Biosystems & Food Engineering - Research
About the College
Biosystems & Food Engineering is the application of engineering principles to the production, manufacture & processing of biological materials.
These include biosensors, enzymes, food products, advanced packaging systems and precision production & harvesting systems, while at the same time protecting the environment.
The School provides modules in achieving sustainable development and environmental protection by developing improved waste management techniques, and systems to protect air, soil and water quality.
The School's interests are diverse and include food processing, agricultural production systems, renewable resources, biofuels and environmental protection.
The research team in Biosystems and Food Engineering at University College Dublin are actively researching a wide diversity of topics including the following:
Sustainable Agriculture & Soil Resources
Environmental Risk Assessment
Imaging and Computer Vision
Life Cycle Assessment
Risk Assessment and Traceability
Process Analytical Technology
UCD School of Biosystems and Food Engineering educate engineers, scientists and technologists in the scientific and technological aspects of food manufacturing and processing.
