(MSc) AgriFood Sustainability & Technology

The agrifood sector is Ireland’s largest indigenous industry employing over 150,000 people, involving over 600 leading companies, and generating an annual output of over €24 billion. Globally, food and agriculture (agrifood) is an US$8 trillion industry, responsible for feeding the planet and employing 40% of the global workforce. To meet demand for food, feed, fibre and other agri-derived products, our agriculture and food systems need to transition towards more sustainable models. This will require a focus on sustainability combined with technological, institutional, business and social innovations that can produce more agriproducts on the same footprint of land, while also reducing resource demands and the environmental footprint of agriculture. The NUI Galway master's degree in AgriFood Sustainability & Technology generates graduates with the interdisciplinary skills to respond to such challenges and opportunities both in Ireland, and in other leading agrifood nations worldwide. The programme is run in collaboration with Ireland’s Agriculture and Food Authority (Teagasc) and other leading agrifood partners from Ireland and internationally. The programme provides a strong enabling platform for students to develop careers in the agrifood sector in Ireland and globally.
