Overview

College Diploma in Food Processing Technician (Optional Co-op)

Suppose you are a hands-on, technically-minded individual looking for a fast-paced work environment. 

In that case, the field of food and beverage manufacturing and the Food Processing Technician Program is well suited to you. 

This 2–year accelerated Ontario College Diploma program is delivered over 4 consecutive terms of study. 

It includes courses on industrial maintenance, drawings and schematics, machine technology, pumps, valves, motor controls and PLCs, as well as an introduction to food science, food processing methods, food safety and an overview of the principles of food manufacturing. 

At the Institute of Food Processing Technology’s (IFPT) one-of-a-kind, semi-industrial lab facility—the only facility in Canada—located on Conestoga College’s Cambridge campus, you will get intensive hands-on experience with industrial food processing equipment to support your learning and development. 

Additionally, eligible students can apply for an optional co-operative education experience for their third term of study to gain valuable real-world experience. 

As a graduate of IFPT, you will be well prepared for industry positions in food and beverage manufacturing and ready to support equipment operation, maintenance, and sanitation to ensure the production of high-quality and safe food products. 

The optional co-op stream includes one co-op work term instead of the Guided Career Management course.
