Department of Food Science and Development

KYUNGIL Department of Food Science and Development

  • To educate professionals who will be leaders in the food industry and propagate knowledge of a healthy diet to local communities and the nation
  • To offer hands-on field work experiences and carry out promotional programs in order to gain a comprehensive capacity for the areas of food science and nutrition


Food Sciences is a practical comprehensive study field which originated from the food industry and includes such areas as food production, processing and consumption. This science is closely associated with nutritional science which deals with the physiological outcome of food intake and its impact on human health.
In 2009, the Korean government declared certain areas to be main drivers for new growth. In this declaration the main drivers were the high value of food products, global health care, new materials, nano-fusion sciences and bio pharmaceuticals; all of which are related to the area of food science. Hence, we are expecting huge actual growth and tremendous social demands for food sciences.
The Division of Food Science offers two major tracks; Food Industry and Clinical Nutrition. The Food Industry track offers students the opportunity to study product development, planning, quality control and food technology. We also aim to cultivate future experienced experts in the food industry by focusing on field based practice. The Clinical Nutrition track offers several course works and a dietetic internship which are necessary for fostering professionals in food science and nutrition, food hygiene and clinical nutrition.
