North Dakota State University (Food Science)

Food science deals with the transformation of raw agricultural goods into food products acceptable for human consumption. This field of applied science involves studying diverse scientific disciplines such as chemistry, engineering, microbiology, biochemistry, toxicology and management as they relate to food, and effectively applying the industrial and practical aspects to product development, food processing, preservation and marketing.

The Faculty and Facilities
Food science is a four-year curriculum offered by the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources through the Department of Cereal and Food Sciences. The program draws on the expertise of faculty in several departments at North Dakota State University. These faculty have expertise in both teaching and research. Many have industry experience with numerous connections in the food industry.

The Industrial Agriculture and Communications Center (IACC) and Harris Hall at NDSU house laboratories and teaching facilities where many of the food science courses are taught. Extensive facilities are available for teaching and food processing research.

The Curriculum
The program includes courses in food chemistry, food analysis, food and dairy microbiology, food processing, food engineering, meat science, nutrition science and cereal technology, in addition to basic courses in mathematics, the sciences, humanities and social sciences. Most of the applied courses in food science are taken after the basic courses have laid the groundwork for the student.

The program allows flexibility in selecting suitable electives to direct one's career goal. Areas of emphasis include food safety, microbiology, sciences, business and management, engineering, nutrition and processing.

The curriculum for food science is approved by the Institute of Food Technologists. The four-year undergraduate program leads to a B.S. degree in food science. The program enables graduates to recognize, critically analyze and solve problems realistically in both industrial and academic environments. It provides the opportunity to gain industrial experience during undergraduate study by means of industry internships.
