Below is a recruitment message from Patricia Hingston from the UBC Food Science Department, looking for food industry partners interested in being a part of an undergraduate research project as part of the students' capstone course.
Dear BCFPA Member,
The UBC Food Science Department is looking to recruit industry partners that would be interested in having a research project conducted by fourth year undergraduate students as part of a capstone course. The objectives of the course are to provide students with an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge using an integrated approach to address a problem of relevance to the food industry.
The scope of the projects may involve product formulation, process development or improvement, quality assurance, analysis of chemical, physical, nutritional or sensory properties, microbiological assessment, etc. Students work in groups of 3 - 4 on a project in one of our labs here at UBC and can also perform some tasks at the company if needed. More information on the course can be found here.
If you or your team have a project(s) that you would like to submit for consideration, please do so using the form found here. The deadline for submissions is July 21, 2023.
If you have any additional questions please contact the course instructor Patricia Hingston (firstname.lastname@example.org).
