Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Food Science - Optional Co-op

Food is a multi-billion dollar industry that is influenced by changing socio-economic conditions and evolving agricultural and industrial technologies. As a Food Science student, you will apply chemistry, microbiology and physics to study the processing and development of food products and processes. The program also covers aspects of law, health, nutrition, and security as they relate to food safety and quality. You will obtain hands-on experience in the industrial processes such as pasteurization, sterilization, fermentation, and packaging and apply these to commodity groups such as dairy, meats, cereals and beverages. In addition, you will gain experience in sensory evaluation and in the development of new food products and effective food safety and quality assurance programs. Communication skills are also emphasized to help ensure success in your future career.

Explore the processing and product development of safe and healthy foods, and fill the gap between the production of farm goods and the year round delivery of food products to the global consumer. Apply your skills learned in chemistry, processing, microbiology, quality assurance and sensory evaluation to the development of a food product from idea generation right through to product marketing.

Also available in co-op.

The Co-op program in Food Science is a five year program, including four work terms.

Note: A minimum of three Co-op work terms including a Summer, Fall, and Winter are necessary to complete the Co-op requirement. *A fourth Co-op work term is optional and if completed, the total number of credits will equal 22.00.
