The food and beverage industry is the second largest manufacturing sector in Ontario in terms of value of shipments and employment, and generates $41 billion in annual revenue. Food processing operations not only require advanced engineering science, but also an in-depth understanding of food sciences, food safety and related policies and regulations.

Western Engineering, in collaboration with Brescia’s School of Food and Nutritional Sciences, offers a Master of Engineering (MEng) in Food Processing, starting September 2019. This one-year graduate program provides students theoretical and practical skills to meet the demands of the food industry.
