Food Supply-Chain Equipment Operations

The focus of this course is description of equipment used throughout the food supply chain from harvest/assembly to preparation for consumption. After completing this course, students will recognize how equipment systems are assembled within a facility and the role of sensing and control systems in operation of facilities for handling, manufacturing, storage, distribution and preparation of foods. Cross-listed in FdScTe.

Introduction to Graduate - Level East Asian Studies

This interdisciplinary course is a combination of student explorations of scholarly work in East Asia and subjects in these cultures. Readings and presentations on the impact of STEM in agriculture and environment on the cultures in East Asia. Students participate in group discussions of student research and professionalism. Repeatable to a maximum of 6 cr hrs. This course is graded S/U.
