A recipe for food innovation.
How foods are made, kept safe, the way they are packaged, even the way they taste,
feel or look, are all results of food science.
In this program, you will study biology, chemistry, nutrition, engineering and other
sciences. You will learn to apply this knowledge in the laboratory to research and
develop new or improved food and beverage products with novel flavors, textures and
Much of your education will take place in the on-campus labs, where you could examine
food-spoiling bacteria, analyze foodborne pathogens, collect taste-sensory data, or learn
how to process and package meat, dairy and cereal products.
