Unterrichts-/ Lehrsprachen


This is an interactive seminar program with direct participation of the students. The interaction among all participants is not only fixed to the given time schedule of the seminar meetings, but is also extended to home work, sometimes under pressure of time (like under real conditions). Starting with fundamental tools of risk management related to food safety as an introductory part, actual topics are dealt with in typical role plays. For example, chemical, microbiological or physical hazards are in the focus of case studies, where student teams act under simulated practical conditions and under moderation of supervisors. To accomplish this role play, established E-learning tools are utilized for communication as well as studying.
Topics like safety, legal requirements, responsibility, traceability and authenticity are also covered.
