Using Human-Centered Design concepts, you will work in teams with industry partners, such as General Mills and Kraft Foods, to solve professional food science problems while developing novel food products. At the end of the semester, we invite industry representatives and students majoring in a variety of concentrations from across the campus for the Product Pitch and Product Showcase event. Selected product pitches will receive capacity funding to develop the product concept into a potential venture opportunity. Concepts will be further developed for the annual University of Illinois Cozad New Venture Competition and for one of the IFTSA product development competitions.
