The most up-to-date laboratory tools and methods are available to the students of the University of Debrecen owing to the new collaboration between the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and Environmental Management and Wessling Hungary Kft.
The collaborative work will also include microbiological, analytical and genomic research. In turn, scientific results may also be published in the company's prestigious scientific journal, the Journal of Food Investigation, in both Hungarian and English.
We provide students with the opportunity to spend a work placement of a few weeks or even a semester with us, and later possibly have the opportunity to work at Wessling. In addition, it is important for us to provide new, innovative responses to current challenges, particularly in the area of food safety. In this cooperation, we will rely on the knowledge base of the faculty - emphasised Managing Director László Zanathy.
In engineering education, it is essential that students develop an engineering approach, for which, in addition to theoretical knowledge, professional practice is essential. We consider it important that our students get to know the various large instruments not only in the laboratories of the university, but also in such well-equipped companies with international reputation as Wessling Hungary Kft. - emphasized Dean Diána Bánáti at the press conference, where the Faculty of Agriculture of Debrecen University signed a cooperation agreement with the consulting, analyst and design company.
More than 1,400 students are studying at the University of Debrecen's Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and Environmental Management, and this year they enrolled 415 applicants, which is an increase of eight percent compared to the previous year.
At the event on Thursday, it was said that the family business has been operating in Hungary for 27 years and is primarily engaged in environmental, food safety and drug control inspections. Through this cooperation, it has now become the training facility for the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and Environmental Management.
