Program Overview

Foods occupy an essential part of our life, and problems in food production directly threaten our life. That is why we think ethics, moral codes, advanced skills, and accurate knowledge in food production should spread across borders.

In this regard, we think it quite important for Toyo College of Food Technology to play a role in training international students from newly industrialized countries. It is also our great pleasure to advance scientific knowledge and technological skills through the international academic exchange.

Each year, we offer Short-term International Program. The program has two courses, one is Course for Students and the other one is Advanced Course per year.

Short-Term Program

Short-term program consists of lectures and practical training during a two week period. This program is given in English.

Practice Participants will gain practical skills in food processing & sealing technology such as pouched, cup and canned food processing, sterilization technology, quality evaluation of canned foods.
