Our Department is
a team of scientists, researchers, and teachers committed
to guiding the undergraduate and graduate education
of students preparing for professional and technical
careers in Food, Bioprocessing, and Nutrition Sciences.
We identify, develop, and apply the appropriate concepts,
theories, and emerging methodologies from the fundamental
disciplines of chemistry, engineering, microbiology,
food and bioprocessing, nutrition, and sensory science,
to the investigation of critical issues in food & biological systems,
components, products, and processes.
We interpret, adapt and extend research information
to the North Carolina, national, and international
food and bioprocessing industries.
We maintain and improve the safety, variety, and quality
of food and biological products.
