My daughter is currently a senior in high school and is deciding what school to choose for food science. We visited a few schools where she has been accepted and was very impressed with some of the schools processing plants and new equipment they had at their school. Is it very important to be exposed to these equipment during her bachelor years of school.
That’s great and congratulations. Food science is a practical course and must therefore be accompanied with practical knowledge. Going to a school that has an operational food processing facility(s) should is the only best choice for any candidate. Having such facilities not only offers the student the opportunity to learn but also imagine, change, modify and innovate. You want your child to be able to run their own facility, start their own food processing company when they are done with their studies. Therefore, she needs the exposure.
