17 students from 13 countries received the diploma of the prestigious Swiss Institute of Feed Technology (SFT) in Uzwil, Switzerland.
Following intensive ten-month training, the students can now be officially named ‘Feed Production Engineer’. This year’s distinction of the best final score went to the Brazilian Leonardo Miyata, employee at Bühler AG in Joinville, Brazil.
SFT is a non-profit association that is recognised by the Association of Swiss Feed Manufacturers (VSF) as an institution of training and continuing education. The SFT imparts practice-oriented specialist knowledge of feed production processes to professionals from the feed manufacturing industry and related industries. A successful completion of the specialist course provides the basis for graduates to understand state-of-the-art process technologies and to apply this expertise to practice.
The international Technology Group Bühler AG is the partner of the SFT. To date, over 520 men and women from 69 countries have successfully completed the Specialist Course in Feed Manufacturing Technology. The 34th Specialist Course in Feed Manufacturing Technology will start in January 2016 and will be held in German.
