What is Food Science?

If you see it on the grocery shelf, a food scientist was involved. Call it a food technologist or a “food nerd”, but it doesn’t get much better than getting paid to eat your own science experiment. Come be a part of developing new products anywhere along the path from the farm to the kitchen table.

Our school has a rich tradition of hands-on learning; students work side by side with faculty in every aspect of the discipline. Their degree comes from their home university; their knowledge base comes from faculty on both sides of the Washington-Idaho border.
