About the Program

This 16-month program runs four consecutive semesters, providing training for those interested in a career as a food processing technician in the food and beverage manufacturing industry.

All theoretical training is supported by hands-on experience in mechanical shops, food processing experience at a semi-industrial (pilot plant) level, and co-op work in the industry.

Students in the Food Processing Technician program will receive training in mechanical systems and industrial maintenance as they apply to a food manufacturing operation and will have intensive hands-on mechanical experience with food processing equipment.
