World-class food science education, for the public good
Supplying an expanding global population with adequate food is one of the greatest challenges facing humankind in the 21st century. As one of the premier food science programs in the nation, we apply the principles of science and engineering to ensure the nutritional value, safety and quality of foods in the United States and around the globe. Our programs integrate the disciplines of chemistry, biology, nutrition, physiology, biotechnology and engineering to ensure that all people have access to healthy, affordable food.
Through a combination of research and formal coursework, the graduate field of Food Science and Technology is designed to train scientists to develop technologies which will help provide a safe, nutritious and affordable global food supply.
Graduate field faculty
Members of the Food Science and Technology graduate field are internationally recognized faculty, with a broad range of expertise in all facets of food science.
Graduate program funding
Graduate program funding is available in a number of different options for students seeking a variety of degrees.
