In the Department of Food Science at Ishikawa Prefectural University’s Faculty of Bioresources and Environmental Sciences, we aim to nurture individuals with specialist knowledge and skills related to food. With a focus on agricultural, livestock and fishery products, students utilize the latest science and technology such as biotechnology to develop new technologies to manufacture, process, store, and distribute food, and to gain an understanding of food safety and functionality. Education and research focuses on supply systems to provide safe and reliable food and on the maintenance and promotion of health through food.
In the Master’s Degree Course, we aim to educate specialists who can work towards building community systems for safe and reliable food, which encompass the ideas of biological sustainability, biodiversity, the limited nature of resources and recycling, based on the educational courses in the Department of Food Science. In this way, we hope to nurture individuals with unique and creative ways of thinking, who can become active in the research and development arenas of local industry.
In order to achieve the above, four research fields (details below) have been set up in the Division of Food Science as the basic units for education and research.
