B.S. in Food Engineering

Honoring nature through transformation

The food industry is undergoing unimaginable changes: in the near future, scientists will be exploring new sources of protein and other nutrients and the reuse of byproducts will be the norm, as will 3-D printing of foods. Other forms of production, preservation, storage and distribution will be required. As a Food Engineer, you will play the leading role in history.
Especialidad

Career field

On graduating from Food Engineering, you will be able to work in diverse areas of an organization, such as:

  • Fresh food preservation and processed food production
  • Innovation and development of beverages and food products
  • Quality assurance and production line supervision
  • Design of food safety systems
  • Administration, logistics and sales in food, beverage and additive processing companies, and in firms that design and build packaging and packing equipment and services
  • Food engineering consultancy
  • Research centers
