About

Food Scientists apply science and engineering to study the physical, chemical, and biological nature of food. They develop new food products, design food processes, chemically analyze food, and evaluate food safety and sensory quality. We offer a master degree in Food Science at University of Georgia.

Overview

Our mission in the Food Science program from University of Georgia is to disseminate science-based knowledge of food through student education; to seek, verify, and apply information related to food; and to communicate through professional, scientific, and public outreach programs.

Features

  • Programs of study leading to both the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in food science are offered in the various fields of interest in the Division of Food Science and Technology.
  • Since the application of science and engineering is important in properly selecting, preparing, processing, packaging, distributing and utilizing foods, students selecting this field must be able to delve into problems involving chemistry, microbiology, engineering, and other sciences as well as in the more applied problems concerned with food production, stability, or toxicology. 

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • The food science and technology division occupies the food science building and the food processing laboratory in the University of Georgia Science Complex on South Campus in Athens and the food science building at the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station in Griffin. 
  • All three buildings are well-equipped with modern instrumentation, pilot plants, and other facilities necessary for graduate research in food processing, food chemistry, food microbiology, food engineering, sensory evaluation, food biotechnology, food toxicology, product development, and nutrient analyses.
