories that have acquired detailed basic know-how and the skills to apply them and critically transfer them.

Career and Employment

Besides the natural progress to further studies to obtain a Master's Degree in Animal Production, the graduate can find career opportunities as:

  • Technician for the production of zootechnical foods, supplements and additives;
  • Technician for the production of foods of animal origin;
  • Technician for the production of functional and biological foods;
  • Technician for production line inspections for foods of animal origin.
