PhD by research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis.The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning.The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University.
Research in this area of food science should provide data on how to provide the world's population with safe, nutritious, appetizing and affordable food. Achieving this goal requires an in-depth study of the issues of processing, packaging, distribution and evaluation of food. It involves many disciplines and uses the principles of biology, microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, physics and engineering to solve practical problems related to the food industry. Food scientists were among the first to work with biotechnology. Food scientists work with food from the moment it leaves the farm to the storage of the final product, including all processing, preparation and distribution operations. In addition, they determine the factors that influence the safety, nutritional value and acceptability of food.
65 academic credits besides a Master's program. Max Average Duration: 18 months + 6 months further on demand.
Considering that APUW students come from all over the world, often miles away from the university headquarters, the Doctor PhD degree via distance learning thesis can be defended in three different ways:
- Written Defence: the student develops his/her defence in a 5 pages report;
- Oral Defense: (recommended) the student sends an audio or video file (at least 30 minutes duration) containing his/her defence;
- In presence: speaking in front of two/three professors of APUW University. The student sets a date with the Secretariat to defend his/her thesis in the APUW headquarters.
