Food Science Undergraduate Program

Food Science brings the science of food to life. Students learn the fundamental properties of food raw materials important to designing and processing safe, wholesome, and attractive food products.

K-State's undergraduate program is certified by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) and indicates the national recognition of the program. The IFT is a nonprofit scientific society with 28,000 members who work in food science and related professions in industry, academia, and government.

Students may choose between the science, business or technology options. The science option curriculum interfaces well with Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Pre-Medicine requirements.
