Food Science Technology

Food science technologists apply basic science to ensure that food is safe, nutritious, and enjoyable. This program introduces students to the study of the chemical, biological, and physical makeup of food and the principles underlying food processing. Students will examine processing, packaging, distribution, and use of safe food as well as human nutritional needs. 

The Food Science Technology major prepares students for employment in the food industry in areas such as production, quality assurance, sanitation, research and development, and laboratory analysis.  

The AS Degree transfers to universities offering majors in food science. A 16-credit Food Science certificate is also offered within this degree plan.

NOTE:  See a Riverland advisor for information on prerequisite and transfer of courses.
