Pre-Event Short Courses

Design Thinking
IFT organizes, co-sponsors, and hosts a variety of in-person short courses as part of our mission to provide the food science community an opportunity to learn and exchange ideas. These courses are team-taught by leaders and experts in the field of food science, technology, and related disciplines.

Pre-IFT short courses will be held Saturday-Sunday, June 1-2, 2019 at the New Orleans Marriott, 555 Canal Street. The short course schedule is currently being developed. Check back in January 2019 for the final schedule of offerings.

Short course registration includes course materials, lunches, refreshment breaks, and a certificate of attendance. For all courses, presentation materials and certificates are distributed electronically – we highly recommend you bring your laptop or tablet to the course.
