The opportunities for food, bioprocess engineers and prospecting undergraduates in the food processing industry are discussed. The latest trends in food and bioprocess technologies and specific skill sets needed by graduates are discussed to better understand the food and bioprocess engineering jobs. Current thrust in the food processing and bioprocessing field are found to be directed by three major areas like quality and safety, nutrition and health and the environment. It is suggested that the responsibility of the food and bioprocess engineer is to understand and stay current on technological innovations that can reduce the potential environmental impact of food and biological processes.
