Minor in Food Processing and Technology

The Food Processing and Technology Minor provides undergraduates with an introduction to food processing and technology to complement technical or business skills acquired in other majors. This minor offers students interested in careers in the food industry – but whose primary interest is outside the traditional realm of food science – an introduction to food processing, food safety, food laws and food quality assurance. This minor provides students with the fundamental knowledge of food science to broaden their educational background and enhance their attractiveness to employers.
