Norwegian University of Life Sciences is starting a new PhD course for all PhD students studying at Scandinavian Universities and abroad. It is a feed manufacturing course which includes both traditional and novel ingredients for compound feed, related to both terrestrial production animals and fish, striving for nutritional progress.
The purpose of this course is to gain in-depth knowledge of how and why different key processes and equipments are installed and used in feed production plants. The objective is that the students will be able to understand the principles used for key processes and to optimise these processes through discussions with factory personnel and scientists.
The core of the course is the experimental work (seminar) at the Center for Feed Technology, supported by lectures. The students will have to read literature, both up front, and after the course days at Aas. Then the final part of the course is to write a report about the experimental work with feed processing.
