Bio Brief

Jason Watt joined the Department of Grain Science and Industries at Kansas State University in 2015 as the Buhler instructor of milling.  Watt splits his time between teaching undergraduate classes and teaching short courses at the IGP Institute. Watt is responsible for instructing the undergraduate courses, Milling Science II (GRSC 502/503) and advanced flow sheets (GRSC 580). He also co-teaches Introduction to Grain Science and Industry (GRSC 101) and Milling Science I (GRSC 500/501) and Internship in Grain Science (GRSC 591). Watt is highly involved within the department and is a co-advisor for the Milling Science Club. Watt’s time at the IGP Institute is spent helping instruct both Buhler and KSU short courses. 

Watt graduated from Kansas State University with a B.S. in milling science and operations and an A.S. in mathematics from Butler Community College.

Watt brings in seven years of industry experience.
