Passionate about food. Passionate about science.
Food Science integrates a broad range of core scientific disciplines (including chemistry, biology, biochemistry, microbiology, nutrition and health, and engineering) to solve real problems associated with the many facets of the food system. Food Science graduates find rewarding careers in food engineering and processing, food quality control and assurance, food sustainability and policy, food product formulation and new product development, and food microbiology and safety.
We feed the minds to feed a hungry world.
Food Science students study the chemical and physical composition of food and food ingredients to understand how best to preserve, process, package, and distribute foods that are nutritious, wholesome, affordable, desirable, sustainable and safe to eat. Because the food industry is the largest industry in the world, food scientists are in high demand.
