    Food Science and Technology concerns the chemistry and engineering necessary to deliver safe, appealing and convenient food products from the farm gate to the food marketer. The academic program integrates principles and concepts in the physical, biological, and engineering sciences, and applies them to the scientific and technological aspects of food processing. The role of the food scientist is to successfully integrate these disciplines to assure an abundant, high quality, and nutritious food supply.

    The Associate of Science (AS) Degree in Food and Fermentation Science is designed for students planning to transfer to Oregon State University. Students interested in transferring to OSU are strongly encouraged to enroll in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) as there may be lower-division courses required by the program that are only offered at OSU.
