SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF MILK AND DAIRY PRODUCTS

Londrina – PR

About Us

The milk productive chain grows annually and there is urgency in the formation of qualified human resources, either to work in teaching and in research, or directly with the producers and industrial units of milk and dairy products. Therefore, it is essential the formation of researchers able to develop new products and/or processes to meet the demands of this important segment of the agribusiness.

In this sense, UNOPAR is a pioneer in offering a Stricto Sensu Graduate Program, in a specific area of the large area of Food Science and Technology, and which aims to train professionals of higher level for the exercise of activities of teaching, research and technological innovation.

The Academic Master’s degree in Science and Technology of Milk and Dairy Products is a contemporary course, designed to broaden and deepen knowledge about the production and technology of dairy products. In addition to providing the ascension of our students in the academic environment, the sensu stricto modality enables the refinement in its approach to industrial problems and in the development of new products, improving the definition of hypotheses, the work methodology, data analysis and interpretation of the results.

Thus, the objective of the course is not limited to teachers and researchers’ training, but also enhances the essential skills to the exercise of any profession within the productive chain of milk and derivative products. Currently, this sector produces about 35 billion liters of milk a year and employs more than 4 million people in Brazil, among professionals of research, teaching, extension, industrial technicians and businessmen. This scenario shows the importance of the improvement of human resources in the area of dairy products, offering competitive advantage in relation to the employability, either for academic work or directly with producers and industrial units of milk and dairy products.

Our course is a pioneer in offering a Program of Stricto Sensu graduate degrees in a specific area of the large area of Food Science and Technology, being composed of two lines of research covering the whole chain of milk and derivative products, since the animal production, passing by the industrial processing, up to themes associated to technological innovation and functionality of dairy products. Our disciplines, in addition to the requirements of classical concepts of the area, also discuss current issues, stimulating the students’ theoretical reflection and reasoning. All this favors the formation of leaders who act with a critical sense, mastery and excellence in results.
