Joint PhD

The NTU-Wageningen University partnership came about as both universities were inspired by the shared objectives of promoting and accelerating the progress of research, education and training in the increasingly important area of Food Science and Technology. After the success of the second major programme in Food Science and Technology in 2014, Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore) will be partnering with Wageningen University (WU, Netherlands), once again to introduce a joint PhD programme for students from both universities in 2016.

This marks a significant milestone in the continual collaboration effort between NTU and WU in establishing a platform to tackle critical issues in the area of food processing, security and safety in Asia and to ramp up research in Food Science and Technology, an upcoming research frontier that is expected to be an important engine of growth for Singapore.

Offering a synergistic combination of research resources, including world-class talent and cutting-edge facilities, the programme draws the best students with top faculty as academic supervisors.
