About Department

The sustainable food system framework is built around the need for food systems to be designed and implemented to ensure everyone has access to healthy, nutritious and safe food. The study of sustainable food systems requires the use of multidisciplinary approaches and methods in cooperation with all food system stakeholders to fully address the environmental, economic and social dimensions of sustainability. "Design and Innovation for Sustainable Food Systems Master's Program" aims to develop creative and innovative solutions to the problems that the food system faces on a global, national and local scale by integrating the methods, knowledge and approaches of different disciplines (science, engineering, social sciences, humanities,architecture and design etc.) into design and innovation processes using  a systems framework."
