Fermentation Sciences Minor

About this Program:

Enable students enrolled in the program to develop specific science-based knowledge, skills and expertise in the fermentation sciences area to broaden their employment and/or entrepreneurial opportunities.

Currently, there is enormous interest in the use of microorganisms at an industrial level in fields such as the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries. Even though fermentations have been used since ancient times as methods for food preservation, the industrial potential for sustainable production of many types of bio-based materials (ranging from foods and beverages, to biofuels, bioplastics, biopharmaceuticals, and fine chemicals) is only beginning to be explored.
