What We Do

Purdue Department of Food Science -- Fulfilling your company’s needs

The Department of Food Science was built around the idea that we have two customers; students, and the industry we serve. We have personnel on staff specifically to assist companies.

For the company that is interested in collaborating with the Department at "a higher level", we have our Industrial Associates, a 20+ year program that helps us improve our programs by staying in touch with our industry partners. Contact Tari Gary, Extension Administrator within the Department of Food Science, at for more information.

If you have hiring needs, we would be happy to share those with our students. Purdue Food Science is proud to say we continue to have 100% placement of our graduates. We will work with you on promoting your full-time and internship opportunities. 

Other resources, services, and programs that have been developed for our industrial partners include:
