The content of these subjects covers access to sources of scientific information, database management, and scientific presentations and communication (oral and written) in Spanish and English, along with the scientific method, biostatistics, epidemiology and bioethics, all applied to topics in food science. In addition, students will attend on-campus discussion sessions held with guest experts concerning current topics in food science.

All master's degree students will be assigned a research group in which, under the supervision of a tutor, they will carry out their Master's Thesis Project, in conjunction with the research conducted by the various groups.
