Education

Providing undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students a team-based, systems-oriented, problem-solving education in engineering, biochemistry and the food sciences is our educational goal.

The objectives of the AUDFS education program are:

  • to produce the next generation of industry scientists and leaders with the requisite engineering/biology education for food and related industries
  • to involve undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty and industry scientists/engineers in cross-disciplinary research programs by educating students in systems-driven team-oriented research
  • to provide undergraduates, graduate students and industrial practitioners with the necessary breadth of background in adjoining technologies and specific information in a field to affect permanent changes through the adoption of new technologies
  • to integrate the best of multimedia presentation and web-based technologies in course delivery, education and outreach

So far, these objectives have led our center to accomplish much, including: 

  • Over $1 million in funded educational projects (USDA & NSF funded)
  • Streaming video and DVD for off-campus students
  • Food Safety/Production Practitioners
  • Credit for certification and advanced degrees
