¿Qué aprenderé?

Food science and technology is a fusion of chemistry, microbiology and engineering. Our researchers explore innovation in the areas of creating new, healthful food products, and ensuring a safe and tasty food supply. Specific research emphases include: improving food nutrition, quality and flavor, developing novel functional food ingredients and products for promoting human health, packaging design and use of advanced technologies to identify and control food-borne disease causing organisms.

Individual graduate programs are customized with the advisor to emphasize food safety/microbiology, biochemistry, food chemistry, or packaging. Student graduate programs are built around courses in microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, engineering, and statistics. This diverse curriculum prepares students for opportunities in industry, universities or government. Students who earn graduate degrees in Food Science and Technology at Virginia Tech have pursued careers with large food companies (Nestle, Campbell, Kroger, ConAgra, Hershey, etc.) and public health agencies (USDA, FDA, State Health and Agriculture Departments).
