Capstone Course in Food Science

Having a successful career in food science means being able to apply classroom learning to the real world. In a new capstone course for food science majors, students do just that — develop realistic, implementable solutions for local small-scale food companies and food entrepreneurs. With the help of a faculty mentor, teams of students act as consultants and research, develop and present proposed solutions to problems faced by companies working with the New York State Food Venture Center. The teams then present their results to industry partners and the larger Cornell food science community.
