Pushing the boundaries of food development through science is at the core of Drexel’s Master of Science in Food Science.
The program offers a dynamic, multidisciplinary education grounded in the latest research techniques and technological applications for those interested in applying science to meet an ever-growing demand for healthy, safe, and nutritious foods.
The Food Science curriculum was created to meet the highest standards of food science by faculty who are also leading practitioners in the field. In as few as six quarters, students learn to integrate the disciplines of chemistry, physics, engineering, microbiology, and nutrition to study food ingredients and their physiochemical and biochemical interactions at the molecular and cellular levels. Full access to Drexel’s expansive research resources leads to a research project or design that students execute as a thesis under faculty direction.
