Food Biotechnology major aims to nurture human resources specialized in the future core technology that will contribute to the improvement of public health and quality of life, based on BT convergence technologies such as food science, molecular biology, food microbiology and ICT. To this end, this major provides in-depth curriculums, particularly in understanding human health and physiological activity of foods, studies on biological, chemical, and physical functional properties of foods (materials and compounds), food processing, food quality, and food safety. With the core technologies, it is going to conduct field-oriented training for each field.
