This new one year full-time masters course prepares graduate level scientists for a career in brewing, or its allied industries. The programme facilitates the development of technically competent and creative brewers by providing substantial hands-on experience of practical brewing, using our state-of-the-art pilot facilities.
Practical brewing skills are supported with technical knowledge to ensure that graduates understand the scientific principles which underpin the brewing process and are able to innovate, problem solve, and conduct scientifically robust experiments. The programme ends with an innovative brewing research project, specifically designed for you to practise your acquired skills. This course is taught by staff from the School of Biosciences with expertise in brewing and related sciences, together with invited contributions from specialist brewing practitioners; all are internationally renowned leaders within their field.
The course consists of taught modules (120 credits), followed by a brewing research project (60 credits) in which you will use skills and knowledge gained during the taught modules to devise and undertake an innovative piece of research. Typically, projects will be conducted in partnership with the brewing industry and provide opportunities for work experience.
