Welcome to K-State Grain Science and IndustryWelcome to the Department of Grain Science and Industry at Kansas State University! Our globally unique programs are recognized for the quality of its graduates and the excellence of its faculty and staff. Students enroll in our academic programs to pursue undergraduate degrees in milling, bakery and feed science & management, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in grain science. Industry professionals from around the world seek out our department for continuing education via on-campus courses taught in our state-of-the-art facilities and via distance education courses. Companies come to our campus to support our education, research and outreach programs, and most importantly to engage our faculty and hire our graduates. The field of grain-based food and feed science is fast-growing and ever-changing. We at K-State are proud to be the primary training ground of managers and technology specialists who lead businesses and organizations to preserve the harvest, process grains into products, and feed the world. Whether you are a future student, a parent, or a business looking for education, research or employees, we thank you for your interest in our programs. We in the department are truly excited about being an integral part of this important science and industry. We hope that this excitement flows through everything we do! If you would like to talk to someone about our programs, we would like to encourage you to contact us at 785-532-4051 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
