Food bioengineering is a field of study that looks at developing the future food industry. Students research how to produce, supply and use high quality high yield varieties, applying production and cutting-edge bioengineering technology to main staples and food crops such as rice, barley and wheat and special use crops, medicinal crops and forage crops. Crop molecular breeding labs, plant molecular biology labs, plant new material development labs and agricultural ecology/crop labs are set up to foster professionals who can lead the food and bioengineering industry in the future.
Upon graduation, students can apply for jobs at food production and consumption research centers as well as administrative and educational institutions. Other options include working for feed corporations, agricultural businesses, the food industry and bioengineering research and development centers and companies.
