Students in the Food Science program develop innovative ways to process, preserve, and package food, making our food supply safer, sustainable and more nutritious. This degree combines biology, chemistry, psychology, and engineering to study the properties of food. The MS in Food Science can be completed in as little as 18 months, with classes are offered in the evenings. With over 1,500 food-processing companies within a 90 minute drive, of campus, our graduates enjoy nearly a 100% placement rate upon graduation.
What is Food Science?
Food Science is the discipline in which scientists use biology, chemistry, physical sciences, psychology and engineering to study the properties of foods. They develop innovative ways to process, preserve, or package food, thereby making our food supply safer, sustainable and more nutritious.
Faculty members are also working scientists engaged in a variety of research, including the examination of using irradiation in place of harmful chemicals to eliminate insects from fruit, as well as the study of food antioxidants and whether or not they can also be used to make food safer against disease causing bacteria.
