A new chemical engineering senior elective course related to food engineering is discussed. The course developed and integrated applied food engineering coursework and food chemistry experiments to provide students with the skills directly relevant to the evolving needs of the food processing industry. Rowan Engineering is committed to being a major technological resource for the area, preparing students for engineering careers in regionally important industries such as food processing. The New Jersey Economic Development Authority has targeted food processing as one of the state's key industries and has arranged for over $50 million in financing to attract new food processors to the state.
