About

Food Science at Washington State University is a multidisciplinary science that applies biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, nutrition, and other sciences to improve the safety and quality of food products; develop new food products; and design new, safer, and more energy-efficient food preservation methods. 

Overview

The curriculum emphasizes courses in food processing, food chemistry, food microbiology, sensory evaluation, and other specialized areas.  Some of the coursework is in cooperation with nearby University of Idaho.  Examples include the processing and manufacturing of cereal, dairy, fruit, and vegetable products; including cheeses, wines, and potatoes. Departmental faculty and adjunct/affiliate faculty may all serve as student advisors. Faculty are housed at the WSU Pullman and Tri-Cities campuses, and the research station in Prosser, WA. Each student’s program of study is individualized based on their research interests, prior academic experience, and collaboration with their major advisor.
