Fábio Ferreira from Mozambique graduated the diploma course as one of the best students in 2018. The SFT had the opportunity to talk to him.

Fábio Ferreira works for HIGEST, an animal feed manufacturer in Maputo, Mozambique. With over 25 years of experience in the Mozambican market, HIGEST is responsible for the production and marketing of quality day-old chicks, feed and frozen chicken. In addition, the company offers its customers regular technical support in helping them to get the most out of their products.

In order to empower his professional development, Fábio Ferreira participated in the 2018 Diploma Course and graduated as one of the best students.

His goal was to gain relevant background knowledge regarding different feed manufacturing process steps, animal nutrition, automation and feed mill management to be better prepared for his day-to-day tasks. Looking back on the course, he said it had been a very challenging and rewarding experience. Understanding the functional principles of machines and the ability to apply this knowledge has not only helped Fábio Ferreira but also his company.

The Diploma Course 2018 was characterized by participants with different educational backgrounds and experiences. Some worked directly in the feed mill, others in the technology sector or, like Fábio, as a plant manager. Due to individual know-how, the participants were able to take advantage and share their knowledge during their self-studies, alongside the lessons at the SFT. The development of an own international network was a nice extra.

The opportunity to start the development of a Technology Department at HIGEST, one year after completing the diploma course, was the reward for a demanding but very educational time.

Only the diploma course writes such success stories. A lot of knowledge transfer, exchange of experience and hands-on training make this specialized training unique. Take your chance and apply me for the diploma course at the SFT. The dates are fixed!
