All FST options are approved by the Higher Education Committee of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), signifying to potential employers and graduate schools that the curricula provide the depth and breadth of preparation for success in a wide variety of careers in Food Science and Technology.  IFT approval of the program also makes our students eligible to compete for IFT National and Oregon Section scholarships.

Academic advising provides one-on-one guidance in academic and career planning.  Additionally, faculty mentors regularly provide opportunities for talented undergraduates to participate in food science research projects.  The faculty also maintains strong relationships with the food industry, and other FST benefactors, that help generate scholarships and career related summer employment opportunities for our students.
