Department of Food Science and Technology

Welcome to the department of Food Science and Technology (FST) at The Ohio State University (OSU). Here at OSU, we combine world class faculty and staff with state-of-the-art facilities to give our undergraduate and graduate students the best experience possible. One of the main goals at OSU is to “put students first” and, at FST, we’re committed to making that happen. From a student perspective, we are one of the largest food science programs in the United States. We currently have about 220 undergraduates and 70 graduate students in our program. We offer a wide variety of specialized cutting-edge research programs that focus in areas such as food and health, emerging novel food processing and packaging technologies, and, food safety and quality programs. Our program also collaborates with and offers programs for the food industry and we are committed to meeting the needs of our food and agricultural stakeholders in Ohio.
