Food Science Technology

Program Overview

Look at the food on your plate at your next meal or lining the shelves the next time you’re at the supermarket. You assume it will be safe and high quality. Most people don’t think about it, but food science plays an essential role in every facet of the multi-billion-dollar food industry to ensure that safe and nutritious food is available.

Our Food Science Technology program covers many specializations within the realm of food science, including food biochemistry, fermentation, protein science, food analysis, and research and product development.

With a food science degree or certification, you can seek employment at federal, state, and local levels of government, as well as companies involved in food and nutritional development, and food production.

If you’re interested in a career involving food science technology, such as a food science technician, food inspector, food safety officer, food analyst, or food sales representative, our Food Science Technology program can make it happen for you. Start your journey today!

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
