Why Ohio State Department of Food Science & Technology?
The Ohio State University has the only approved Food Science program in Ohio, an approval process performed by the Institute of Food Technologists: http://www.ift.org/community/students/approved-undergrad-programs.aspx. OSU is also recognized as a premiere institution for its research, academics and outreach programs on a national and international level. Students at The Ohio State University experience a very high quality of life. From the football games and Columbus night life to interactive classes and assorted student organizations, the degree is only a fraction of what our students get.
This department is no exception to the excellence that is Ohio State. Students receive individualized academic advising with faculty that aids in the formation of connections with peers, faculty, staff, and industry professionals. Faculty and students in the Food Science Department are partnering with research groups across Ohio State's campus. Many major food processing and research companies are conveniently located in Ohio including Abbott Nutrition, Battelle, Dannon, The Kroger Company, J.M. Smucker, T.Marzetti and Nestle. In this department, you are more than just a face and name- we put students first.
