Developing talent for the future

The Centre is committed to deliver excellence in the learning and development of the current and next generation of engineering innovators for the global food system.

The University houses specialist engineering and food laboratories and the centre contains state-of-the-art facilities that enable students to participate in advanced-level research.

Our offer includes:

  • co-delivery of four higher and degree apprenticeships
  • post-graduate and doctoral research training programmes
  • student internships and placement opportunities
  • talent development and continuing professional development for food industry professionals

Our offer is designed in close partnership with sector experts, including the National Skills Academy for Food and Drink, the Food and Drink Federation and high-profile companies such as Cranswick, Asda, Premier Foods, Samworth Brothers, Co-op, 2 Sisters, Morrisons and Fox’s Biscuits.

Our strong links with leading organisations ensure we can provide real-world examples that support academic studies and broaden industry knowledge, through case studies, factory site visits and guest lectures. Many of our partners offer industrial placements to students studying at Sheffield Hallam.

All learners have access to our world-class facilities and become part of a dynamic, industry focussed academic community. By educating the professionals of tomorrow, we can ensure highly qualified engineers enter the industry with the confidence and knowledge to help grow the sector.
