The Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) has today (19 September) launched an industry approved BSc in Food Innovation (Brewing and Distilling).
The BSc will provide candidates with the 'necessary scientific and engineering skills to pursue careers in both well-established and new breweries and distilleries'.
Mary Mitchell-O’Connor, Minister of State at the Department of Education said, “The launch of this BSc programme is timely for the industry as it is one of Ireland’s fastest growing industry sectors, exporting over 94% of its output."
She also highlighted that according to Food Wise 2025 it is expected that the brewing and distilling sector will create 23,000 more jobs, increase its exports by 85% to €19 billion and increase its value addition to the economy by 70% to over €13 billion.
Students will reportedly get industry experience in both Diageo and Irish Distillers.
