Grain Science and Industry

Ingrain Yourself....

The world is enormous and here you stand looking out  over endless fields of possibility. You want to choose wisely. You want a career that is interesting and meaningful, one that offers personal fulfilment as well as financial stability.

But so many job markets are swamped these days as university programs often graduate more specialists than the industries of their field can hire. To enhance your prospects, you need expertise that is in high demand.

The Grain Science and Industry program at Kansas State University invites you to take a close look at our degree programs, which prepare students for work in good-paying industries that have a shortage of qualified applicants.

K-State's Grain Science and Industry program is the only place in the United States that offers college degrees in Bakery Science & Management, Feed Science & Management, or Milling Science & Management- granting not only Bachelor of Science degrees in these areas, but also Graduate Degree, as well as Minors Program.

Since these degrees are in such high demand, our graduates receive some of the highest salary offers of any on the K-State campus. Graduates typically have a choice of what type of work they will do and even whether they will have live in a city, rural community, or abroad.

If you enroll in the program, you will participate in a curriculum of courses to learn the fundamentals in grain science and business, while at the same time gaining hands-on experience in K-State's modern laboratories, which include industrial scale flour mills, a feed production facility, and a bakery.

Scholarships, assistantships, and Internships are available for many students seeking financial assistance or direct industry experience.

It is our goal that, by the time you graduate our program, you will have a good understanding of the types and varieties of careers available to you, as well as the knowledge and skills you need to be successful.

And if after carefully surveying the field you see yourself particularly suited for a career in grain science, then there's only one thing left to do ...Ingrain Yourself!

Schedule a Visit

One of the best ways to learn about our department is to arrange a campus visit. Campus visits will allow you to meet some of our faculty and students, talk with an academic advisor, and/or tour our buildings and laboratories. Seeing friendly faculty faces and interacting with students can help you become more comfortable and certain about a decision to enroll.

We suggest that you visit while school is in session, so that you can get a better feel for the active life at K-State. It's best to avoid finals week and student holidays, since faculty and students are often very busy during these times.

To arrange a visit , please call the Office of Admissions at 785-532-6250 or 1-800-432-8270 during office hours, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
